Re: President for a day

- I would disavow polygamy: This is slightly off topic, but it troubles me too, that polygamy is still doctrine. We don't practice it for the living, right now, but it is still practiced. Specifically, President Nelson is a polygamist according to the laws and doctrines of the Church, because he ha...

Re: President for a day

There are so many changes I would make that I think the proposition is too broad. Let me limit it to just: - I would disavow polygamy: Polygamy was the single issue that led to my faith crisis. It is the first and foremost doctrine I would change if I was prophet/seer/revelator for a day. There are ...

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...
