This is a departure from the old way of having a lesson selected at the Presidency’s discretion. If you aren’t careful, you might fall right back into that old way.

I invited Kurt Francom of Leading LDS to join us because he recently shared 6 Tips for First Sunday Council Meetings. We expound of each of his points and how you can incorporate them to lead an effective First Sunday Council Meeting. Kurt mentions a helpful resource called 7 Unbreakable Rules of Church Meetings.
