Elder Nelson reminds us that to commemorate the 2000th anniversary of the Lord’s birth, 15 modern-day prophets, seers, and revelators issued and signed their testimony to a declaration titled “The Living Christ.” He encourages us to study carefully the contents of this modern apostolic document.
Activity: On Easter Sunday, April 1, 2018, we can again find ways to view the General Conference Sessions.

The veil o’er the earth is beginning to burst.’”
