Re: Worldwide Devotional

I swear that I have heard that story about the fisherman in the fishing boat before.

So happy to hear this! We talk about "Leadership Roulette" and that can be a real thing but also many of our leaders genuinely want to be helpful and to facilitate what they perceive as our spiritual growth.

Re: What should be ADDED to the WoW?

Yes, I was thinking of talking about underlying principles behind the advice. (one point that I took note of was the advice to remove your headphones when people are trying to include you in a discussion or activity) I think we are mostly on the same page here. :thumbup:

Re: What should be ADDED to the WoW?

Re: Changes and more changes

It used to annoy me how liberally the word "revelation" is used in the Church, but it's one of the cornerstones of the Church I've come to accept.
