Re: Are relationships really capable of lasting forever?

Assigned relationship building has its limits. The fact that most of the HT relationships stop after reassignments are made is evidence of this. And yet there are families and individuals who have found lasting friendships with people through the program. Is it a high margin? No. But it has put unl...

Re: Relief Society Lesson

I remember loving this talk during GC. Elder McKay's Dad, was my husband's Mission President. My husband loved him. I got to meet him one time. He was warm, jovial, charismatic, and liberal. To me the son seems to follow the same scenario. Extra bonus points for remembering the nursery snack. I love...

Re: Are relationships really capable of lasting forever?

How so? I would have thought that with all the different ways we have to communicate -- email,phone, face-timing, facebook etcetera, that it would be easier than in the past. My take... it's all about where our heart is. By "our" I mean mine to others and others to mine. When people are invested, t...

Re: Jana Reiss' - Millenials/Church Changes

The thing I envy most about Millennial's is their ability to be unfazed. I love the freedom of guilt they have. I can see concern for that freedom but I think more of them aren't as burdened as post war people are.

Re: Faith Crises and Grace

for the rest of us it just doesn't work that way. And every time it gets sold like that, a mass set of people get thrown under the bus. I appreciate that the church is allowing the acknowledgment of faith crisis' - like many things - the depth and severity of crisis' is ranging. I lived through a m...

Re: Jana Reiss' - Millenials/Church Changes

but they are a clear signal that we come from very different eras I believe this is the battle front in many areas of life. Not just religion. Millennials have an entire construct that many of us can't fathom. The separate generations really do have total different frames of reference. This isn't a...

Re: Faith Crises and Grace

Just so Roy doesn't look like the only one answering. ;). I remember seeing this video in Sunday School.While I watched I remembered a decade or so earlier listening to Michael McLean speak about his depression at a Time Out for Women's Event.

Re: I need to come clean

I don't know your Bishop or ward. I would suggest starting with the Gospel Topic Essays. It's safe for both parties. Tread in with that. Brush up on your reading of them. Then share them as a source of concern. You don't have to go beyond that. As callings go, there are plenty of people who don't ha...

Re: WOW Seminary Manual

I think like many things it is in for an overhaul in the near future. The leaders recognize it is out of place in our world and does not fit the mindset of the masses. I also think being a global church with totally different eating experiences, refrigeration, water, poverty are going to effect it....
