Re: How can I help divorce?

Ask him if he wants to hang out. Getting dinner or going to a movie once a month. Stuff like that. A divorce hurts worse than death. He may even reject offers at this point. If he does, just keep saying hi. Depending on how comfortable you are, you could ask him directly if there are ways you could ...

Re: 11-Year-Old Deacons and Beehives

This is one of those "The More Things Change, The More They Stay the Same." In the 1970's advancement ran pretty close to this. You went with your school grade. It wasn't by birthdate or ordination. Then in the 1980's, when we moved to the 3 hour block they implemented the birthday advancement plan....

Re: President Nelson Quote - What think you.

I will watch the comments closely. Thanks for putting a clearer comparison up. I am still not sure what I think.

Re: He totally changed sacrament meeting

I would love this change in our sacrament meetings! Our ward does exactly what the writer described, giving talks on general conference talks. It's rare to hear a talk that quotes from the scriptures (unless the scripture was mentioned in the assigned conference talk) and the majority make no menti...

Re: An Introduction to Zen Buddhism

I love Buddhism. It's a great lifestyle. I know Secular Buddhism is a new fad, I prefer the more traditional. That said I have read of plenty of Buddhist followers who experience faith crisis or changes and join churches. Look no farther than Chieko Okazaki. She continued to practice her Buddhism al...

Re: Bill Reel about to get excommunicated? >:-(

Does anyone know if that letter Bill recieved, and the non-disclosure agreement is customary in a disciplinary hearing? Because it seems like the Church made him sign that non-disclosures specifically becausehe was Bill, and because they knew Bill would've recorded it otherwise. Their highest chanc...

Re: President Nelson Quote - What think you.

No, I think it means there will be even more restoration projects like City Creek Mall
Naturally, because Jesus' step-dad was a carpenter. Makes sense to me. :silent:

Re: Announcements - Less of?

My ward tried proactively advertising an event once. Our youth spent their entire mutual night running around town, papering windshields with flyers and asking stores if they could put the announcement up in their window. Some of them even got chased off by a security guard who was excited that he ...

Re: Bill Reel about to get excommunicated? >:-(

My husband and I (my husband, for clarity is MINO - Mormon in Record Only. He used to be a major pod caster etc. He knows all the junk. Including the deep pain.) It is our opinion that a line gets crossed when the church or image of the church becomes embarrassed. Crying women pleading out front of ...

Re: Bill Reel about to get excommunicated? >:-(

If we're okay with stating that the church should be nothing more than a man-made organization then we can hold it to the standards of man-made organizations. If we aspire for the church to be something more, something divine, would we not want to work to hold it to a higher standard? It is actuall...
