This weekend is the 188th Semiannual General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You might not expect it from a 94-year-old, but Church President Russell M. Nelson has been shaking things up. There have been a lot of rumors about what to expect, and at least one came to fruition with the announcement that Sunday services would be shortened by an hour in favor of more home study. So Monday, we’re gathering a panel of experts to explain what did happen and what it all means.
