Elder Jeffrey Holland is a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. An educator and administrator, he is one of the highest ranking leaders in the Church. In this revealing exchange, Elder Holland shares how this period provides a first stop after forty years of intense activity. This is a transformative moment for him and it has  transformative potential for the entire Church. With more time to pray and with the deepening that is brought about by relative solitude, the sense of care for the other is made more real and more specific to all. It also expands and is universalized, drawing closer to his awareness the fundamental realization that we are all children of one father. With this broadening and deepening of vision come new opportunities and possibilities for how he, as a leader of the Church, would wish to see the Church’s service to humanity in the future and how this recovery of a deeper unity might translate in its policies and priorities.

VIDEO: Elder Uchtdorf: This virus did not catch Heavenly Father by surprise . . .

Even though this pandemic is not what we wanted or expected, God has prepared his children and his church for this time. This virus did not catch Heavenly Father by surprise. With his help, we will move forward and upward. We will be better as a result, the savior and his gospel message are the pathway to a brighter future. Our best days are ahead of us, not behind us. God has something unimaginable in mind for us.
