This week on social: Elder Andersen pays tribute to Pelé, President Cordon talks about FSY in 2023

President Johnson says husbands and wives should work together as equal partners

The week after Christmas, Church leaders took to social media to share reflections, insights, memories and counsel.

Following the death of Pelé, Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles posted on Facebook about the time he had the privilege of having lunch with the Brazilian soccer star in São Paulo, Brazil. Elder Andersen was serving in the Brazil Area presidency at the time.

“We spoke of things that matter eternally,” Elder Andersen wrote.

Relief Society General President Camille N. Johnson wrote on Facebook about partnership in marriage and the roles of men and women. “Husbands and wives should work together as partners to care for their children and help them draw closer to Jesus Christ.”

Brother Jan E. Newman, second counselor in the Sunday School general presidency, asked on Facebook what people learned from last year’s “Come, Follow Me,” and what they are looking forward to in studying the New Testament in 2023.

Young Women General President Bonnie H. Cordon posted a video on Instagram with her two counselors answering the question, “Should I go to FSY?”

Sister Michelle D. Craig, first counselor in the Young Women general presidency, shared treasured recipes on Instagram as a way to reflect on what makes this a favorite time of year for many: “our Heavenly Father and the infinite gift of His Son, Jesus Christ.”

Christmas Day posts on social

Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles tweeted a painting of the Nativity on Christmas Day, and quoted Luke 2:11.

On Christmas, Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles wrote on Instagram, “Let us all remember what our Savior has done for us and love and serve Him this Christmas and always.

About the hymn, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” Brother Bradley R. Wilcox, second counselor in the Young Men general presidency, wrote on Facebook, “The word ‘hark’ is an urgent plea to listen!”
