As many of you already know, President Hinckley passed away this evening. The hours since I received the news have been solemn, but not sad. President
I also don’t feel this is an end to an era. President Hinckley’s tenure has been an exciting time for the Church. We have seen amazing growth, the proliferation of temples, major changes to the way missionaries teach, and the creation of the Perpetual Education Fund. Yet, the vision was not his but the Lord’s, and it will be carried on unchanged by the next prophet. I am grateful to have known this magnificent man and witnessed this chapter of the Church’s history, but I also know the best days are still ahead of us.
