Re: 1 Nephi 11:22, 25 (Lehi's Dream Commentary - Love of God)

Roy your comment reminds of one of my favorite hymns - Come Thou Font of Every Blessing

Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it
Prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, oh, take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

Re: 1 Nephi 11:22, 25 (Lehi's Dream Commentary - Love of God)

There is much to like about your take on this. I struggle with Lehi's Dream a lot. One of my biggest struggles is how it doesn't leave room humanness. Viktor Frankl told a story about a physician he worked with who eventually became known as Doctor Death in the concentrations camps. The man was horr...

Shana Tova - Happy Rosh Hashanah

I love other religions holidays. Today begins Rosh Hashanah. My friend wrote the following. According to Judaism, the fact that Rosh Hashanah is the beginning of the year is to celebrate the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve. A key component of Rosh Hashanah preparation is to ask for forgi...

Re: Tom Christofferson's Story - Thoughts?

I actually think it's wise to let Tom do most of the talking because otherwise, it's letting the cishetero guy, the "ally," take the mic away from the person with the experience, and that's Tom. It's Tom's story to tell, not his brother's Hawk - I totally concur. I never desired an entire "Let me t...

Re: Mormonized - Sucks to be Me

f it was me, I would push for doing the conference thing at home in PJ's.

It just seems so much more like quality time when you can converse and watch the session with some sort of awesome food like waffles with ice cream and chocolate syrup.

Re: Tom Christofferson's Story - Thoughts?

Dark Jedi - I have actually wondered if he's not the "outsider" in his family The last few GC talks he's given I have wondered the same thing. Before this book and the articles supporting it, I had known that their Mom had been the guiding influence in the family's response. I wondered how she felt...

Re: Mormonized - Sucks to be Me

Oh - Just to see your names listed heals my soul. I know I shouldn't complain. I get "church" my way most of the time. I think I was broadsided by my sister's enthusiasm. Even when I was TBM - I often found ways to "forget" that the Women's Broadcast (RS or YW at the time) had happened. Then BYU TV ...
