Gratitude: Day 3

Today I'm grateful for the church.  More specifically, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

It's Stake Conference around these parts, and today was the leadership training meeting and the adult session.  At each of these meetings it really hit home how important the church is, how all of the programs and meetings are meant to help people come closer to Christ.  The leadership training focused a lot on self-reliance and welfare.  I absolutely love that they said over and over that we should be guided by the Spirit in all things. That people are what matters, and if the Spirit tells us to do something that isn't within the regular guidelines, we should listen to that prompting.  It was a great reminder of what this church is all about, and the need to look after the one.
