Re: New Sunday Worship

Having it first has always given me the impression of just getting it over with so we can get on to more important things. But then most members wouldn't show up for the first 40 minutes of sacrament meeting! :lol: dande, I laughed and enjoyed your comment. It did make me think a bit. I think part ...

We are all adults. This isn't a one up game.
My suggestion is that when these women reappear on social media, read their posts for a day without commenting and the next day post, "Sorry gals, I'm just getting back now, because my fast went up to 11."

Re: New Sunday Worship

I appreciated the direction from GC to minimize announcements in SM. So much of what we cover there is just minutiae. I'd like to think we will take this opportunity to have ONLY items that must be approved by the Ward (even knowing each ward will approve everything, with 100% of the 'vote'). My pre...

Re: The Church to match box office sales ...

Some thoughts: - The Church donated all proceeds from the film "Meet the Mormons" to the American Red Cross. - I don't believe the Church or its populace were a racist lot during the time of JS. All evidence I can find points toward this as a later development. In fact, a large part of the conflict ...

Re: Elder Gong's Talk

I don't know that it is routine and repetition that people want, but rather milestones that reward people who remain all-in in spite of how hard it can be to do that. For example, I used to always enjoy going to the chapel for PM during GC and the communal event, as noted by AmyJ. That lasted many m...

Re: Tonight Is The Last Night My Wife Will Come To The Temple With Me.

I don't know how I can help you except to talk a bit about the last time I went to the temple. To me, it was more like the nail in the coffin than one last chance to see the light. I felt nothing. No spirit. Only anguish that it was 'over' for me. I now haven't been to the temple since Al Gore was o...

Re: Supposed Blizzard of Changes coming at General Conference

Relaxing WoW requirements. I got to thinking (dangerous), during the mission years I taught a lot of people that would have been baptized if not for a coffee or smoking habit. I wonder whether the church would relax WoW requirements (even if only in order to be baptized, you'd still have to comply ...

Re: Single Women: You have Priesthood Authority in Your Home

Curt, Could you help me understand what these guys are talking about if it's not delegated authority? I don't mean that as any kind of debate/challenge. I honestly would like to see it differently and I'm interested in your take... I went back and re-read DHO and I just only can see delegated author...
