Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

I do get that. I have appreciated the times we have tried that. Where I get hung up is #1 - Why do we need to add the word "restored" or "restoration". Just give Church of Jesus Christ and leave it. #2 A name change is not a story change. I would have much preferred a "we are going to be abundantly...

PoX? I can tell what the subject is, but what are those letters supposed to stand for? :oops:

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

That being said I understand the desire to not be called Mormons, especially in contrast to polygamists. I had an argument with my very orthodox brother in law one time when I explained that the term "Mormons" is non-technical and a fairly general term for anyone who believes in the Book of Mormon,...

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:
