  1. Through Minds Eyes Part 2 is almost complete. It will be released by the summer of this year. There are also plans to release commentaries on the Tertiary Canon along with the Epochal Doctrine and Covenants into book form by the end of the year.
  2. We join other leaders of other faiths on the meaning of family and marriage. We see marriage and family as one of the foundations of a good society. We should be doing all that we can to make sure that these institutions are protected from all forces that will compromise this.
  3. We need to understand the unique roles that women have in our life and in this philosophy. We also need to understand that women need to have as much respect as men do for the advancement of the Chancel and of the philosophy. For too long, women have been excluded from religious orders in the same capacity as men. This is something that we will continue to challenge and change.
  4. Human life is one of the most important gifts that we can have and one of the most important gifts that we can give. Do not let a human life go to waste no matter what position that we are in. We should be in a position to help and not to hurt others. This is something that, unfortunately, happens too often. This is a practice that should stop.
  5. We should always live our life with a foundation of love and not one of fear. Fear will only lead to hate and that will lead to anger all around. When we live in love, then anything is possible.
  6. It is great to have opinions. We all have our own opinions of everything. I implore all people to handle these differences with grace and civility. This is something that we should take with us all the days of our life. We are not perfect, but we can be made to be more perfect through a better understanding of others and their situations.
  7. The Angel Conference is in a few months and proposals are now out to add to the Continuing Continuum. There are also proposals to expand upon the theology of the angels along with giving some of them new cities to be guardians over.
  8. There have been three visions that have taken place since 2009. We are due this year to have the fourth vision. This will fundamentally change the face of the philosophy as we know it.
