And the new President is…

There is so much focus on the US Presidential election right now that the world has not taken much notice of the calling of a new worldwide president. Since I have, in previous blogs, spoken plenty on the need for a prophet in our day, I just wanted to mention that it was announced a few days ago by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that Thomas S Monson has succeeded the late Gordon B Hinckley as the new president of the 13-million-member faith, with Henry B Eyring and Dieter F Uchtdorf as his two counselors. Read the whole story here.

I sincerely pray that God’s blessings and inspiration will be with these men, whom I admire very much. I have followed their lives closely, and I see three persons with humble hearts, willing do whatever it takes to serve the Lord by serving mankind. This is what they have dedicated their lives to doing – 24/7. I encourage all of you to listen to their counsel. They won’t lead you astray. I promise. And as I mentioned before, a good way to see if someone is really speaking for God, you just have to test their words. Then you’ll know.

I don’t want to give a long sermon again, but I just want to add, shortly, how grateful I am to belong to a Church where there can never be any bickering or contention as to who will be the next leader of Church. There is a set pattern that eliminates “any trace of internal lobbying for position or rank”. The Church has a system that simply does not encourage “personal aspiration for leadership”.

God bless…
