Re: I Have Met the Name and It is Us

I noticed in conference, President Nelson shortened it to "Latter-Day Saints". I've also seen "Latter-Day Saints" used much more prevelantly than the full name, or "Mormon", on official LDS sites and publications. It still removes "Christ" from the name, and it sounds concieted, BUT it's still much...

I Have Met the Name and It is Us

Wellppp - I ran into "The New Name" last night. It's a mouthful. And a page full. A lot of full. We have two fantastic LDS - Mormon -Church of... Stakes that serve at a shelter I am a site coordinator for. Love the people. Love the work. Last night was our seasonal training meeting. Two women were h...

Re: Credit Where Credit Is Due

SD - That is beautiful. I am happy for you and your daughter. I have liked both being fully in and half way out. Right now half way out is perfect.

Re: Teachers Council Once a Quarter? Once a Quarter!

On that note (and a bit of thread jack) a lot of callings are being eliminated or toned down. In Relief Society an entire pyramid of callings was removed when Ministering came in. There used to be an army of women who ran the Visiting Teaching program. Now they aren't needed. Reducing an entire hour...

Re: Teachers Council Once a Quarter? Once a Quarter!

Me? I would keep the calling. Be silent and enjoy the vacation. If anyone asks you if there can be a Teachers Council, tell them you'll look into it, but with the new changes you want to see where it all fits. There is nothing better, IMO, than having a do nothing calling. I love callings where I ca...

Credit Where Credit Is Due

In the past weeks I have spilled my resentful guts all over the page. The vent was appreciated. As the dust of my soul settles I do believe that a potential for silver linings exist in the blizzard clouds. I think this church Presidency/Q15 wants a less programmed church I think making room for pers...

Re: Help (In a Good Way)

I am a huge Chieko fan. I would encourage listening to her talks as well as reading them. Her style and delivery added to the message. She often brought examples like quilts, jars of fruit, etc. We also need to hear from other LDS women. My friend taught the lesson last week as a sub. She was so fru...

Re: New Sunday Worship

This is the subject of an entire different thread but compared to other churches I've been to our chapels are... uninspiring to put it mildly. We've got the burlap halfway up the walls, no windows, all interior walls, all artificial light, permanent cheerio dust and glitter ground into the utilitar...

Re: New Sunday Worship

Remember in Lord of the Rings where there was an obvious climax, the movie was done, and then there was a whole other two hours? That's our church. I love this part. It's when Gandalf falls down with the Balrog right before Bilbo's birthday. I love the card Aragorn sends. One church I went to the a...
