Jean A. Stevens became the first woman to offer a public prayer at the worldwide Mormon meeting.

Stevens, first counselor in the LDS Church's Primary general presidency, which oversees instruction of children under age 12 in the global faith, offered simple, unscripted words of gratitude and praise before millions of viewers Saturday.

Join us live at 12:30 p.m. for a Trib Talk video chat about this and other news out of the semiannual gathering of LDS faithful. The Salt Lake Tribune's Jennifer Napier-Pearce will lead the discussion in which religion reporter Peggy Fletcher Stack, a representative of Let Women Pray in General Conference and others will participate. The group will take questions during the chat, which will last about 45 minutes.
