Afternoon meeting....




Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of His Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

Elder Wilson does something worthy of notice.  Prayer is not a common undertaking. When we pray, we often ought to so on our knees. At times this is not possible. In large groups, with stationary seating, there is not enough room to kneel. But, Elder Wilson understands that it is not a good thing to just sit while prayer is being offered. He asks the council to stand when offering prayer. It is something we ought to pray about doing in our churches. Too often we just sit and pray. The standard continues to be lowered. Let us lift it up higher and higher.

When it is happening and there is not an outcry it is being approved by silence. When we have all this inclusive propaganda without qualification it is acceptance.

If I remember right, the discussion took place on the 12th.  I heard part of it live, but had to leave soon after it started. I patiently listened to all of the 11th's meetings, and look forward to watching the 12th's soon.

I just finished the closing meeting and did not see the discussion on transgenders. Can someone tell me if it was in the morning or afternoon meeting on the 11th?
