Re: Give Thanks as an American thing

I hope everyone had a good holiday. From my point of view, it was very strange (but good). For dinner, it was just my wife & me. Then we had a 2 hr zoom visit with out 3 children & their families plus my nephew & his family. It was surprisingly fun. Most of the time we talked about holidays past wit...

Re: Tithing Settlement during the pandemic

I believe we are a harder judge of ourselves than the judgement that comes from others. (is "harder" a word?)
It is so easy to feel guilty or that we don't measure up to other people in our circle of friends & relatives.

Re: I took a big step on Sunday and it went good

Meetings like you described can go either good or bad. Yours was a good meeting. But, you knew that already. The important thing is: you were honest about your beliefs & feelings without trying to hurt the feelings of another. A meeting like this helps a new Bishop understand the dynamics within his...

Re: StayLDS Version of the Give Thanks Media Campaign

This is a simple list with multiple layers of meaning for me:
- Family.

- Friends.

- Food.

I can't enjoy any of them the way we use to before Covid 19.
I long for a better & healthier tomorrow for me, our families & our little "group" at StayLDS.

Re: Tithing Settlement during the pandemic

Are all wards & branches doing the virtual tithing settlement this year? Like I said before, mine is.
I really dislike the virtual experience. Maybe it's because of my age. What is the next step?
Virtual Endowment sessions?

Re: How to respond to missionaries

How to respond to missionaries. Under normal circumstances, I like to support the Missionaries in our ward. Plus, it is interesting to talk with them. Their calling is hard enough as is, under normal conditions. In our ward they do not have a vehicle so they use public transportation or we drive the...

Re: How to respond to missionaries

I can't imagine what it must be like for these young men. IMO it would be more merciful to send them home & be locked down
with family.

Re: Recent U.S. election

I occasionally watch "born again" religious programs on tv. It takes about 10 min max before I have to change to a different station. It is interesting how they can tie the us elections to the "end of days" & the 2nd coming of Christ. In the process, selling books, survival supplies & asking for don...

Re: Tithing Settlement during the pandemic

Well it's official for our Ward: our Bishop is scheduling virtual tithing settlements.
I don't know what I'm going to do. I dislike anything virtual. It's so impersonal.
Come to think of it, I'm not thrilled about in person as well.
