General Conference Greatest Hits
A few days ago I searched on the LDS library app and found a great talk from Marvin J. Ashton with audio and video! It was a flashback to hear Elder Ashton’s voice (my grandma’s favorite apostle). After his talk finished it automatically started playing the next talk – President Kimball! So many years have gone by since I’ve heard his voice, croaky and unique, a voice of certainty and faith from my childhood. Since then I’ve listened to most of the talks from that October 1975 General Conference session. (There was a welfare session that year, was that a regular occurance?) I’m amazed at the perspective those talks give me of the gospel and of the changes that have happened in the world. Obviously there are a few things that are dated, but in large part I was touched and inspired.
Have you listened to or watched some older General Conferences?
What place do these dated addresses hold in our current doctrinal understanding?
Do you have a favorite General Conference talk?
