Re: I took a big step on Sunday and it went good

Wow! It sounds like things went remarkably well. I'm happy you have the bishop you do. I've had bishops like that before but I've also had bishops who would probably have instigated a church court the minute I walked out of their office. I bet it felt good to just get all of that stuff off your ches...

Re: How to respond to missionaries

Oh, dear, maybe I'm not communicating as well as I thought I was! :oops: I did not end up saying that in my text to the missionaries. No, I totally got that. There was no misunderstanding as to what you actually said. I just didn't know you felt that way. I figured most posters on StayLDS were here...

Re: How to respond to missionaries

I don't really have many issues with doctrine per se (at least what I consider doctrine) my issues are more with church culture and policy.... "There are some cultural aspects of the church that trouble me and I disagree with some policies, such as the treatment of LGBTQ people." I didn't realize t...

Re: Why do you go?

Before I started serving at the Salt Lake Metro Jail, I went to church to receive the sacrament. Period.

Re: The Mormon Word

One of the things that upsets me these days is so much attention is paid to words, and usually to derive offense from where none is meant! Since the word "Mormon" was nixed (except in ref to the BoM), I notice some LDS get annoyed about the use of Mormon. It never bothers me, to be honest, and I do...

Re: Is StayLDS at its end of life?

I certainly hope it's not at its end of life. I know I'm not a super frequent poster, but I check in at least once a week. I'll tell you what my own situation is. I have no idea how similar it is to anyone else's. In the past, when I've just about had it with certain elements in the Church, I have k...

Re: General Conference this weekend

Well, Dallin Oaks' talk was about standing against racism and hatred. Not once did he mention the "evils" of same-sex attraction. To me, that was about as monumental as anything else that might happen this weekend. I almost left the room when he started to speak, but I'm VERY glad I stayed and liste...

I feel god's forgiveness when I reach the point where I can forgive myself.
