Re: Feeling the pull..

Nibbler, If I am not a member of their Ward, wouldn't I be excluded from a calling? I have never heard of a LDS person having records sent to a Ward of their choosing, making them available for callings and assignments. I actually heard it would require First Presidency approval? Not willing to go t...

Re: Feeling the pull..

Hi Roy, you either know who I am or you are good at guessing. :D :wave: I guess I will play it by ear. My plan is to attend CofC home congregation 2 times a month, 1 time at the Ward and 1 other experience (depending on the calendar). For example, there is an ex-Mo group that is meeting for coffee o...

Re: Feeling the pull..

Wow Roy, thank you for your reply. It is very generous of you to type such a long message. You must really care about us. I personally see that as a very short term strategy. If you wish to return to this ward even sporadically then some people may compare notes and raise red flags. I personally fin...

Feeling the pull..

It has been awhile since I posted here. This forum may be a little dated but it gives all of us a chance to be almost anonymous with our posts. For that, I can be more candid about my journey and background. I have been away from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (henceforth LDS) since...

Re: Dating a non member

I have tons of personal experience on this subject, I could call myself an expert on it because I have lived it! This something you will have to decide for yourself. I married my Wife when I was inactive, 16 years ago. She gave it a chance but couldn't handle the 3 hour block and TBMs always trying ...

Re: Elder Uchtdorf: Doubt, mistakes, leaving and staying

The first two paragraphs of his talk is very uplifting to me. I didn't leave due to doctrine issues and doubts, it more had to do with my family and social issues. I love how he said that the reason people leave are not cut and dry. I admire him and know he cares about the members. God bless all of ...

Re: My Testimony

No, you aren't bothering me with questions. My Wife has no opinion of JS because she hasn't been exposed to his teachings directly. She never had the discussions, so the only way she heard about him is sacrament meeting (she may have attended 25 times or so over the years). Your correct, her reasons...

Re: My Testimony

Roy, Yes, my Wife was raised as a Presbyterian but was mostly a social member. She has some ideas of the nature of Jesus Christ, but they aren't very deep. There were a few things that my Wife didn't care for. She is an extremely shy and private person, but very nice to be with once you get to know ...

Re: My Testimony

Before someone deletes my post, keep in mind that my testimony is not a commercial for Community of Christ. It is simply the answer that I got, in prayer by the Lord Himself. Your prayers and path may vary. I actually advocate working out your differences with your current faith. Just keep this in m...

My Testimony

I have been lurking here, without posting but reading about all sorts of crisis on the truth, scriptures, JS, ward problems, ect.. The more I read, the more I feel sad for those who lost their faith. I had my own crisis too, but I have found peace with my immediate family. God has given me what I ha...
