Re: Help on a talk

I found this snippet from Elder Uchtdorf that he said at a CES: “The invitation to trust the Lord does not relieve us from the responsibility to know [truth] for ourselves. This is more than an opportunity; it is an obligation – and it is one of the reasons we were sent to this earth. Latter-day Sai...

Re: Word of Wisdom: The next change

As much as I would love to see a change to the WoW (or at the very least, specific clarification from on high) I have my doubts about it happening. Like it was said before, it's such a huge part of our cultural identity and is often pointed to as Joseph Smith having knowledge beyond his time. I don'...

Re: Can We Just Get On With It

And it goes against the similar advice we received about not programmizing it. Guess your ward council didn't get, didn't read, or didn't understand the memo. But on the positive side, I'm fine if nobody contacts me all day. An hour and a half is a start, but if you really think about, the whole Sa...

Re: Can We Just Get On With It

By the time we get to it, no one will be whooping it up on the short end. Leaders in my ward are already being a buzzkill about it. The ward council decided that the hour and a half after church would be designated as "sacred time". No one is supposed to contact anyone else in the ward during that ...

Re: How can I help divorce?

Ask him if he wants to hang out. Getting dinner or going to a movie once a month. Stuff like that. A divorce hurts worse than death. He may even reject offers at this point. If he does, just keep saying hi. I second this. I've never had to deal with a divorce and I never plan to. But I do know that...

Re: Been holding cards very close to vest.

Hi Codependent :wave: You have found a great place to be. I haven't been here long, but I've greatly enjoyed and benefited from getting everyone's thoughts and experiences. People here really seem to be honest, helpful and understanding. On the other hand I struck up a conversation with a co-worker ...

Re: He totally changed sacrament meeting

Yesterday at church, I was reminded of this thread. Our bishop made an announcement that the Sunday before Christmas, all of the talks would be on Christ and to be sure to invite someone. I was glad to hear it, but I couldn't help but think, "Shouldn't it always be like that?" I know there times I w...

Re: Ward treating us like we're inactive?

Question to throw out there? How should members of the Church treat the inactive, less-active, or those like many of us who aren't "all-in" in a traditional sense? For me, in a perfect world, I just want simple pleasantries. A nice little, "Hi, how are you?" is all I really want. Nothing more. If a...

Re: Ward treating us like we're inactive?

Just think of it another way - it's positive that they went out of their way to invite you personally. Don't take the "glad to see you" thing to heart either - they're trying to be friendly, and there's nothing wrong with that. I take it you don't have HT or do it. That would be seen as a marker of...

Re: Faith promoting stories

When I was in the MTC, I was talking one on one with a teacher there. He went on a long spiel about faith and healing. He claimed that if you had faith, ANYTHING could be healed. Just like that. All it took was enough faith and the priesthood he told me. What he didn't know, was that he was talking ...
