Re: Temple recommend interviews and "testimony"

I review the night before what I'm going to say. If I think I won't pass the interview, I won't go. My answers are always yes or no, period . Our SP never goes beyond my answer. In addition, they have 10 minutes max to do the interview. Or, the line backs up & he is late. I never lie. If there is an...

Re: Temple recommend interviews and "testimony"

This is a link to a discussion we had earlier: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=6117

It helped me a lot & I recommend it again.

Re: Why So Many Latter-day Saints Can’t Stand Church (And How to Fix It)

That is a very good article & should be required reading at Church. It would make a great class presentation & discussion. At the end there is a quote: Elder L. Tom Perry once said that the gospel “answers all of life’s questions and problems that face us.” The only qualifier I would add is: God nev...

Re: Elder Holland Talk on Reconciliation

We had this discussion in PH yesterday. We got to the end to the lesson & I couldn't take it anymore. I raised my hand & asked: Are we saying that this process of reconciliation is easy? Speaking for myself, it is not. It isn't easy for either person in the story. Meaning the giving the hug or recei...

Re: How can I help divorce?

Be careful that he knows that you are helping as a friend. He could interpret your actions as

Re: Elder Holland Talk on Reconciliation

...My question, which I would have liked to have given, but didn't, was this. If the experience has you feeling very unsettled about the church, and the experiences therein, why does nothing short of full activity qualify as reconciliation? Why not simply redefine the relationship and seek joy in o...

Re: Maintaining and building relationships

...what can we do to maintain and build those relationships with members we cherish? Any thoughts? What's worked for you? The short answer is: the same way we build relationships with non-members. I am reluctant to show my hand or reveal my real beliefs & feelings until we establish mutual trust. W...

Re: Anger, Rage, and Revenge seeking

Anger, Rage & Revenge are topics that we, as a church, do not talk about very much. These (3) emotions are central to why I became inactive. It took time before I could even attempt to deal with the circumstances & issues. I'm not going to repeat my story again. There are certain issues the Church h...
