I agree with the previous poster that we should keep this no old white guy trend going. This is shaping up as a very international session. I like it
The only thing they need for more diversity is more women. But for now I will settle for NOT hearing form the same old 12.

I wonder when/if we'll ever see the LGBTQ group represented in general conf.

I say 10 years.

Likely we have heard from lgbtq members for years they are just in denial or still in the closet.

Let’s see, 78 was when they gave blacks the priesthood and it took them 40 odd years to have a black 70 speak. They haven’t given LGBT church worthiness yet, so I say closer to 50 years.

Agreed. Despite my cynicism it is a step forward to emphasize diversity, despite it being way out of character based on past practice.

You're probably right, but I was hoping for a more exponential change, especially as the church continues to dwindle in growth and retention.

This talk started out so well about Jesus, then to profit worship. So I'll give it +1 for his good start, and a +1 for the ending refocusing on Jesus.

Wong is giving me concern the positive trend is going to end.

Agreed. So I'll only give him a -4 for content. Still a net positive of +1. I'm reaching now.
