The BYU campus community gather in the Marriott Center as Elder David A. Bednar speaks on finding true joy at Tuesday’s BYU devotional
A day after a tragic incident at BYU, the campus community gathered to hear words of comfort and hope. "Such events try our hearts and stretch our souls," said President Kevin J Worthen. "They should also cause us to be more aware of, and more caring for, the well-being of every individual in our community." In Elder David A. Bednar's address, he shared that he had been thinking about and praying for everyone at BYU. He then spoke on service and finding the eternal source of true joy, Jesus Christ. Read a devotional summary, watch a highlight on service, or stream the full devotional.
