Re: Alma 30 - I can't nuance this

az - in reading your post I was thinking, "wow- meeting with the family and having such a good discussion. This guy is doing it right. Thank you for your kind words. My wife wasn't coming to church with us, so if we were all going to get any kind of spiritual development together, that was the only...

Alma 30 - I can't nuance this

Just to recount a bit. I go to church and take my kids. My wife stays home. On Friday, the primary asked my wife it was OK if our kids read the scripture in sharing time. The scripture was the proclamation paragraph 3. First of all, it's not really a scripture... Second, it talks about temples and o...

Re: What to do about crazy lessons

Hi everyone, I wanted to follow up and give you some more information on this situation. If you've been following my other thread, you will have noticed that we just moved into a new ward. I took the opportunity to go meet with my new bishop last night. I opened up to him a bit about my thoughts and...

Re: What to do about crazy lessons

I love the Job analogy! I'll have to keep that one in my back pocket for future reference.

The difficult part in this particular case was trying to find the right timing to interject a comment, while simultaneously trying to figure out exactly what the ambiguous statements she was making meant.

Re: About to move

I have another update here. Our new bishopric came by to visit us tonight. It was a very pleasant social visit. My wife conveniently stepped had some 'errands' to run while they came over. (just to be clear, this means she just left because she didn't want to meet with them) While the bishopric was ...

Re: What to do about crazy lessons

Ray, thanks so much for your comments. What made it so challenging was that it was so ambiguous. I AM putting words in her mouth here on this board, but I don't feel too bad because no one knows here and this is (psuedo) anonymous. In reality she was tiptoeing around it, and didn't come out and say ...

Re: What to do about crazy lessons

I like both your answers. The trouble I was having was that the statements were so veiled that I am not completely confident that this was what she was really getting at. So, at the same time, I was trying to decide what she was actually trying to say, and trying to think of something halfway intell...

Re: Wonder if I came out too much..?

One thing I am every interested in is whether I will be able to teach with the spirit again. I have two strikes against me. One, my commitment and faith is very weak right now, as well as my personal righteousness since I do not hold a TR. Second, I will not be set apart in the calling. Traditional...
