Not sure if this is church wide. I suspect it is. But all high councilmen had task of passing on this message about bearing testimonies. You are to make them short. You are to say you know 1. Gospel is true 2. Church is true 3. Russ is prophet 4. Book of Mormon is true 5 Jesus is the Christ. Then say amen, sit down. No further explanations are to be given. No stories. No scripture readings etc. You are not required to explain how you know these things are true.
They quoted a number of recent GA talks where they say that is all that is required when bearing your testimonies. I heard this same message in two wards by two different high councilmen plus last Sunday at a singles Fireside. Plus several over pulpit talks plus a priesthood lesson. Telling how you know is out.
Can we all say this is Russ and Wendy and the top boys controlling the message. What I find interesting is out SP is a lawyer.
Anyone in other stakes getting same type of message. Thanks.
