Home teacher shot

A home teacher in a ward in California has been shot - Fallon 3rd ward? Can't find out many details, but if you go on Leslie Beach's profile on Facebook there are some details. Her church was on lock down last night.

Re: Would you want to be a leader in the celestial kingdom?

We've had an excellent SP for ten years. He'll probably be gone next SC. He's very good but the poor man is tired. I know 10 years is standard for an SP but I think it's too long. Good in terms of providing continuity and stability. He's been up to the job, and it's only very recently started weari...

Re: The Prosperity Gospel

I do like what the church does in this area. It helps fund education and encourages self-reliance and freedom from debt. Like the old saying they try and teach folk how to catch fish, instead of just giving them some.

Re: Some Cognitive Dissonance Resolution

It is challenging at times to find something within the scriptures/lesson for class and life that I feel applies to me when I walk out that door and into my everyday life. However, there are some threads that have finally come together, so I am acting as that woman in the New Testament and calling ...

Re: Never sure when to give kudos and when not to!

Perhaps some of the reason for that is because when you are wandering in the desert, it isn't about how to wander more efficiently or more creatively. More creative ideas don't necessarily get you to the promised land. Not really in my case -- this was a problem throughout my TBM experience in the ...

Re: Never sure when to give kudos and when not to!

I would agree Heber and SD. And I think it's primarily due to correlation - the church's desire to have uniformity. The days of innovations that brought about such things as Primary and Sunday School are gone. I think the little box analogy is fitting. I think the church is not as correlated as bac...

Lol, the further I get into my career, the more I find this to be the case. How do humans survive?
I worked in a mail sorting office once. Total chaos. I was the only one there with a clue about local geography. Many of the others were foreigners. But it nearly all seems to get somewhere.

Re: Would you want to be a leader in the celestial kingdom?

FWIW a lot of corporate training is a joke and far worse than ours. Weekends where people go rafting or primal screaming and then get thrust back into the office and told to use those experiences somehow. A lot of jobs are essentially wasteful - books have been written on the subject. While the LDS ...
