This impression weighs upon me- that the church is in a position in it's growth and maturity when we are at last ready to move forward in a major way.
The basic decisions needed to move forward, as a people, must be made by the individual members of the church. The major strides which must be made by the Church will follow upon the major strides to be made by us as individuals. We have paused on some plateaus long enough. Let us resume our journey forward and upward." (Spencer W. Kimball, Conference Report, April 1979, p. 114.)
