Poetry Corner

I love poetry, maybe to an excessive degree. So while preparing a talk this week on Faith and Hope, I read through 3 collections of poems on faith and inspiration. A few struck me more than others, as is usual. And some seemed like they could fit the audience here. I wanted to share them and hear if...

Re: This is a dumb question. I'm going to ask it anyway.

I don't know the exact process, but yes. The RS is in charge of dressing women for burial, the EQ is in charge of dressing men. Unless an endowed family member wants to perform the service. I was in the presidency but never was asked to assist, although we had a few sisters pass away while I was in ...

Re: Are all religions the same?

My signature here is a truncation of a quote from the Dalai Lama that I really love and describes my understanding of how religions relate to each other. It may offer something to you as well. All religions share a common root, which is limitless compassion. They emphasize human improvement, love, r...

Re: Jana Reiss' - Millenials/Church Changes

A couple thoughts from a resident "Millennial" here. First, a reminder I like to offer when people start categorizing us. The initial article referenced does specify Millennial and Gen Z. Please do not forget, in 2021, there will be 40-year-old Millennials. We aren't exactly "young whipper snappers....

Re: Old Wine, Old Skins, Old Everything - 5th Sunday

Happy to... CAVEAT: I like doing this activity because a) it gives me social cover (even though I don't think the work is necessary), b) it is helping people out who like family history, c) it is free in terms of financial cost, d) the kids can run around, e) I feel useful, and f) no crowds to worr...

Some thoughts from travels

It's true: the church is the same everywhere. In particular, the wifi password. No translation is used for the wifi in France, at least. This allowed me to "commune with my father" via WhatsApp while seeking a more spiritual version of that phrase on temple grounds. Another interesting thing I learn...

Re: Old Wine, Old Skins, Old Everything - 5th Sunday

I skipped church to go to the farmer's market. On the way back, I saw that the neighboring Episcopal Church was having an after-worship luncheon with a bouncy castle and a sno-cone truck. I considered stopping by. They provided some very needed support last summer at a time when I needed it, and I f...

Re: Misquoting Scripture w/o Context

I used to get very upset by this, and it still can frustrate me. But over time, I came to realize that, as Jedi said, even in context most scriptures are open to multiple interpretations. What I still get frustrated on is when the ambiguity comes from the selected English translation. This is not th...

Re: New LDS hymnbook

They didn't do a very good job publicizing it. I remember when the survey was first announced, it was some music-geek friends who shared it on Facebook. I wouldn't have known about it otherwise. I think I'll take it again. I've taken it twice already. I had long lists of songs to add or keep, and fe...

Re: Youth Bishop Interviews

Personally I think the best answer to the question is "That I have no sexual relations with anyone to whom I am not legally and lawfully wedded," but of course most being interviewed for missionary service have likely not heard that exact wording (although Elder Bednar affirms we can certainly teac...
