Re: Looks like my name has come to the top of the list again

Oh, maybe a check on the family thing, especially with missionaries out. They come by to see if you are doing well for Christmas and the winter, especially since you are forking out a lot of money for missionary(ies). This happens periodically to make sure the family isn't getting strapped by the "s...

Re: Does the church bow to public pressure?

I'm one that prefers and organization like a church to change slowly. If they change to quickly, there will be problems with membership. Does the church change fast enough or slow enough? That is a tough question, which each would probably give a different answer. I think they are an 8, but not as "...

Re: Good Day at 'Church' Yesterday

My wife surprised me with nearly the same thing. We were in sacrament meeting, the sacrament was just finishing and she said, "I want to go home." I said, "OK, let's go". We did, after my kid sang with the primary. This happens periodically, I think it is my wife understanding my need to be gone.

Re: Looks like my name has come to the top of the list again

Any tips on dealing with the question if it arises? "Thank you. Will you offer it?" or "Thank you. I'd prefer to have you say it." I have only once had someone take over as "head of household", they were asked to never come back. {except my Dad or Father-In-Law, though they "didn't take over", out ...

Re: When Does Word of Wisdom get disavowed?

Please show me anywhere in DC 89 where it prohibits beer, tea, coffee or pot. It's right there ... in the D&C ... right there ... no, not there ... over there.... Just Kidding - I've never seen it. The Temple question says "Do you follow the Words of Wisdom?", right? Isn't that what it says? I foll...

Re: Utah polygamy laws ruled unconstitutional

I don't agree nor disagree with polygamy, monogomy, and other types of marriage.

I always wondered why government was in the business of regulating marriage. I thought it was weird that I "had to get a license" in order to get married. License???? What gives.

Re: Let me try to explain

Regarding your #2, I agree, the church is not suited to handle mental conditions. My family had similar issues, the best the ward could do was babysit and offer condolences (like we were dead!). Anyway, we didn't see a church psychologist, like some suggested. I avoided them and went with a doctor w...

Take my comment as my opinion .....

I would ask to be released. I wouldn't be able to do it.

Re: The hallway class

In my case, starting priesthood role is new. It's not done publicly. But rather I suppose to take it silently without drawing attention that I am doing...Can anyone tell me what I can do to better the situation? Positive feedback? I would like to feel better about my job and still help them without...

Re: The hallway class

So they actually take attendance in PH, RS and SS? I know I've been out for awhile, but I'm not aware of attendance ever being taken in my ward other than the SM count (which we like to inflate as much as possible for budgetary purposes, hence the guy counts several times, including at the end and ...
