They already are running network TV commercials for conference in my area. Gaaah!
They won't touch the extreme views in their culture. They will discuss "be kind" which appears to be the only response I've seen to how uncivil many people have become. They might go so far as to tell people to read only faith promoting books, since the book banning is fueling that view.

The criteria for being classified as 'active' aren't well known- understood, but they still w/don't mention numbers (% or real) of how many members are 'active' or not, what % are tithe payers, or attend temple...
Your testimony of the veracity of The Book of Mormon is your most prized possession, for it is a literal translation from gold plates written in ancient reformed Egyptian and stands as the KEYSTONE of our religion. Either our claims are true or they are not.
They won't say >>>
We invite all members to strengthen your personal testimonies of the Book of Mormon, the KEYSTONE of our religion, and learn why "Adieu" is included in the text for it will reveal the truthfulness of this work. Either our claims are true or they are not.
"Adieu" may be English, but it isn't King James English. I am also pretty sure that the word never appears in contemporary works by Marlowe and Shakespeare. So it definitely stands out in the BoM context. "Farewell" or a number of other words would have made more stylistic sense.
They will mention to go on a mission. They will not mention how many missionaries come home early from a mission due to depression. Pay tithing. Probably more temples will be announced. A church who has over 100 billion can do so much more to help it's members and communities. Yes the lds church donated 1 million dollars to the wildfire in Maui not too long ago.
