It happens twice a year, in April and October, as the senior leaders of the LDS Church speak to the general membership of the LDS Chruch in person (to those attending at the Conference Center in Salt Lake City) and via radio, television, and the Internet. The big news: Elder Neal L. Anderson was called as an LDS apostle, filling out that senior quorum to its full complement of twelve. Until now, Elder Anderson has been serving as the senior member of the Presidency of the Seventy (another senior LDS leadership quorum).
For the very best real-time Conference coverage, visit the Messenger and Advocate blog. If you prefer to twitter, visit the BCC comment threads. I’m traveling this weekend, but I’ll be posting on some Conference talks next week. Transcripts of Conference talks are generally posted at LDS.org on Wednesday or Thursday.
