Re: Dear Mormon Church, I think we need to talk.

This felt very sincere and captured my attention, thank you! Even if it's not my experience exactly I can use this as a frame work for my own imaginary back and forth letter to/ from my organizational church "love", that is at times strained (both ways).. but is always worth an honest internal dial...

Re: Introduction

Hi everyone, I don't know yet how the middle-path will be, what obstacles we will encounter, but I feel happy that I can be me, unsure, unknowing, but willing to learn , and chart my own spiritual course. Looking forward to connecting with the community. -SunbeltRed SunbeltRed: Welcome! Many here a...

Re: Dear Mormon Church, I think we need to talk.

Imagine how difficult it must be for Kate Kelly, Her husband and parents, and her Bishop and Stake President. My heart goes out to them and they figure prominently in my prayers. SGoodman: It is a difficult week for me BECAUSE it is a difficult week for all those you mentioned -- as well as for me ...

Re: Dear Mormon Church, I think we need to talk.

Dear LDS Thomas, I'm so sorry you feel this way. I, too, remember vividly the euphoria of those early years together. You were committed and eager, though inexperienced. We did a lot of good together for a lot of people. I remember how scared you were when I first started calling you Bishop and how...

Re: Dear Mormon Church, I think we need to talk.

THANK YOU everyone for the continued kind comments. As I wrote the original "Dear Mormon Church" letter yesterday, I felt a little bit of peace and I thought that posting it would provide . . . I don't know, something that I was apparently seeking. While the kind comments here (and on one other onli...

Re: Dear Mormon Church, I think we need to talk.

Nice, and I could certainly had written most of it myself. I'm not sure if we should be blaming the "Church" for the events of the past couple weeks, though. I say that because I spent many years being angry at God until I finally realized it wasn't God I was or should have been angry with - it was...

Dear Mormon Church, I think we need to talk.

Dear Mormon Church, I think we need to talk. As you remember, we met in college. I was young and naive but not inexperienced in many “worldly ways.” When you and I were introduced, I became mesmerized by you and I literally fell in love with you, Mormon Church. You provided me with answers to questi...
