The event is designed to be consistent with President M. Russell Ballard’s comments, “Mormon leaders, along with the rank and file, need to listen to and understand what LGBT members are feeling and experiencing. We must do better than we have in the past until all feel they have a spiritual home… a place to worship and serve the Lord.” (Nov 2017 BYU Devotional)
