Re: Island of Misfit Toys

I go out of my way most of the time to be classified as a Misfit. I will always question & challenge ideas or authority. (I was raised in the 60's & 70's) I do it most of the time to see if a position, idea or decision can be justified or backed up with facts. Many of us, on this forum, do it throug...

Re: Can't remember why I'm hurt but I still am!

There are people in my ward that I avoid & I can't tell you (specifically) why. There are people in my ward that (I'm sure) avoid me & can't say why. We will never accept or be friends with everyone we come in contact with. Inside the church or in outside world. I do have a core of friends (and rela...

Re: Who & what to believe

I am currently reading The Jefferson Bible. He took the four gospels from the NT & tried to define what really believed. Thomas Jefferson states the following in the Preface: Say nothing of my religion. It is known to my God and myself alone. Its evidence before the world is to be sought in my life;...

Re: Who & what to believe

....you still must decide which camp to join !! Or, there are other options, start your own camp or join with us. I remember getting to this stage & deciding to follow my own inspiration. Wherever it comes from. There are really many options. Discover for yourself what they are. Talk with close fri...

Gay Rights & the state of Utah

This is an article & movie trailer my son sent me. I thought it was interesting & fits some of the topics we discuss. http://www.kzoo.edu/news/gay-marriage-documentary/ One of the featured interviews was given by an Associate (Mormon) Professor from Kalamazoo College. My son works at this college to...

Re: Will the new ministering program change your level of engagement with "ministering"?

I read the letter from the first presidency & thought "this is way too general". When I got to the end of the letter, there is a web site that explains how it works in detail: ministering.lds.org/eng. I encourage everyone to look it over. You will be directed to: https://providentliving.lds.org/lead...

Re: Combining Elders and High Priests

I've always thought it was weird that the men had to be separated at all - and potentially problematic that they had to separated by 'status' - so I see this as a good thing. Not earth-shattering but good. Back in the day, I didn't see it as being problematic. Each office of the PH had a separate p...

Re: April 2018 General Men's Session

This isn't a criticism, I'm really trying to understand the need for this change. If combining the Elders & HPs is good on the Ward (rank & file) level, why isn't it good on a Leadership level? Bishopric, Stake Presidency, High Council & General Authority. And why do we need the office of a Seventy?...
