New Sunday Worship

I know I have been most crabby here recently. However, I do still look for good. The following is a huge good in my opinion. It's a bit of a read but I couldn't say it better than it is. Read it when you have time. It's about New Sacrament Meeting Guidelines. https://bycommonconsent.com/2018/10/15/t...

Re: I May Throw Up...

The request didn't have to be made at all. Just throwing that out there as a viable option.
Amen.

Re: I May Throw Up...

I have a huge problem with a social media fast requested exclusively of women. Thing is, he could have chosen to make it an adult request, but he didn't. The excuse that the men didn't get it because there was no Priesthood meeting is bunk. He spoke at every session. The request should have been ma...

Re: GBH: Mormon Should Mean “More Good”

The attached are my comments from the thread we started a couple months ago on this. It get's better. Brother Joseph, the first Mormon Prophet, said the following, To the Editor of the Times & Seasons: Sir - Through the medium of your paper, I wish to correct an error among men that profess to be le...

Re: Two Hour Church

I am an extrovert. I enjoyed 2nd hour socializing very much. I will miss the excuse of it. I have worked hard to see positives during lessons. I can't blame the teachers, too much. How many ways can you slice someone's talk and re-serve it as new and fresh? or spend the 30th year in a row making the...

Re: Two Hour Church

My area is more upper middle class, I think at first there maybe an increase. Just like with changing the missionary age, but over time I think it will drop. That said, I think it would have dropped anyway. People have churched for a very long time, it isn't what it used to be. We don't socialize on...

Re: I May Throw Up...

am not sure exactly the context of how it was said but DW reported that President Oaks listed people getting married later as if it was a bad thing. This was concerning to her because we know of a number of couples that got married young and it did not quite end well. DW and I married at the ripe o...

I May Throw Up...

It's a line from one of my favorite movies, Some Like It Hot . I am borrowing it tonight because I am weirded out by all my LDS gal-pals who are announcing their "Social Media" fasts. My first gripe is that we weren't told to do it now. It had no time limit. Second gripe - we were instructed to keep...

Re: Elder Uchtdorf as Medicine for Elder Oaks

An extended family member knows one of the speakers' sisters who has a homosexual child Ironically, Elder Oaks has a talented grandson who is gay. No surprise, they are estranged. Finally, Elder Packer got hyper-focused on sex the last few years of his life. It became an obsession, and it turned a ...

Re: PR Misdirection

I hear you. I use the PRethren as my name for them. I can't always tell which side is driving the program. The present overuse of "revelation" just adds to the distrust. Is every thought revelation? The November Policy shed particular light on this for me. Originally it was a procedural hand book de...
