The whole conference was really a tonic. I think we all needed it. Elder Oaks & Elder Holland. Sister Franco’s talk at the women’s session. And the Tabernacle Choir. Hearing them on recordings felt like they’d never been away,  :) even though they haven’t met, practiced, or performed in months.

A couple of people mentioned technical difficulties. Yes, a little trouble on Saturday afternoon, which eventually straightened itself out. I had a few little bugs off & on all weekend. But I was still able to hear everyone (I ended up selecting “Listen” rather than “Watch” to try to speed up my reception, & it worked fine).

Yay! The text version are up. Here is the part I remember from Elder Jaggi's address:

Quote
Patience’s perfect work may also be illustrated in the life of one of Christ’s early disciples, Simon the Canaanite. The Zealots were a group of Jewish nationalists who strongly opposed Roman rule. The Zealot movement advocated violence against the Romans, their Jewish collaborators, and the Sadducees by raiding for provisions and pursuing other activities to aid their cause (see Encyclopedia Britannica, “Zealot,” britannica.com). Simon the Canaanite was a Zealot (see Luke 6:15). Imagine Simon trying to coax the Savior into taking up arms, leading a militant group, or creating chaos in Jerusalem. Jesus taught:

“Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. …

“Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. …

“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God” (Matthew 5:5, 7, 9).

Simon may have embraced and advocated his philosophy with zeal and passion, but the scriptures suggest that through the influence and example of the Savior, his focus changed. His discipleship of Christ became the central focus of his life’s efforts.

...

Of all the zealous social, religious, and political endeavors of our day, let disciple of Jesus Christ be our most pronounced and affirming affiliation.
All grown-ups were once children...but only few of them remember it. ― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, "The Little Prince."
