Sunday, February 26 - Relief Society

Welcome to Stake Relief Society Presidency and President Young

President Young

Principle of revelation
Blessing other people's lives blesses your own
Receive revelation to bless the lives of others
Listening and doing as the Spirit direct
Wilford of the Holy Ghost...greatest gift bestowed upon man
The Lord will tell you what to do if you will just listen
Shared an experience about the promptings he received regarding a friend of his who needed someone to help him through some challenges in his life
Great joy from serving others
We've GOT to serve others

Sister Arthur

Focus on the Why of the Gospel
Why does Heavenly Father ask us to take on the (sacrament) covenants?
In service we represent the Father

Receiving the Holy Ghost
Helps us discern between the "giving" principle of the Gospel and the "taking" of the world
Personal revelation to help others

Becoming a member of the Church
Organization of the Relief Society
Using our natural inclination as women of being compassionate
Praying to ask for inspiration
First, compassion and service in your own homes
Next, extended family, visiting teaching families, ward family
We don't need to handle helping others on our own...ward sisters
Relief Society is a circle of love 
Relief Society is a protective wall

A Worldwide Sisterhood of Love

"This great circle of sisters will be a protection for each of you and for your families.  The Relief Society might be likened to a refuge--the place of safety and protection--the sanctuary of ancient times. You will be safe within it. It encircles each sister like a protecting wall."
President Boyd K. Packer

Sharing of experiences of service by sisters

Standing as a witness...a form of service
