Re: Conference Reactions

President Nelson's Sunday morning talk left me so depressed. After the reversal of the November, 2015 policy, I had felt so encouraged and uplifted by what I hoped to be a trend towards acceptance of people who don't fit the cookie cutter image TBM image. His talk was probably the closest thing I've...

Of all the moves yet by RMN this one was the riskiest. I wish all of us well.
Although he genuinely frustrates me at times, I've got to applaud him (as well as the rest of them) for this. I can't help but wonder, though, who actually spearheaded the effort for change.

I am stunned it happened so quickly.

I am grateful it happened so quickly.

Today, I am happy.
Yes! Yes! Yes! My sentiments exactly!

Re: Estimating the Chances - Women in the Priesthood

Best Chance (5%): DHO - He is a very legalistic thinker who may have talked himself into being able to say, "this is the way it's always been." Really? I'd have put him at 0% chance. No Chance (0%): MRB - Olde Ship Zion needs no repairs. I'd actually flip MRB and DHO. I've always kind of liked Ball...

Re: I'm going to jail!

Katzpur, PLEASE report back. You promised. There's not a great deal to report, actually. I am still absolutely loving every minute of it. It has literally been close to two decades since I have actually looked forward to Sundays. One of the other teachers at the jail said that Jesus Christ walks th...

Re: Why Can't the LDS Church be open like this?

I see the Catholic Church having many similarities with the LDS Church, but on a much grander scale. The Roman Catholic church's problems make those of the LDS look like a drop in the ocean. Right, but the Catholic Church's membership also makes the LDS Church's membership seem like a drop in the o...

One brother shared how he used boards with nails in them, and then withdrawn the nails, leaving behind wood with holes. I won't go any farther.
I wish you had -- and in class, too.

An underline to the phrase "not by commandment or constraint".
Amen!

Re: I'm going to jail!

An update... If anybody ever wants to release me from this calling, they're going to have to excommunicate me. :shock: We've been at the jail for six weeks now, shadowing other teachers for the first three weeks, for two weeks on our own, and today, Christmas caroling with other teachers. So far, it...
