Apostle Calls for Uplifting Social Media Messages to Sweep the Earth

Elder Bednar also announces new Church feature film, 'Meet the Mormons'

Elder David A. Bednar, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, called for Mormons to use social media to “sweep the earth” with authentic and uplifting messages.

His message, given Tuesday during a Brigham Young University Education Week devotional in Provo, Utah, focused on the power of the Internet and particularly social media to communicate truth. Elder Bednar called our time a “unique season in the history of the world,” in which we are blessed with “a miraculous progression of innovations and inventions that have enabled and accelerated the work of salvation.”
