As Actors and Spectators
Brothers and sisters, what a pleasure it is for Sister Kimber and I to be with you today, to be gathered together in this historic hall, but most importantly, to be with you. I have a great deal of confidence that when Abraham had his vision of the pre-earth life and he saw many of the noble and great ones [i], he saw your faces. I am confident in that because I have seen your actions and taken note of your behavior. I also know that you have been reserved to come forth in the final dispensation of the fullness of times, where you would need to counteract and fight against the evil that surrounds us. And I am most grateful to be with you today. As I look at your smiling faces and know of your good countenances, I feel that I am among friends, and for that I thank you.
