Re: Overcoming the constant pursuit of fulfilment

Self fulfillment is the top level of Maslow's Hierarchy, yes? And not everybody gets there, correct? Sadly, some never get beyond the very basic level of need. Count your many blessings SD.

Re: RM's auto-admitted to BYU-Pathway Program

How does the certificate help them -- does it waive certain entrance requirements to BYU-I or other colleges? There are some jobs that can be had with a certificate. Also, it is my understanding that at BYU-I/Pathways the certificate counts toward an applicable associate's degree and the associate'...

Re: RM's auto-admitted to BYU-Pathway Program

Dande I do think the credits transfer. That's why they do it through BYU-I, they're accredited. Of course what other school is going to put Book of Mormon classes anywhere but as an elective which probably translates to "instead of 128 credits to graduate you'll need 130." I depends on the universi...

Re: RM's auto-admitted to BYU-Pathway Program

Although they would not get the same revenue as from their traditional tuition, the students are ones from whom they would not receive any revenue otherwise - and online courses are much cheaper to administer than on-ground courses. I think this is the way most college eduation is leaning in the fu...

Re: De-emphasis on Food Storage?

In another thread, it was mentioned that food storage might be de-emphasized now. I would like to explore this further. Is this true? How do we know this, and what would be the rationale for it, if true, given the recent statements that the second coming is night? (it's always nigh)... Interested i...

Re: Everything's on the table now

I agree and I liked the article. I think that at least for me, there is almost a visceral reaction to what I feel are the unstated prospective expectations of me by my family members. Example: I had issues with the temple wording previously, and that was part of why I was not interested in more ful...

Re: Everything's on the table now

Good post, Hawkgrrrl. I think what perturbs be the most (I can't think of a better word), is that policy doesn't make the Church more or less true. Policy is symptomatic of doctrine. Even IF the Church had the "correct" policy all along, that wouldn't change the underlying truthfulness of the Churc...
