Re: Do you participate in Symposia ......

You may be thinking of this question: Q7.

Re: Hypothetical situation

Let's say there was a talk General Conference about how you are either all in, or all out, that middle way Mormonism is not the way to go, and even implies that sites like these are not good for you spiritually... I suppose I would shrug my shoulders and mentally say, "Whatever." It is just an infl...

Re: Redesigning the Marriage Ceremony

either I need to keep tabs of it, or double and triple check he has it with us. Ha! I was assigned to bring the wedding license. Other than showing up it seemed like my only responsibility on the big day. My DW to be reminded me MANY times not to forget it. It did not seem to make sense to me. If e...

Re: "The CES Letter"

Roy do you think it's possible for JS to have been wrong about polygamy and still be a prophet? I suppose it depends on how you define prophet. The traditional Mormon definition is one who carries messages and makes announcements for God. I find it difficult to imagine that God would sit down with ...

People that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. There was a time when I misapplied this quote to the stages of grief.

Re: Free agency vs. free agency

"library resources are provided without charge, but are not without cost." Interesting concept. We can and should value things even if we did not have to work for them.
