Adam Miller - Recent Fireside/BYU Forum

I like Adam Miller's work and thinking.

BYU Magazine ran a brief overview of a recent campus event. The piece is short and worth reading.

Enjoy

Re: Asking to be released...

I sat in a Sacrament meeting about 20 years ago, where the Bishop gave his public farewell. He explained that he had been called over 5 years to the month, and that he had enjoyed it, but was sure he would be released soon. 10 more months passed before his desired release happened. In those 10 month...

Dieter Update

In my grief I find myself obsessing over him. Fandom is killing me. https://www.sltrib.com/religion/local/2018/01/22/so-what-is-mormon-apostle-uchtdorf-doing-now-for-starters-he-is-overseeing-global-lds-missionary-efforts/ I am mixed about this news. One half of me is screaming, "They sent him to Si...

Re: Thread about Press Conference after new FP announced

Instead it was basically asserted that women have soft influence in the church through their marital and family relationships to men. To me the biggest irony of this vision, is that both the top men married long time single women. Why those wives don't speak up about being single is beyond me. I wo...

Re: If the theme for the year is keeping the Sabbath day holy, what are we doing wrong?

I had that question too? Every active member around me seems to be playing by the book. They wear their Sunday clothes all day long, stay hidden in the house to read scriptures, attend mega hours of church (bored or not), so I am baffled. If they wish to reach the wicked world, it isn't working. The...

Re: My Nephew Met a GA

Thanks Sam,

It is good to remember their human side. Where I live we rarely "run into" them. Years ago Neal A. Maxwell was the visiting GA at a live Regional Conference. Sadly the room echoed too much to hear him.

Thanks for sharing good stories. We need those all the time.

Re: On DFU Making it Back to the FP or Becoming Pres

would love a DFU presidency (think about who he would call as counselors!!). To soothe my soul, I have been playing Fantasy FB. It's been a lot of fun. My winning combo is DFU, Patrick Kearon, Elder Causse. (That's using the people we have. But if a nice non-white guy gets a chair, then I am all ab...
