Re: My Present Struggle With OW

I support Ordain Women. I didn't participate in the action, for various reasons. But I know some of the participants. And I have to tell you that the newspaper articles about what took place on temple square last night are not accurate. I agree that general authorities are threatened and going into...

Re: Getting worked up over GC

I just want to wrap this up by saying thank you... Thank you Ray... Thank you DarkJedi... Thank you StayLDS Community. I'm low right now. I feel shaken in a way I haven't felt for a long time. It's incredibly warming, reassuring, and helpful to have the support of the people here. I'm grateful for ...

Re: Second coming

Studies have shown that people have a built in "not my tribe" DNA detector. Speaking of tribes in recent years I have made a conscious effort to think of the entire human race as "my tribe." We are all children of God after all, sure our backgrounds give us superficial divisions but it has given me...

Re: It was the end, it was the beginning

Benvenuto Ralph! Glad you are finding some peace here. Thanks for introducing yourself. Hope we can learn from each other and be a support. That must have taken some serious courage to ask to be Released from the Bishopric. I was in the RS presidency when my FC hit and I asked to be released. It was...

Re: Hmmpff.

Mom3, I am glad you found a safe way to vent. I have decided that I need to stay off of FB for the next 2 weeks while GC blows over. I am also trying not to be harsh on myself because of this. I feel guilty that I can't just let things go sometimes because, like you, sometimes I can and sometimes I ...

Re: Unconditional Love of God in a performance-based religio

Beautiful thoughts Roy! I love reading your thoughts about God's love. I totally agree. I have thought about the sames things and come to very similar conclusions. My faith crisis was brought on by Gods love and "unconditional" love that seemed very conditional. I have talked to three Bishops, RS pr...
