VIDEO: Room in the Inn By Elder Gerrit W. Gong of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

Elder Gerrit W. Gong speaks at the 191st Annual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on April 3-4, 2021. Elder Gong teaches that the Savior invites us to be good Samaritans who welcome all to His Inn (meaning His Church), where they can find refuge.

Elder Gong spoke about this parable:

“First, we come to the Inn as we are, with the foibles and imperfections we each have. Yet we all have something needed to contribute.


Second, He entreats us to make His Inn a place of grace and space, where each can gather, with room for all. As disciples of Jesus Christ, all are equal, with no second-class groups.

Third, in His Inn we learn perfection is in Jesus Christ, not in the perfectionism of the world. Unreal and unrealistic, the world’s “insta-perfect” filtered perfectionism can make us feel inadequate, captive to swipes, likes, or double taps. In contrast, our Savior, Jesus Christ, knows everything about us we don’t want anyone else to know, and He still loves us.

Fourth, at His Inn we become part of a gospel community centered in Jesus Christ, anchored in restored truth, living prophets and apostles, and another testament of Jesus Christ—the Book of Mormon. He brings us to His Inn and also to His house—the holy temple.

Finally, fifth, we rejoice that God loves His children in our different backgrounds and circumstances, in every nation, kindred, and tongue, with room for all in His Inn.”
