Dieter F. Uchtdorf is fast turning into one of my favourites. His talk was centred on 'hope', 'faith' and 'charity' and how the three complement each other and bring happiness.
For me, the most meaningful thing he said was, "If only we could glimpse for a moment what our Heavenly Father has in store for us not only in the next life but in this, our hope would be unshakeable and despair would never overcome us."
I love this perspective and I am going to try to be more optimistic in this pessimistic world. After all, there is really only one person in charge and He is mindful of each individual He created. Believe it or not.
One thing that truly endeared me to Pres. Uchtdorf was when he finished his talk with, "Never give in, never surrender." He said this with great empathy but this is like the famous line ("Never give up, never surrender".) that Tim Allen utters in the movie 'Galaxy Quest', which happens to be my favourite sci-fi parody. So of course this catapulted me into the movie and I was right there with Tim Allen trying to kill the Rock Monster. ("It's a rock! It doesn't have any vulnerable spots!")
I didn't know Pres. Uchtdorf was a Trekky.
