Re: Is It Arrogant to Pray?

Was watching Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee this morning on Netflix. It was the episode where Jerry Seinfeld spends the morning with Ricky Gervais. The topic of religion came up in a roundabout way and Ricky started telling Jerry that he doesn't ever pray. He said that it makes him feel arrogant....

Re: I'm going to jail!

I can't help but think of Matt 25:36 ...I was in prison and ye came unto me. I always wondered how a person could do this or have the opportunity to do it. I'm glad the church has a program like this. If it doesn't help the inmate it's nice to know it's helping you. Please continue to report back. ...

Re: Are we the church of the WoW?

My ward isn't. We have members who smoke, including one guy who helps with the sacrament. We occasionally get people who come in smelling of drink too.

The WoW is one of the best life choices I've made. If I ever go inactive again, or leave I will still try to keep it

Re: Potential predator in primary

I tried to look at this scenario in the most positive light possible, and I came to the conclusion that even if their motives were pure, then they have issues with boundaries.
