Re: Ending Pageants

We went to the "City of Joseph" musical in Nauvoo for years with our kids, ward, and relatives. It was a great family time and we loved it. It strengthened everyone's testimony at the time as it was a feel good musical. Yes, there were always anit-Mormon groups handing out their tracts and I would a...

Re: SL Tribune: Church not handling sexual assault well for missionaries

I served in Austria in 1969-71. Looking back, I can see how dangerous a mission can be. Just tracking door to door, you never know who is behind a door and could attack you. We had guys in underwear greet us at the door who welcomed us to come in and 'teach them the gospel." We had mentally ill peop...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

Thanks Heber...I appreciate your perspective and the discussion here. One of my best girlfriends, who is strong lds replied to me about this today: I guess I took it as " from this day forward ".

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

“Anyone who comes to know the man Mormon, through the reading and pondering of his words, anyone who reads this precious trove of history which was assembled and preserved in large measure by him, will come to know that Mormon is not a word of disrepute, but that it represents the greatest good—that...

Hi Simon movie

Here is a review I did for this movie out right now. Our gay son really appreciated it and I tried to be diplomatic to our friends and family who we disagree with. Hope you all see it. We saw "Hi Simon" tonight and it was excellent! It portrayed so much of what we went through with our youngest son....

Re: Oct. 2017 General Conference

I also understand the impact on vulnerable people enough to know that hearing, "We will never accept you as you are," is brutal and soul-shattering. Thanks for saying this Ray. A man named, John Bonner posted this today on Mormons Building Bridges and said I could share it on any group. I think thi...
