The Mother-load of great quotes

I've seen this site before, probably because it was referenced here at StayLDS. But it is well worth repeating. Enjoy: http://ldsthoughtfulquotes.blogspot.co.uk/ As a young missionary 50+ years ago, I stumbled across some of these quotes. They made me proud to be a Mormon. But about the same time, t...

Re: A Time for Thanksgiving

I love this thread, for the warm feeling in my heart, listening to y'all sharing your feelings about your lives. Since most if not all in this forums are having painful FC. I believe it is very important that no matter what challenges we face, it is important to recognize the good things in your lif...

Re: Same sex marriage considered apostasy

It's no longer just rumor. Elder Todd Christopherson explains the Q15's thinking about the policy decision and how that is, in his view, an expression of divine principles and doctrine. Read'em and weep, or shout for joy if so inclined., http://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/handbook-changes-same-se...

Re: A Terrific Article about Pornography

I agree Ray's article is terrific.

Coincidentally I found in my email box an article published by BYU. It's not as good as Ray's, but it is more rational than most church stuff. It can be found here

Lesson #11 Follow the Living Prophet (revision 2)

Following is the final version of Lesson # 11 using Pres' Benson's 14 Fundamentals talk at BYU for its material. IMO the lesson was nothing more than restating the title of the lesson in a variety of ways, but made no attempt to inform or instruct the reader beyond "just obey." I feel it had many lo...

Re: Ideas for "meaty" classes/discussion groups at church

Many years ago, while living in SLC, I was a member of a discussion group which met monthly in different members’ homes. SLC had a good number of thoughtful people who our well-connected group could call on for a presentation. The discussions were often heterodox though always respectful, like StayL...

Re: Eternal Progression as a Life Motto

My wife and I have a little phrase that we say to one another, that goes along with this discussion: "I love you more than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow." It has helped grease the wheels of inevitable ups and downs for 25 years and counting. :smile:

Re: Question about prophetic fallibility

Re: Question about prophetic fallibility Postby bridget_night » 2015 May 05, 17:02 The problem I have is that some of the stuff Joseph Smith, Brigham Young and other prophets did, we would get excommunicated for, and they did not.
