Re: Dance of the Dissident Daughter - Sue Monk Kidd

I also liked the book The Shack and it deals with God, or Papa as character in the novel calls Him, coming in the form of a black woman.

Re: Is religion-induced fear integral to Mormonism?

i do think many of the church's teachings are fear based, but the the gospel's message is one of hope and love....sometimes we have to go elsewhere to get the message of Christ because the fear based thinking in the church is so strong or tends to dominate...that has been my experience. So in answer...

Re: Stay LDS or Change LDS???

By staying, and being a part of it, I think in a small way I will be a part of change. I don't really have expectations or time tables.

Re: Book of Moses and Abraham

spacious maze asked: Are the books of Moses and Abraham being taught as truth? Are they included in lessons, missionary discussions, mormon views? Mentioned or taught at all? Or has the church sidelined and watered-down the importance of the Pearl of Great Price entirely, eventually leaving it behin...
