Re: TR Interview Grilling

I'm pretty much in this spot too. I don't need a TR just to "prove my worthiness" to anyone, including myself. I feel very comfortable answering the questions with my own nuance, and I have always seen them as more reflective in nature and not measures of perfection. I really love this sentiment! I...

Re: New hymnal is in the works! Some major, wonderful changes.

I like that song, too, and didn't think of it during my submission. I think you can submit more than once, though. And good point about the key - I might like Love at Home better in a different key. They'd probably have to change the words to that one before I'd like it. ;) It's just way, way too c...

Re: New hymnal is in the works! Some major, wonderful changes.

I submitted one suggestion, which I doubt will be taken, but whatever... I absolutely love "Beautiful Savior" and the harmony in it just takes my breath away.

I'd actually like it if they changed the key for a lot of them so I could actually sing them.

Re: New hymnal is in the works! Some major, wonderful changes.

The church is seeking input, including original songs. I have submitted the following, though it is to a common tune (as they used to do). (sung to "If You Could Hie to Kolob"): If you could high five Dieter, with a twinkling in his eye, He'd then continue talking 'bout when he used to fly, Do you ...

Re: Never sure when to give kudos and when not to!

I know what you mean, SD. The Church made a huge to-do last month over the 40th anniversary of the ban against Black men holding the priesthood. They had a big program in the Conference Center with the Tab Choir and a number of well-known Latter-day Saints (like Alex Boye) participating. I can remem...

Re: Same-Sex Families Being Added to the LDS Church's Family Search Database

I think that great news! Unfortunately, one of the comments from the website said that recording same-sex marriages isn't the same as condoning them. Well, I still think that great news! :thumbup: In the long run, I don't think it's so much a matter of what the Church condones; God's judgment isn't...

And just think, that's 48 more hours per year you can work on family history, ministering and/or reading the Book of Mormon. ;)
Oh, yeah! That's just what I was thinking. :lol:

Re: Same-Sex Families Being Added to the LDS Church's Family Search Database

I just saw this news, too, and I am elated. Yeah, acknowledging that they exist does not mean condoning them, but it's still huge. It's saying, "These are families!" It's moving forward and that's definitely better than the alternative.

Re: Two Hour Church -- Rumor or Work in Process?

That would be really cool! That way I'd only have to skip one hour of church each week instead of two! :D

Re: What does the church have to offer you?

Sitting through boring lessons and meetings can wear on you. There are plenty of reasons to endure and keep going to church. But... I've been thinking...what is it that church really has to offer? What's the purpose of church? Actually, the Church doesn't offer me much these days, but it was throug...
