SALT LAKE CITY — In a video posted on her Facebook page Monday, Sister Bonnie L. Oscarson, Young Women general president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a call for kindness and compassion toward those who may struggle or differ in opinion.

"Occasionally, some of our brothers and sisters may find themselves away from the fold because of personal choices. Without condoning those choices it is important to remember the Savior's message of leaving the ninety and nine safely in the fold and reaching out with love, with kindness and with compassion to the one. We can demonstrate that compassion by ensuring that our communications with one another are respectful and kind," Oscarson said.
