SHARE CHURCH NEWS: ABOUT THE COVER

Having served in the highest councils of the Church and United States government, President Ezra Taft Benson, 13th president of the Church, died May 30 at age 94.

As one of his counselors in the First Presidency remarked recently, President Benson's life was characterized by constancy. This issue is devoted to a retrospective on that life. The quotation on the cover, from April conference of 1986, exemplifies the prophet's love for the membership of the Church and for all humankind.
