A worldwide devotional for young adults was transmitted live on the Church satellite system, ChurchofJesusChrist.org, and other media on Sunday, January 12, 2020, at 6:00 p.m. mountain standard time.

Elder D. Todd Christofferson, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and his wife, Sister Katherine Christofferson, were the featured speakers.

Elder Christofferson referenced the song “Slow Down” by Sissel and The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square. See the song he played below.

Internationally acclaimed Norwegian-born singer Sissel performed “Slow Down,” by Chuck Girard and arranged by Sam Cardon, during the 2019 Pioneer Day Concert with The Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square. This was a stand-out moment in the concert that brought on many tears and a standing ovation each night. Sissel expresses emotion and meaning through lyrics and music like no other.

 

Lyrics: 

In the midst of my confusion

In the time of desperate need

When I am thinking not too clearly

A gentle voice does intercede

 

Slow down, slow down, be still

Be still and wait, on the Spirit of the Lord

Slow down and hear His voice

And know that He is God

 

In the time of tribulation

When I’m feeling so unsure

When things are pressing in about me

Comes a gentle voice so still, so pure

 

Slow down, slow down, be still, my child

Be still and wait, on the Spirit of the Lord

Slow down and hear His voice

And know that He is God

And know that He is God

 

Audiences still have not forgotten Sissel’s stunning performances at the Choir and Orchestra’s 2006 Christmas concerts and still regard her as one of the favorite guests of the Choir. The concert was shown in 2007 on PBS stations to 4 million viewers around the country. The Christmas CD, Spirit of the Season, was #1 on Billboard’s Classical chart for nine weeks and was nominated for two Grammy® awards.
