Day of rest. Went to church. The Sacrament meeting talks were on the LDS pioneers. Both were good, but for some reason I was too tired during the first, and learned by means of Lehi's dream. Maybe I know that I'll be running the marathon on Tuesday, so my body is proactively regenerating. This rest did, however, give me energy for the second talk and I absorbed it quite well. Then I went to the new member class where the lesson was on Adam and Eve. I ended up teaching the second half of it because the regular teacher got an emergency work call and could teach only the first part. After that we had a lesson in the Elders' Quorum on Elder Halstrom's talk on the difference between activity in the Church and activity in the Gospel. This was one of my favorite General Conference talks. I liked how he emphasized that the purpose of having the Church to begin with is to help us develop an active knowledge and a testimony of Jesus Christ, to make us different people who act according to His teachings instinctively. It is possible to go to church every Sunday, but still make very little progress in achieving that change. Thus it is important to examine yourself regularly and make sure that you are not getting lost in the multitude of routines without developing a testimony of Christ.
