President Russell M. Nelson and Challenges for the LDS Church

Jan 17, 2018

Wednesday, we’re talking about new LDS Church President Russell M. Nelson, other changes in the First Presidency, and how the Church may meet the challenges of a global faith in the 21st century.

Tuesday morning, the LDS Church announced the new leader of the faith. It was no surprise that Russell M. Nelson was called; there’s a clear succession plan when a president dies. It was a surprise though that he replaced the popular leader Dieter F. Uchtdorf as a counselor in the First Presidency, the highest governing body of the Church. So Wednesday, we’re talking about Nelson, the “new” face Dallin H. Oaks, and how they may meet the challenges of a global faith in the 21st century.

We want to hear from you. What do you see as the social, political, and faith challenges facing the LDS Church? What are you hoping to hear from Church leadership? Send an email to radiowest@kuer.org or comment below.
