Re: How do I talk to my wife about my faith crisis?

Part of me hopes that if presented with the material the right way, she might be able to see the church for what it is, but I don't know the best way to go about it. Does anyone have any advice?? I don't have much time right now and hope to be able to give a better response in the future but my gut...

Re: And the cycle repeats itself

At church, I hunted down the Bishop's councilor since the SS President wasn't present. I asked who the teachers are at this time. The Bp's councilor was more concerned that I wasn't following the chain of command and asking the SS President that question. That right there is weird. Very strange. Ch...

Re: The New Sunday Stuff and Me

I like the idea of home church too, just not as formalized as it is presented at church. I struggle to communicate. All our talk of home church is really just the same problem I'm having in general with our meetings but with a home church skin over the top of it. Take the subject of genealogy, just ...

Re: The New Sunday Stuff and Me

Oh, one last thing, then I'll :silent: My The New Sunday Stuff and Me We're on the sixth Sunday this year, twelve hours of church behind us. In my ward three of those hours, 25% of our total time together thusfar, has been focused on leaning on people to do the home church stuff. I was worried about...

Re: The New Sunday Stuff and Me

Worldly influences: 1) The church hasn't changed much in the last quarter decade (maybe more). Meanwhile the world has changed significantly . The information age alone. In my opinion the church is still reacting to that event, trying to play catch up. 2) Push back. Despite our best efforts ( :angel...

I feel for you, Mom. This list, Judgement of others Comments on inactives Gender hints or comments We're number 1 Seems pretty typical, although I'm sure the new system makes the original problem worse. It's more or less bad habits carrying over from past systems. Something I haven't been very good...

Re: Help on a talk

"Deepening our testimonies through adherence to modern day revelation" Wow. Topic titles don't get any more Mormon than that. 1) Obsession with strength of one's testimony 2) Obedience 3) To an implied modern day prophet Before I even read your idea my initial thought was to re-frame modern day reve...

Re: New Sunday School - Not.

Just curious because every unit here is using their chapel for SS because that's the only space large enough. What's happening in places where multiple wards use the same building and the chapel is being used for another SM? We're in the chapel, and it's a mess because another ward starts their SM ...
