2024 Fall General Conference

And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you, and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh and will give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in my statutes, and keep my ordinances, and do them. And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

Ezekiel 3:18

In the Prayer for Covenant it says O Lord, remove our blindness, forgive our sins and weaknesses, give to us a new heart that we may become children of the Most High God. In the Answer to Prayer for Covenant it says obtain a new heart. We hope to discover some of what it might take to obtain a new heart together.

Conference Info

We are excited to announce the 2024 fall conference that expect will be held in late October this year. We want to invite you to labor willingly alongside us in an effort to obtain a new heart together.

We look forward to see how this conference turns out! We hope it can be used to deepen our connections with each other! Come ready to share, learn and labor to consider how we as people can be and do better. Can we rise up and sing in harmony together?

We are also very grateful for a hymn books effort that is underway! The hope is that there will be two volumes complete by this conference and presented here! We feel like this will go great with what we are facing together!

Sharing What We’ve Learned

We know that the questions What have you learned? What ought you to have learned? carry with them a lot of history and is a very sensitive topic. It is a heavy thing to consider, and we are not taking it lightly. You’ll notice we have this conference title worded “What have [we] learned? What ought [we] to have learned?”. That is intentional because we are hoping that we can look inside ourselves as a body with collective pondering, seeking for light on these topics. To acknowledge as a body that our hearts have not been right is no easy thing. In the answer to prayer for covenant we are told twice if your hearts were right… indicating that our hearts (plural) need our laboring together to be changed to a new heart (one).

Beating Our Swords Into Plowshares

And it shall come to pass in the last days, when the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills, and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, and he will teach us of his ways and we will walk in his paths. For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations and shall rebuke many people. And they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.

2 Nephi 8:4

Beating our swords into plowshares and obtaining a new heart is a refining process. This process requires that we take the swords and spears that currently divide us and use them instead to cultivate our relationships. The very issues that have been used to divide us is what is needed to bring us to further light and truth together. This is a process where we, by revelation, will learn of his ways in order to walk in his paths. We cannot skip the process by which revelation comes and a new heart is obtained. We do not fully understand how this process works, but we understand, at least in part, where it must start.

More information will be coming soon.
