Re: Teaching Pathways Class

I thought the church had deleted the pathways program -- is that not true?

Re: New hymnal is in the works! Some major, wonderful changes.

As a musician, I welcome this. I was going to hold a teachers council where I model an entire lesson done in song and instrumental music with me on my upright bass and a piano player. But I figured I'd get kicked out if I did that. I would like to suggest that they get contemporary and past LDS arti...

Re: When Part of You Has Left the Church... BCC Article

The value of this article for me is found in classifying members that have partly left the church, but is still active in it. The rest of her comments sort of faded into ideas I no longer remember after reading them. But her means of classifying members as partly gone ,but still serving, resonates. ...

Re: Elizabeth Smart: Forgiveness is another word for self-love

Powerful thought that forgiveness of others is an act of self-love. Never thought of that. It's a higher form of self-love than the self-love based on self-importance or offence at being treated a certain way. That too is self-love, but it can inspire bitterness rather than inner peace. Powerful tho...

Does Programmed Service Build Community?

I have a question -- we know that our RS has a program where if someone is sick, the RS takes meals over to the family who is experiencing the sickness or other trial. It's a way of showing you care. But if everyone (or most people) get this kind of service, does this really build community? To me, ...

Re: Interesting Convo at church

I agree. I have taken a leadership position in my work, and its kind of drugerous at times -- and then I go back to my non-profit leadership and I'm pulling all nighters to meet self-imposed deadlines for no pay at all. It goes to show how much FUN a person is missing if they limit themselves only t...

Re: President Oaks and the Priesthood Restriction

I like the idea that the church got justice for our past actions. For years, it bothered me that we had the blights of plural marriage, blacks and the priesthood, mountain meadows etcetera on our history. It was an impediment to progress. Now, based on posts here, I see it as a form of natural disci...

Two Hour Church -- Rumor or Work in Process?

OK, now I'm hearing excitement about 2 hour church from active people in my area. This has always been a wish on StayLDS where many of us find the experience generally unstimulating and repetitive. But now, to hear active people talking about it on social media and face to face has me wondering. Is ...
