Strive to be Persons of Goodwill Toward All – Root Out Racism

I was excited to read the new policies on racism, and loving all of God’s children to our Latter-day Saint handbook.

“The church calls on all people to abandon attitudes and actions of prejudice toward any group or individual. Members of the church should lead out in promoting respect for all of God’s children. Members follow the Savior’s commandment to love others (see Matthew 22:35–39). They strive to be persons of goodwill toward all, rejecting prejudice of any kind. This includes prejudice based on race, ethnicity, nationality, tribe, gender, age, disability, socioeconomic status, religious belief or nonbelief, and sexual orientation.”

Peter Moosman – Dennis – Hug a Gay Latter-day Saint

President Dallin H. Oaks said during October’s conference that church members should “root out racism.” A few weeks later, he encouraged BYU students to “heed our prophet’s call” to end racism.

I love what it says in (Matthew 22:38-39) This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.


Meet my friend Peter, who’s gay and LDS. He started an awareness project of going to general conference and holding colorful signs out side the Conference Center saying, “Hug a Gay Latter-day Saint!” 🏳️‍🌈

What did you like about the update❓

I am sending all of you virtual hug’s. ❣️

Prepare for General Conference

As we prepare for General Conference. I reflect and ponder. 🤔I am reminded; “There is a treasure chest of heavenly direction awaiting our discovery. Among the messages delivered only from those called by God.” 😇 It’s our time to hear from Him. Our prophet, and apostles. I have been preparing by reading scripture.  Studying,  reaching out to other members and friends.

I’ve been blessed by serving as an ambassador for Missionaries Worldwide. Meeting dozens of missionaries around the world. 🌎 Sharing,💡 light, joy, with future and returning Missionaries.

How have you started to prepare for this glorious General Conference?

Love, Dennis
