Re: Finally saying hi

Helloe TGT - I like the fact you still find it OK to hold a TR. Once you fall off that wagon things get way more complicated. If you can keep being an outward member of the community, even though inwardly you are a grey thinker, then you've solved a lot of community problems right there. I envy you!

Re: Tom Christofferson on the policy change and Easter

A nice article I enjoyed on Deseret News today. It was on the landing page, it has since been moved to the opinion section. I am grateful that removing the earlier policy reflects, to me, a continued wrestling by church leaders with the many unanswered questions affecting our lesbian, gay, bisexual...

Re: My Best & Worst List

Best 1. Generally the people are nice people. 2. Good place to hob nob with other youth with generally good character; youth focus. 3. Provides a community no matter where you go -- at least, on the surface. 4. For some, it provides simple boxes to check so your chances of a good life after death ar...

Re: Conference Favorite - Not Favorite

Didn't watch it enough to have an opinion, and don't have plans to.

Re: Old Wounds

Yes, treat them with respect. Do not burn bridges, sever relationships, or cause family feuds. Nor do you need to stay in a position to take abuse. Boundaries are the order of the day. Right. When it comes to the church, recognize that you are working with an organization that has many merits, but ...

Re: Should I feel guilty?

In Priesthood today, we had a lesson that centered on a talk from the last General Conference. (It doesn't matter which talk it was.) On of the quotes used in the lesson from David O McKay. You all know what it is. Say it along with me..."No other success compensates for failure in the home." I wou...

Re: Old Wounds

This weekend has been so hard for me. I feel like the reversal of the policy of exclusion, has opened wounds I was healing. I’m so angry that, just like that, everyone can feel great again because it was reversed. I’m reeling. What of the people who lost their lives? What of the people who lost the...

Re: Your Answer May Come Right Away...

Maybe it would be helpful for her to pray to get back together with this old boyfriend and for God to respond with an emphatic, "NO!" :lol: God's no is often delivered by implication -- through decades of silence. Better off to think "If God wants him back in my life, I'll consider it then. For now...

Re: Your Answer May Come Right Away...

Answer to your prayers may come right away or a day later. Your answer may come not in the way you hope for, it may take a month or years, your answer may not come in this lifetime at all. Doesn't that just about cover all possibilities? This is what faith is? I can never get past this without disa...
