Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

Kind of like adding the 4th fold to our church mission. Not really much talked about it by hardly anyone, even if a prophet did say it. "Muggles don't notice much, now do they?" I actually love that observation by Mr. Weasley (and others). I notice this in the church all the time. Just this week in...

Sounds very similar to our stake conference where the Saturday session was all about ministering.
Our SP tells us that all adult sessions of SC everywhere are going to be about ministering this half of the year per the Q12.

Re: Saturday Evening Stake Conference

Of course I agree we should love each other. I think that's primarily what Jesus asked us to do and I think it's universal among world religions and belief systems. It's kind of the "one thing" I believe (know) about God. But I also think I understand where the Seventy was coming from, and I think i...

Re: Very good post about "what I wish Mormons knew about those that leave"

Thanks for sharing. I understand where the guy is coming from, I have felt the pain (I can see the thestrals). When I first saw the article title I thought "Oh, good, I haven't shared something like this with the SP lately." Again, I totally understand where the guy is coming from and I relate to ev...

Re: Stake Women Leaders on Dry Council Sunday

We don't have High Council Sunday monthly. It appears to be bi-monthly. I have no idea why. The past two sessions - we had one High Council Rep and one Woman from Stake Leadership. Each time they had a meaty topic. This one was the Atonement. The previous one was Covenants. In the past sometimes wi...

Re: Ex-Bishop Up for Disciplinary Council Regarding Minor Interview Outspeak

Who are the individuals that seem to defy this trend? Jaunita Brooks, Joanna Brooks, Jana Riess, Carol Lynn Pearson, Linda King Newell and Valeen Tippetts Avery, Richard Bushman, Fiona Givens and Terryl Givens, Eugene England, Richard Poll....etc. How do they balance pushing just hard enough to get...

Re: An Update About My Faith

I was once told by a Pastor from a Baptist church, "You can be saved and be Mormon, but it won't be the Mormonism that saves you." It struck me in a profound way and I still ponder on it from time to time. :thumbup: Interestingly, I think that fits with our theology - at least our theology at Josep...

Re: Ex-Bishop Up for Disciplinary Council Regarding Minor Interview Outspeak

OK, so I'm kind of with Mom on this one. What do mass resignations, or any resignations in protest, really do? I honestly think the church doesn't care from the "good riddance" point of view. What's a few hundred or a few thousand resignations mean? And those church statistical reports that we're no...

Re: An Update About My Faith

Thanks for the update. I have many of the same feelings in my testimony of the Savior. It's kind of funny I've been thinking about this a bit lately. There are several struggling families in our ward at the moment. I know I'm not supposed to be judgmental, and I try not to be (and I'm not sure this ...

Re: YSA Fireside

Like I said and Reuben also said, this book was not written for me. I think it is an attempt to keep more members from becoming like me. I agree, I think it is intended to inoculate and for those who have questions but don't really want to work hard at it here is a researched reference. And for tho...
