Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

I wish your SP had've said that he would release you, but that he wants you to be involved in spite of your faith crisis. He could have said something like "I know you want to live a good life, that your marriage and life is entwined with the church, and we want you to continue to experience joy in...

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

DT, what are your plans regarding church from here on? I'm still working on that, but that was also the case before my meeting with the SP. I have decided that I will figure things out on my own terms in accord with what's best for my wife, children, and me (ideally in that order). I won't let my S...

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

I'm curious, in a case like this, is there an ecclesiastical appeal a member can make? I certainly have no plans or even the remotest desire to try and appeal this. This all seemed pretty informal to me, even though the results FELT more severe than necessary. Don't let the member with PRIVATELY ex...

Re: Fanny Alger, First Plural Wife?

I'll try to provide a quick response, but this is from my phone and I won't be able to look anything up or get sources, so I might make some mistakes. For: - Joseph Smith and other leaders referred to it as a marriage after the fact - If it wasn't a marriage, then Joseph could be accused of adultery...

Re: new website to build bridges

Bill, thanks for your work on this. I don't want to sound too critical because I can tell you've worked really hard on this, and I haven't had a chance to read the most updated version. But when looking at the new website, one thing jumped out at me that would make me hesitant to direct my TBM famil...

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

I do understand your situation is different and you are apparently not under discipline at this point. Your OP did indicate a bit differently than "you probably shouldn't pray" which is different from "you are not permitted pray." I don't know your SP or bishop, nevertheless don't underestimate wha...

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

As a side note, I would love it and laugh so hard, if they brought you into Church Disciplinary Council for "praying in Church". If I were you, I'd volunteer every Sunday School. They would do a disciplinary council because he is not obeying the council of his SP in that circumstance. I recognize y...

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

DT - I repeat my offer to send my email so she can have someone to talk to. I also promise not to sway her. I've been in her shoes. I can listen really well. Thanks for the offer. I'll ask her and see if she's interested. She may be inherently distrusting of someone from this site. She knows I post...

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

Yeah -- you posted in another thread that your wife felt betrayed and hurt -- how has this impacted her? We left that meeting and she was still rather emotional - emotions that had spilled over during the meeting. But the next day she was clearly doing much better and told me she was feeling at pea...
