Re: Restriction on Christmas Sacrament Meeting

In a nutshell: -Dec. 22 will be a "special Christ centered" SM and no other meetings .... Is this part confirmed? I have heard an indirect rumor from 2-3 sources at my branch listed as offhand comments about something else. Unfortunately, I read into their non-verbals that this was off-hand knowled...

Re: Lord, Abide With Me - R.S. Lesson on Depression/Anxiety and Stuff PART 1

It's a way to explain personal resource allocation using spoons. I first learned about it from some of my friends who face chronic health issues. I found this article from the actual person who started talking in this way. https://butyoudontlooksick.com/articles/written-by-christine/the-spoon-theory...

Re: Achievement Day Fun - Not Spiritual

The mess was contained :lol: I don't think that it goes away. I think that the church units gain greater flexibility about when to hold them, and the budgets might get some reallocation. I think it becomes more child-driven (setting goals and all that). We are already planning on having a meeting wi...

Re: Tithing Settlement and how bishops report it

Last year my husband had to manually mark every active and partially active member of our ward, whether they came in for tithing settlement or not. He was able to see when/how much each member donated if he had not met with them first. He had to make judgement calls then. He a little uncomfortable ...
