Re: Handbook Highlights from John Dehlin

As a whole I like the change, and I was surprised by a number of them.

There still is needed change in some areas, especially those dealing with sexual identity, but this is a huge change in some ways I didn't expect.

Re: Stake Teacher Training - Primary, R.S., Y.W.

I like that focus a lot.

I have said for a long time that we don't "honor" all parents much in how we work with youth - especially inactive parents.

Re: My New Calling: Sunday School Lesson Recaps

I focused today on 1 Nephi 19:23 where it talks about likening things unto ourselves. I used Lehi's vision of the Tree of Life as the central example, since I was gone two weeks ago when that would have been the lesson. We took the first few minutes to read the likening verse and talk about what it ...

Re: Stake Conference

I've had some excellent stake conferences and some really bad stake conferences - and everything between those extremes. Roulette is real. Why do we do it?

I should add that I made a point of whispering, "Thank you," to him as I gave the tray back to him - and after the meeting I made it clear to him how much I appreciated how seriously he took the responsibility. It is important to reinforce those things that inspire or move us - with anyone at any age.

Re: Mary Magdalene movie (2018)

It sounds interesting.

I like alternative histories, as long as they are reasonably logical and not too fanciful. What you describe fits that category.

Re: Another idea for what it's worth.

Personally, I have no problem with it - as something done outside this forum for anyone here who wants to participate. I also wouldn't have a problem posting a link to it here - again, as long as it was set up outside our forum and was not affiliated with us in any way. We can't do it as an official...
