Priesthood session

Sensing that the congregation may be weary from sitting, having been edified by 90 or so minutes of instruction on honoring the priesthood and serving others, President Gordon B. Hinckley bade all deacons, teachers and priests to stand up and stretch. Next he invited all former deacons, teachers and priests to stand up. He then said he would like to say a few things to the boys, adding with a smile, "You old men can listen or sleep."

But President Hinckley's address - like the other sermons at Saturday's priesthood session - proved applicable to the entire congregation. The messages were enhanced by music from a priesthood choir from Ricks College, directed by Clyde Luke and Kevin Brower and accompanied by Clay Christiansen.President Thomas S. Monson, second counselor in the First Presidency, conducted the session. Prayers were offered by Elder L. Aldin Porter of the Presidency of the Seventy and by Elder Dennis B. Neuenschwander of the Seventy.
