In the afternoon, Elder Kopischke addressed a special 5 Stake Ward/Stake Council meeting. At the beginning of the meeting, he asked the 5 stake presidents and Pres. Cusick for one statement of their concerns about ward councils. He then started addressing each one, but the discussion blurred between them all. He discussed how everyone in ward council should participate, especially the sisters. Ward councils should focus on individuals and families. He said that we should not attempt to talk about everyone and everything at each ward council. We should be united and noted that it is "more important to be united than to be right." Again, he emphasized that we should focus on families and work toward bringing all of the family members into the Church. It was an excellent meeting.
