Many of you heard Elder Uchtdorf speak about The Hobbit, the Gospel, and Albus Dumbledore in his General Conference talk.
Twitter was abuzz!

Not a member of the church, but this talk from Uchtdorf has been wicked good and relatable for money. Love the Hobbit references. Life truly is an adventure. #GeneralConference

Elder Uchtdorf plus the Hobbit equals pure joy. The intersection of my favorite things!

The Hobbit canonized?
I think #ElderUchtdorf just made The Hobbit the 5th.

Do you personally like THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy?
In and of itslef, the trilogy contains many great and inspirational quotes which could be used in future General Conference talks.
Peter Jackson, inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien, gave Gandalf, a wizard, one of the best lines ever about kindness, love, and keeping evil in check (in ourselves and others).
“Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps because I am afraid, and he gives me courage.”
