Re: My Trip to Salt Lake City -- impressions

My main comment is that I wish I'd had a chance to meet you when you were here. I would have loved to have that opportunity. It's not often I get to talk to an unorthodox Mormon in real life. :D So here's a shout-out to any of the rest of you who might find yourself in Salt Lake City. Let me know th...

Re: I'm going to jail!

I've got to ask the obvious... do you get any protection from any potential trouble? We're in a small room with a glass wall that is adjacent to a much larger room where there are guards and cameras into all of the cells and into the room we're using. Good on you though. I think these guys do need ...

Excellent. I want to hear more, please.
And you undoubtedly will -- probably every Sunday. I haven't been this excited about a calling in... oh, about 70 years.

Re: I'm going to jail!

Today was our first Sunday in jail. It was an absolutely marvelous experience from beginning to end. We shadowed another man and will continue to do so for a couple more weeks. The lesson (taught twice, back to back to different groups of prisoners) was on the Plan of Salvation. I was really touched...

Re: I'm going to jail!

That really sounds interesting. I have a lot of questions. - do you get any training? - it sounds like you will have structured presentation or class. Where do the lessons come from? - can you talk or council inmates one on one? - Are they limited to nonviolent inmates? - have you been able to talk...

I'm going to jail!

My husband and I just got called to serve in the Metropolitan First Branch, which is a very politically correct way to say "the Salt Lake County Jail." I've never been one to accept a calling just because I feel like it's got to be inspired. I've declined several callings in the past and haven't act...

Re: President for a day

It was not only Lee that was opposed, there were several others among that staunch conservative group of apostles at the time (including McConkie and Fielding Smith). There's some kind of interesting church politics that went on during the DOM administration and shortly thereafter that involved J. ...

Re: President for a day

It is not beyond the realm of possibility that I might be getting hoodwinked, but I honestly believe those few who have talked about it when they say that they do have vigorous discussions in those meetings and that they don't do anything until unanimity is reached (which Nelson himself as an apost...

Re: President for a day

Wow! Such excellent ideas (a few I'd already thought of and a few others that had never crossed my mind)! I know most of these have already been mentioned but I'll just give my "Amen" to them and add a few additional ones of my own... 1. Get rid of the Word of Wisdom as a "commandment" because God n...
