Re: New First Presidency of the church

There's also the deacon's quorum president theory. RMN put his best buds in as his counselors.

Re: On DFU Making it Back to the FP or Becoming Pres

(even though we have a process for SPs or Bishops, so it works on other levels of the church) Could you imagine if we had this process for bishops and stake presidents? The SP is SP for life (or unless they get called up to be an AA or out of desperation they decide to move across the globe ;) ). T...

Re: On DFU Making it Back to the FP or Becoming Pres

I don't know how much of a difference it would make. Or stated differently, the church can't place all of its hopes in the Uchtdorf basket. You got me wondering though. What will it take to get a "young" prophet at the helm? The last "holy cow, that guy is old" apostle I can remember was David B. Ha...

Re: New First Presidency of the church

My snarky comment for the day: the announcement that RMN has 116 grandchildren sounds positively polygamy-ish. That is so many kids, how can he possibly remember all their names? All the boys are named Russell, Marion, or Jared and all the girls are named You. Alternatively: He's the prophet, and y...

Re: Thread about Press Conference after new FP announced

How can you, as leaders of the church, retain and draw millennials to belief in God and to the church? You are a child of god. Kids today are better than kids when I was on my mission. Get married. [something or other about growth]What do you expect for the future of the church in Brazil? Nelson: "...

Re: Thread about Press Conference after new FP announced

What will you do in your presidency to bring women, people of color, and international members into decision making for the church? They had trouble here. The leaders of the church aren't representative. God calls who he calls. There are so many countries that some countries are going to be left ou...

Re: Thread about Press Conference after new FP announced

Nelson: "I'm optimistic about the future and feel confident about the fundamental goodness of humankind." I liked that statement because I think we often run the risk of believing that the world only gets worse (more wicked) with time. I get the feeling that the focus on the church in coming years w...

The only ones that are coming to mind would violate some of this sites policies. Maybe even a temple covenant or two. :angel:

Re: New First Presidency of the church

Was reading some Dalai Lama quotes this morning, feeling the love, and was wishing he was one of our GAs (although not really, because it'd kind of ruin him). :lol: We need to get a thread started on that question and answer session they had with the press. It's full of :shock: :crazy: :shock: mome...

Re: Staying for my wife

The concern you have for your wife's feelings shows that you aren't a failure. It tells me that you're trying to do the very best with the cards that life dealt you. You certainly aren't alone. If my local leaders are to be believed, there are many husbands in my ward that only attend to support the...
