Thursday, May 12, 2022
President and Prophet Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and his wife, Sister Wendy Nelson, will speak to young adults on Sunday, May 15 at 8 p.m.
All young adults, age 18-30, including those in the greater Chattanooga area, are invited to participate. The broadcast will be available on YouTube, BYUtv, broadcasts.ChurchofJesusChrist.org and other outlets.
President Nelson is the 17th president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Before being called to serve as a Church leader, he was an internationally renowned heart surgeon and medical researcher. He was part of a team that developed the heart-lung machine that made open heart surgery possible.
As president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, President Nelson testifies that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of the world. “He loves you,” President Nelson said. “He leads and guides His Church…. Because of Him, you can experience the joy and miracle of forgiveness.”
Sister Nelson is a retired marriage and family therapist and professor. She is an author, speaker and former clinical researcher. She encourages all to study and understand the doctrine of Christ and said, “There is nothing more important than making covenants with God and then keeping them with increasing precision, because making covenants with God calls forth the divine within us and keeping our covenants with God allows him to pour his divine power into us.”
Both President and Sister Nelson invite everyone to remove contention from their lives. “If you want to have a wonderful life, a life filled with momentum and optimism and accomplishments, remove contention from your mind and heart, from your conversations and relationships, from your home and from your workplace,” Sister Nelson said.
President Nelson said, “Contention violates everything the Savior stood for and taught…. We call upon people everywhere to pray…to do what they can to help the distressed and to seek The Lord’s help in ending any major conflicts.”
"We invite all to hear more from President and Sister Nelson on May 15," officials said.
