“The road ahead will always be bumpy; the destination will be serene and secure,” said President Russell M. Nelson
Six months after the COVID-19 pandemic limited religious observance globally, the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints reaffirmed there is and has always been one answer to conflict — faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
“The road ahead will always be bumpy; the destination will be serene and secure,” said President Russell M. Nelson.
Capping a series of Church News articles on the COVID-19 pandemic, President Nelson and his counselors in the First Presidency — President Dallin H. Oaks and President Henry B. Eyring — reflected on the pandemic that caused illness and death, stifled economies, altered missionary assignments, closed schools, and curtailed Church meetings and daily routines across the globe.
“What I feel about the pandemic is sorrow,” said President Nelson, speaking of those worldwide who have faced — and continue to face — dire circumstances or disappointment.
Then he added: “I’ve learned that even through clouds of sorrow, there can be silver linings found.”
