‘Mormon Land’: What’s in a name? Will less church be more? Where were the women? Scholar, blogger discuss what did — and didn’t — happen at General Conference.

(Keith Johnson | Special to The Tribune) President Russell M. Nelson and his wife, Wendy, wave to the congregation at the conclusion of the 188th Semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Oct. 7, 2018, in Salt Lake City.

President Russell M. Nelson and his colleagues did it again. They pulled off a momentous General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

They shortened Sunday worship services. They announced a dozen new temples. They gave sermons that made news. They even have members and outsiders talking about how they are supposed to be referring to members and their faith.

For this week’s podcast, Patrick Mason, head of Mormon studies at Claremont Graduate University, and Emily Jensen, a Latter-day Saint writer, editor and blogger, discuss what did — and did not — happen at the two-day gathering and what its impact will be.
