Instead of selecting a Conference address for the focus of the program, our host breaks with his tradition by discussing the changes announced in Conference and projecting into the future — Our host shares his experience fasting before Conference — In the scriptures, fasting goes hand in hand with solemn assemblies — The changes before Conference laid the foundation for the changes announced during Conference, and those changes practiced after Conference will lay the groundwork for the next step in our evolution as a people — That evolution resembles the children of Israel transitioning out of the law of Moses into the higher law — Melchizedek Priesthood brethren will now meet together — Does this mean we can’t tell any more jokes about the high priests falling asleep? — Love makes everything right, right? — Shedding our generational lenses will help LDS singles — The changes presented in Conference will prepare us as a people for the Second Coming — Those changes will also help us fill our greatest need, which is having someone walk with us in life
We can truly be one when we embrace the changes announced in Conference — We’ll stop putting each other into boxes and see each other as God sees us — Our host shares his delight with the death of home teaching as well as stories from his college days — Our host once offered to help with visiting teaching and attend Relief Society — We’ll be living the scriptures, like Moroni 6:5, for example — The common experience of singles not fitting into their general membership wards will be a thing of the past — The new marker of acceptance within our culture will be making and keeping covenants — A new culture centered on Christ will support many singles and help everyone prepare for the Second Coming — Our host relishes the death of home teaching because he wants real — Rote performances will be replaced with ministering to support people — Singles will benefit greatly by adopting that attitude in their activities
Our host begins assembling the pieces of the evolution thus far to project into the future and predict the death of singles wards — Our general memberships will provide all that singles need when we are truly knit together as one — Those with a traditional mindset will resist that change — Separating ourselves by marital status creates many of the challenges LDS singles have within LDS culture — Our host rejects the traditional mindset because changing the way he thinks has changed his life — Our host shares experiences he had related to a visit from President Dallin H Oakes to his stake conference — When our general membership wards meet our needs, we won’t need singles wards
