Sister Wright shared why heart-shaped stop lights in Iceland represent acting in kindness and love

On social media this week, leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints posted about interfaith relationships, seeing life through the Savior, acts of kindness and more.

Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles met with National Council of Religions for Peace members in the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kinshasa. On Nov. 13, he tweeted, “When we work together with various faiths across the world, we can achieve great accomplishments.”

“What helps YOU to see your life through the Savior — and see more of Him in your life?” asked Sister Tracy Y. Browning on Instagram. The second counselor in the Primary general presidency explained on Nov. 12 that seeing the world through the Savior allows for strength when facing life’s challenges.

On Nov. 15, Sister Amy A. Wright, first counselor in the Primary general presidency, posted on Instagram about acts of kindness and love, as she was inspired by what she saw in Iceland. She said, “It is my prayer that we will seek out inspired ways in which we can instill the love of God in the lives of all those within our realm of influence.”

Relief Society General President Camille N. Johnson wrote about the priesthood on Instagram on Nov. 13. She shared, “I am learning that in order to draw upon priesthood power, I must do more than just obey the commandments.”

President M. Russell Ballard, Acting President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, tweeted on Nov. 16, “I testify that there is hope and peace in Christ. He can carry us today through difficult times.”

On Nov. 16, Elder Ulisses Soares of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles took to Facebook to reflect on his participation in the annual celebration of Latin American culture “Luz de las Naciones.” He said: “Celebrating our culture and our heritage connects us with one another and helps us appreciate that we are all God’s children.”

Primary General President Susan H. Porter and Sister Michelle D. Craig, first counselor in the Young Women general presidency, posted on Instagram from Ghana’s National Mosque on Nov. 16. Sister Craig wrote, “We can learn so much from other people of faith!”

On Facebook, Young Men General President Steven J. Lund posted about a personal experience that one of the actors shared with him while on the set of the Book of Mormon videos. He invited all to ponder the questions, “Are you standing in places that the faith of your personal heroes would send you? What is something a parent or role model has taught you about following Christ?”

“The heavens are not closed, and the Savior continues to reveal His mind and will to His servants, the prophets,” testified Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles on Instagram. On Nov. 17, he said that claiming it is unreasonable to have faith in Christ is, in itself, unreasonable. He invited all to read part 1 and part 2 of his recent devotional messages given to young adults.

Relief Society General President Camille N. Johnson posted on Facebook on Nov. 18 about being in Kansas City, Missouri, for the unveiling of a #LightTheWorld Giving Machine.
