The LDS Church is changing one of its annual traditions.
Every December for decades, the Utah-based faith has hosted a "First Presidency Christmas Devotional," with music from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and sermons by Mormonism’s top three male leaders.
This year, the name has been changed to the "Christmas Devotional," and speakers will include other LDS leaders besides church President Thomas S. Monson, and his counselors, Henry B. Eyring and Dieter F. Uchtdorf.
All the free tickets have already been distributed, but the devotional at 6 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8, will be broadcast live from the Conference Center in downtown Salt Lake City on lds.org.
