Re: The Nature Of Families in Heaven

The church does teach the principle of "Eternal Progression". It isn't always clear what it is or means. It is unique to our faith, I believe. To me it means that in eternity, we learn at our own pace. And we have the potential to arrive at the same place on different time tables. Personally, I am a...

Re: What should I do?

I believe the definitions of "callings" & positions in the church are changing. For example: Stake or Ward Missionaries were called, trained and supervised by Stake positions: Seventies Presidents & Quorum. Visiting Teachers & Home Teachers were called, trained and supervised by EQ Presidency & RS P...

Re: What IS the Priesthood and why is it needed?

There are other questions that I have. For example: Why does anyone need to be "set apart" while accepting a
calling in the church? I don't want to hijack the topic. If I am tell me & I'll go away. But, it seems to be similar.
Just curious.

Re: Dull video on Primary

Thank you for the warning about this video. We haven't seen it yet. When it comes to our ward, I will be in my car or home.

Re: God: How involved is He?

1 Corinthians 13 11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. 12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. We have...

Re: Area devotional?

You're right. They are probably taking more advantage of the new technology. That way they can do less traveling.

Re: Area devotional?

I have. They usually don't come on a regular basis. Our last one was in or around 1984?
We live in the midwest. It was for Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota & Iowa. (& maybe Michigan?)
There was no big announcement. It seemed to be like a mini general regional conference.

Re: TR Questions Change-up

From time to time, I think they have to go through an organizational change in format for these questions. Otherwise, members
are answering the question before the question has been asked. To avoid a robotic response. They want us to reflect on how we
answer. (I'm guessing.)

Re: What should I do?

When I've felt the way you described, it's my cue that someone else should do this calling. One suggestion: if you go to the Bishop and
ask to be released give him a candidate to fill the position.

Also, can you talk to your Bishop & tell him how you feel?
Would he understand how you feel?
