LDS (“Mormon”) Apostle of Jesus Christ Addresses Young Adults Worldwide

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is under the direct divine administration of the Lord Jesus Christ, who revealed its name, and facilitated the restoration of His pure, undiluted doctrines and organization as existed at the time of His ministry. What a glorious message to the world!

One of the modern-day twelve apostles, Boyd K. Packer, of The Church of Jesus Christ (sometimes mistakenly referred to as The Mormon Church by the media or those of other faiths who aren’t familiar with the full name), will address the young adults of the Church and any interested friends of other faiths in a devotional address on November 6, 2011, at 6:00 P.M. MST.
2011 November Educational and Spiritual Devotional for Young Adults

The one-hour broadcast will originate from the Brigham Young University (BYU) campus in Provo, Utah. The Church of Jesus Christ’s satellite system will subsequently rebroadcast the devotional to many areas of the world.

According to LDS/Mormon News source, the Newsroom of The Church of Jesus Christ, there are several ways to watch and listen:

This broadcast will be available in English on Mormon Channel HD Radio and the following BYU Broadcasting services: BYU Television (BYUtv), BYU Radio, KBYU‑TV (Eleven), and KBYU‑FM Radio (Classical 89). It will be available in Spanish and Portuguese on BYU Television International.

Live audio and video of the Latter-day Saint (“Mormon”) broadcast will be available online at 6:00 p.m. mountain standard time at cesdevotionals.lds.org. An audio-only live broadcast can be accessed at mormonchannel.org at the same time.  [“CES” is an acronym for the Church Educational System which provides continuous spiritual and doctrinal instruction to young adults as they transition through school, marriage, and life.  Mormons believe highly in educating minds, hearts, and hands to be of service in families, communities, and the world.)

Within three weeks of the apostle’s address and this spiritual devotional event, audio and video will be archived online at cesdevotionals.lds.org in more than two dozen languages.

Check local program listings for availability in your area, or visit broadcastinfo.lds.org, mormonchannel.org, or byubroadcasting.org for more broadcast information.

Telling our stories through New Media subject of new BYU class

A new class at BYU is studying storytelling through the New Media. This class, Theater and Media Art (TMA) 315r, studies the use of YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and other “Web 2.0″ tools for sharing our stories, including our faith as Latter-day Saints.

The students created two videos, below, to explain. This quote from student Taylor Rose summarizes it well:

Our audience isn’t just this little Provo bubble any more. We actually have the whole world as our audience. People from anywhere can see the content we are creating and we can create something people will be interested in everywhere…. We can tell who we are. We can tell our story.

We can invite them into our lives, show them how we view things, and show them how we make decisions. I think this is an excellent opportunity to show people who we really are.
