President Nelson addresses using chair during conference talk
SALT LAKE CITY — President Russell M. Nelson took to social media after Latter-day Saints noticed he used a chair to deliver his remarks during the Saturday morning session of the 192nd Semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
“Some noticed that I sat on a chair to deliver my message this morning,” President Nelson said on his Twitter account. “What a help that was! The other day it occurred to me that I have been alive during nearly half of the number of years since The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized in 1830.”
President Nelson became the oldest Church president in June and celebrated his 98th birthday on Sept. 9. Past speakers, including the late President Boyd K. Packer, used chairs while giving general conference addresses.
Some of you may gave noticed the pause as a security guard pulled out Pres. Nelson’s chair.

I may not ski black diamond runs anymore, but whether standing or seated, I delight in speaking and hearing words of truth. And this weekend will be filled with them. I hope you will join me in savoring the beautiful messages that still lie ahead.
