Re: Church Donations to Help SLC Homeless People

Yay! I stayed in a hotel in the Rio Grande Station area across from the park last July, and the view out my window was very distressing. It's good to see the Church and community doing something constructive about homelessness.

Re: An Introduction...

Welcome. Sounds like we have lots in common, not the least of which is a history of mental illness in the family. Seems like schizophrenia has dogged my family for generations. Every family in the line has at least one victim. Scary. I'm glad you're here, and registered. I've appreciated your commen...

Re: Anniversary Posting: Progression: What's the Hurry, and Do I Really Want To Go to Heaven?

These are good comments and I appreciate what has been said. I'm going to take some time mulling them over, now that I'm in a calmer more reflective mood. I think I've seen other threads and comments about the prosperity gospel and I want to review some of those. Thanks for your support.

Re: Questions to ensure youth are ready to serve a mission

I served a mission in the days when we went to the mission home in Salt Lake for three days and then to the Language Training Mission in Provo. After a hectic and draining 3 days in Salt Lake, I looked forward to the lackadaisical wandering about BYU campus with my troop, spouting the occasional wor...

Re: Anniversary Posting: Progression: What's the Hurry, and Do I Really Want To Go to Heaven?

Dande48, Thanks for your comments. For some reason, the Book of Job pops into mind as I read them. Not because I compare my troubles to Job's; I have not lost so much. And to some extent, that which I have lost has been restored, but not the time to enjoy it. But to compare myself to people in your ...

Anniversary Posting: Progression: What's the Hurry, and Do I Really Want To Go to Heaven?

Anniversary Posting: Progression: What's the Hurry, and Do I Really Want To Go to Heaven? What's the hurry? I am feeling pushed around, hurried and coerced, and maybe towards a place I don't want to go. I mentioned some of these thoughts in a comment to a different thread recently, but I am really f...

Re: Going to Church by Loomis

Wow. what a picture. I remember driving through Vermont and New Hampshire about 25 years ago on conference weekend. In a small town, church was just getting out and a woman and a small girl were leaving a Protestant church and walking across a lawn, white gloves and all, looking like they very well ...

Re: What if the world is not declining?

SamBee,
You may very well be correct. After all, Peter Zeihan is denoted as a contrarian in at least one internet source. Regardless of how they unfold, the next 10-20 years are going to be something to watch!
