“Counseled by the elders of the church at the conferences.”
56 And let the work of the gathering be not in haste, nor by flight; but let it be done as it shall be counseled by the elders of the church at the conferences, according to the knowledge which they receive from time to time.
President David O. McKay said:
“[Conferences are held] to worship the Lord in sincerity and reverence, and to give and to receive encouragement, exhortation, and instruction.”
