Re: New faith crisis podcast

I got behind on my podcasts and just yesterday cleared the last of them. Don't take this as your podcast is "last on my list". Actually the opposite. I want to carefully listen to each one as it is probably my one last attempt at keeping activity in the church (something my wife would REALLY like). ...

Re: The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt

After reading the book, I bought the audiobook so I could listen again - maybe a few times. I think I need to really understand what this book is saying about how people work. I think it will give me more understanding and sympathy for others.

Re: Does the formula for developing spirituality work for you?

To answer the first question for me - No, not really. I feel it more when I really help someone in need, or I am able to spend some time in nature - especially alone. In fact this issue is part of what was weighing my shelf down quite a bit - why is none of this working for me? Why do I feel absolut...

Re: Is Sacrament Meeting being held anywhere but Utah?

As I mentioned, in my stake they were splitting the ward into 3rd and having 1/3 of the ward come for a quick meeting. Our family was set for the 2nd week. I didn't feel comfortable going given the description that our bishop had sent out. But my wife went and it seems they were doing about all they...

Re: Is Sacrament Meeting being held anywhere but Utah?

We had the ward split into 3rds, with max 50 people signing up on their one of 3 rotating group signups. We got groups 1 and 2 to meet (less than 50) and then the SP put it all on hold given the surge in Covid cases in the area.
