I am working through Bushman's "Rough Stone Rolling" - and while there is a lot to digest, a main theme is "religious-wise EVERYTHING regarding Joseph Smith and the restoration process is more complicated then it seems to be - and that part of the restoration process included "borrowing" already es...

Re: Maintaining and building relationships

I'd like to know as well, the first thought that comes to mind is I need more time to have friends these days. We have friends that are active and less active, we just don't have time to go do things with them. Maybe it's priorities, but raising kids and grandkids takes up a lot of time. Pretty much...

Re: Been holding cards very close to vest.

Welcome to the forum, it's great to find people where it's safe to express doubts and frustrations, get some advice, etc. We're all icebergs here in a sense that we only see these little bits of each other's views, but I can say it's helped me tremendously to have a sounding board. Thanks to everyon...

Re: An Introduction to Zen Buddhism

Suzuki points out again and again how Zen itself cannot be contained in a religious or dogmatic form. I like the id...

Re: An Introduction to Zen Buddhism

Buddhism seems to have had many fads over the years, I like the underlying messages and spirit of it, much like the message of all religions without their different dogma.
I'll have to read Chieko's story.

Re: Elder Holland Talk on Reconciliation

1. After you've been deeply wronged, the relationship is normally different than in the past. You wouldn't voluntarily jump back into an intense relationship with the person. I couldn't agree more. Took me a long time to get to the point That I realized I could forgive someone or even an institutio...

Re: The Orthodox Jewish Bible (NT)

Interesting. Taking any texts and changing a few words to a familiar language can make an interesting paradigm shift.

Re: Ward treating us like we're inactive?

You don't want to be seen as a project for the ward to work on, but it seems like they are just taking you under their wing so to speak. I also wouldn't worry about it. It also took a long time to get past the are you new in the ward thing for us, mostly that's because people are sometimes like us, ...
