Monday, September 16, 2019 - by Phil Smartt

President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has invited all to watch a special BYU Devotional scheduled for Tuesday at 1 p.m. at which time he will speak from the campus of Brigham Young University. 

He invites all, including those in the greater Chattanooga area, and especially young adults, to tune in to his live message which will be broadcast on the Church’s Facebook page, YouTube channel, main website at ChurchofJesusChrist.org and BYUtv.  

“I think about the issues facing young people daily,” President Nelson the prophet tweeted.  “I feel inspired to share an important message with you on Sept. 17 at [1 p.m.].  My dear young friends, you are literally sons and daughters of God.  He loves you. I love you, too!  I invite you to join me on Tuesday as I share an important message about God’s love for you.  We’ll see you soon.”    

According to officials, “This is President Nelson’s 22nd time speaking at BYU.  He first spoke there in 1974.”  Young people from the greater Chattanooga area, and adults, too, will tune in.  All are invited to hear this important message from the world’s prophet.
