Re: Restriction on Christmas Sacrament Meeting

Invite your friends because we're going to have a special meeting that focuses on Christ sounds like the advertisement I've heard for the last several years now. That the meeting is considered special because of a focus on Christ has very sad implications about the rest of our SMs. I also recall the...

Re: Moving for a ward boundary?

That's rough. I too am sorry you're going through this. Lots of people "ward shop" when they're looking to buy a house. They'll attend a ward a Sunday or two, decide which ward(s) they like best, and then start looking for a house in those ward boundaries... provided there are enough wards in your a...

Re: LDS church supports LGBQT conversion therapy?

Given the church's track record it's much harder for me to conclude that the church operates in good faith when it comes to LBGT+ issues. Oaks repeated statements also don't help the church's case. Locals and leaders alike often say "religious freedom" but what they're really talking about is being ...

Re: New Video Format of Temple Endowment

The temple president could have responded with: That the rights of the priesthood are inseparably connected with the powers of heaven, and that the powers of heaven cannot be controlled nor handled only upon the principles of righteousness. That they may be conferred upon us, it is true; but when we...

Re: Standing when a woman enters a room

It was a bad joke.

And I think there's a difference between standing to offer up your seat to someone and standing just because someone walked in a room and then promptly sitting back down.

Re: Standing when a woman enters a room

It was probably etiquette back in 1776 when Nelson was in his courting years. :angel: :angel:

Re: Area devotional?

I was curious what the danger was that Elder Ballard was warning about. He seams to be talking about this nation at a "crossroads". Could be interpreted several different ways, I suppose. Crossroads just means we have choices ahead. When would that not be the case? It's likely anxiety and fear over...

Re: Area devotional?

I think that Joseph would be too preoccupied with trying to set himself up as king of the world to take much notice in what the little leaders at general conference were saying about him. :angel:

Re: LDS church supports LGBQT conversion therapy?

I am wondering if maybe the church should get out of the counseling business like they previously got out of the adoption business. To me it appears that to be a counselor at LDS Family Services can constitute a conflict of interest. You are supposed to advocate for the best interest of the client ...

Re: Area devotional?

I heard reports that people were asked to pray for "the country" during the devotional. It's a safe way to phrase things for both sides. People that love what's happening in the country will take that as a signal to pray that god will continue to guide elected leaders. People that don't love what's ...
