Re: The New Inactives - Seniors

My personal observation is when a senior member has been a Stake President, Bishop, Branch President, RS President, etc becomes retirement age, there seems to be an understanding that they don't receive callings, have speaking assignments, give prayers, etc. It seems to be understood by our current ...

Re: The Prosperity Gospel

Many of us have certain expectations related to the gospel that are not true or exaggerated. Prosperity is just one. For example, in my life I expected that when bad times or hardships developed, I would be given special inspiration or insight or comfort that would kick in when I needed it. This I a...

Re: Creationism vs Evolutionism in Faith Transition... Or Why Do I Feel Like I Lost the Arguement?

Recently I've been reading through the parables in scripture. It is estimated that Jesus taught between 33-35% of his teachings using parables. Parables aren't necessarily a true depiction of something that really happened. It is a depiction of gospel principles in story format. Would it be wrong or...

Re: Creationism vs Evolutionism in Faith Transition... Or Why Do I Feel Like I Lost the Arguement?

For me, the issue is in (2) parts: 1. is it necessary for me (or anyone) to know exactly how this world was created? My answer is: no. 2. is there evidence that this world was created by design? My answer is: yes. The last question I have is: If you were going to write a story describing the creatio...

Re: Feeling Traumatized at Church?

As I read the postings I've asked myself "is traumatized" the right description for what I feel at church? Traumatized to me means: injury to the body, mind or spirit. Examples may include: victim of a violent act. There are situations at church where I feel VERY uncomfortable. There are ways I try ...

Re: Good things that happen at church

Yesterday we got a new counselor in the Bishopric of our ward. He is quiet, unassuming & hard working. He had been inactive for a while then became active again about a year or two before we did. Our ward is a good mixture of Students, professionals and others that are from the inner city. Some that...

Re: How do you measure success in "ministering"

How does the PH & RS address "ministering" in your Ward or Branch? The reason I ask is last Sunday during PH I was sitting with my "old" HT companion. At the beginning of the PH session, the new EQP gave each of us our "ministering" (HT) assignments. It was the same list when it was call Home Teachi...
