Re: Where I am now...and the path forward. Inactive to Activ

It really gets down to the heart of the matter...that I have a lot of things on my plate that I am focusing on right now...and while church does indeed fill me up a lot...and I am very interested in having a community and being a part of that communi...

Where I am now...and the path forward. Inactive to Active

Hello all, So i'm getting active again. Had a very spiritual experience that pushed me to decide to become active in some type of spiritual community and, for the moment, I am very interested in furthering my LDS experience. Snapshot: 34 Male, Divorced, 2 kids I see on the weekends (every other). Cu...

Re: Looking for guidance in regards to staying LDS

Thank you all for your advice and perspectives. I attended church again today and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I think this is the path I am going to walk for a little while. I've been being blessed by attending and learning and growing. My atheistic world view has shattered...only because a lady who sa...

Looking for guidance in regards to staying LDS

Hello all, Been awhile since I've lurked these forums. I've had an interesting turn of events. I've dealt with a faith crisis since about 2008. I'm a convert. Never been to the temple yet. (Want to). Only an Aaronic Priesthood holder even at 34 years of age (Priest). I was a hard investigator...took...

Re: Does it get easier to walk the NOM path?

First off, thank you everyone for your kindness and support, you help me feel less crazy and more normal. I suppose I must be one of those people who evidently deep down prefer to "feel" in my gut 'truth'. The black and white thinking is strong in me but I am trying to change my thinking but it is p...

Does it get easier to walk the NOM path?

I find myself sliding in between Orthodox and unorthodox belief. in priesthood session, I found that I began to have the feelings of the Spirit uplift me so much. I was so inspired by some of the talks and I loved being around other people that I knew we're just trying to be better men and better pe...

Re: Impression of Dehlin/King Transcript

I have been following John Dehlin off and on for a few years. While I haven't listened to all of his podcasts, I must agree with Roy in that his overall demeanor seems to have changed quite a bit over time. Some of his earlier works seem to be a lot more faith promoting or just unorthodox but reason...

Re: utterly ridiculous

This is a toughie...but I suppose it is only tough if you think it is. Sometimes when people are set apart and given authority in a specific role it seems only natural that they would emphasize specific actions that they feel has benefited their own personal spiritual walk. I remember one day on 'Bi...

Re: A Mormon visits the local Unitarian Universalist Church.

I am one that participates in several churches. I tell LDS folks that I participate in many churches but only attend the LDS church. I tell non-LDS folk that the LDS is our "home church" but we enjoy supplementing our spirituality. In some of these churches we have found delightfully well run child...
