Re: Peace without forgiveness

I no longer hold a grudge as I am thankful for the experience, and feel at peace about the experience. However, I don't feel the need to invest the time in forgiveness, as frankly, the person who did this to me isn't really worth the space in my mind -- she's not paying rent for it. To me, that's a...

Re: NAACP, the Church, and modern race relations

I am contemplating a temple recommend question that would ask if the individual harbors racist views or in any way discriminates against others by the color of their skin. Would such a question be effective at giving the church's stated opposition to racism some teeth? To me this is similar to the ...

Re: How will the Church change in light of the Covid Virus?

Here's the directive we just got from our ward. I've got to say that they've sure thought things through carefully and are being super diligent. 1. Sacrament meetings will recommence at the Chapel next Sunday, June 14th, at 10:00 a.m. The meetings will be 45 minutes long and consist of the Sacrament...

Re: We aren't the only ones who question.

Fascinating video. Obviously, even the strictest, most devout LDS families don't approach this level of isolation from the outside world, but it's truly sad how many people have actually been conditioned to be afraid to learn about their options. And this does, unfortunately, happen in LDS families....

Re: What happens when you are judged

According to Givens, prior to the 1950s and the influence of certain GAs it was commonly believed and taught in the church that progression in the afterlife was part of the plan. I also believe in that idea of eternal progression, and I do not discount the idea of multiple experiences on Earth. I a...

Re: What happens when you are judged

It used to really bother my mother that, although there is supposedly progression within the Celestial Kingdom, there is supposedly no progression between kingdoms. I've heard that all my life, but I am not aware of any scriptural support for the idea. Maybe a GA here and there has said something to...

Re: What constitutes a Fast on Good Friday?

I wish we could move away from temple recommends, worthiness interviews, and even the word "worthy" or any of its variants (qualified, drawing distinctions between worthiness and worth, etc.). I am so with you on that. It's one thing to try to be obedient, but to have everything we do measured to s...

Re: The Church & the Coronavirus

I can't even begin to imagine what you're going through, and don't even want to try to imagine what your daughter is going through. She'll be in my prayers. Just remember that the vast majority of people who were the sickest eventually did recover. This too shall pass.

Re: The Church & the Coronavirus

My overseas daughter has contracted Covid19. She was tested Sunday. Confirmed this morning. She is on house quarantine but on the list for ambulance pick up if the fever portion kicks in. The world is looking very different to me right now. Oh, no, mom3. I'm so, so sorry. Please keep us informed, a...
