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: 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...

Re: Putting a pet's name on the temple prayer roll

Along this same line, I've wondered if anyone has submitted a pet's name to the temple to be sealed to the owner's family?
