Reverence is requested in the chapel

So can I just say that was A big topic tonight at the Stake Conference Elder Kenneth Johnson,
so the very first thing he started out was that if we are to recieve revelation we need to be reverent when we are in the chapel. HE was fist on pupit... So I think things might be changing when we go into our chapel.

He started out with questions and asked the sister's for questions. there were a few good ones. so a young single sister asked how she could serve more... 2/3 of our stake is single.

so instead of Elder Johnson answering the questions he would pick a member of the stake to answer them.

anyway President London made his comments and elder Johnson got up and made comment o 3 Nephi 11:14-17; 3 Nephi 17: ; 3 Nephi 18:36; 3 Nephi 28:1 "one by one".

talked about Brother Millet and Brother Hall, and praying and dividing food.

I was thinking Activity theme could be "one by one".

Then we talked about Value of coming to church.
President Thacher talked about Faith and "Why not just be a good person"
D&C 42:61
once againg Elder Johnson mentioned that Every meeting is to be reverenced to recieve Revelation.
D&C 101:1
D&C 138:56
and the value of coming to church
3 Nephi 9:20; D&C 88:33; D&C 44:2

Sister Moffet (Mission President's Wife) Picked Balance in your life
-Prayer as a family
-Read Scpriture as a family
-Dinner she made comment that they always had dinner as a family, it might not be until 7 at night but they had dinner as a family
-Date night every Friday night

and I as she was talking she made comment that she always had to sit alone with the family and well... I was thinking FRONT ROW DAVIS FAMILY

ELder Johnson made comment from President Hickley Jan 2004 leadership on rejoice in the power of the Savior page 22/23
4 fold
1st family
2nd Employeement
3rd Lord's Work
4th Self

There is more that I will post later!

I am pleased to see how well you listened which is evidenced by the fact that you obviously took good notes. You would not know all of the scripture references if you hadn't. Scott, I think you are ready for something new and I can't wait to see what it is.
