Re: Agile Religion

Sorry, I've not been able to get back on this for a few days. I hope I didn't come off as condescending in my prior post. For me personally, I don't see the LDS Church as a top-down patriarchy ever being anything but what it is, so for me, the agile approach is something that I can use as a means fo...

Re: Agile Religion

The is that all of the items can have importance, including ritual, but we value the left more than the right.

Agile Religion

I am involved in Information Technology by trade. A few years ago, Agile Software Development took over the industry by storm. It blew apart entrenched and unproductive practices, by fundamentally shifting (not replacing) value systems. Agile has grown beyond software into other areas such as manufa...

Re: I believe the church will soon change

I would love to be wrong and to be more optimistic, but I don't think substantial changes are coming in the near to mid-term future. My reasons: 1) Top-down power structure 2) Binary, non-nuanced mindset and narratives 3) Cumulative, case-law kind of truth model; what each prophet and GA said was tr...

Re: Transparency -- positives and negatives

I kind of feel like things are starting to unravel for the LDS church, regardless of the approach they take.

Re: Church and changing the relationship with scouting ..

If the church decides to move away from Scouting, and has to re-think the YM program then, I think it's a perfect juncture to introduce parity in to the Young Women's program: 1) Financial parity. There should be a lot of money freeing up. 2) Adventure parity (girl's should have high-adventure and n...

Re: Help!!

Thanks for the comments all. And I apologize for my vehemence. I totally think that my daughter is going to come out of this great and that she is positioned to be a strong and independent thinker. I also think that we will continue to have a great relationship with her and to be tolerant and suppor...

Thanks for all the advice. You have left some very good points on this post. I can see however, that I maybe should have given more background: 1) We are lifetime, 5-generation Wasatch Front members. I've been in many callings, ward mission leader, EQ, bishopric member, as has my wife (RS/YW, etc). ...

Help!!

Any ideas on how to quell the rage that my wife and I will not be able to attend the temple wedding of our daughter, you know, the one my wife gave birth to and we raised through thick and thin and now the church steals away from us? Also, the accompanying rage that occurs when there is no mechanism...
