Re: Is Sacrament Meeting being held anywhere but Utah?

My ward has started - with very strict rules and only 45 minute Sacrament meetings. Recorded music is being played, with no singing.

Sunday School is being held online.

Due largely to my job, I won't be attending. Extreme care is mandated for us.

Anything by Chieko Okazaki. (especially "Lighten Up!")

She was one of my favorite general authorities, and her writings are wonderfully focused on spirituality.

Re: I Need Support

Have you tried medicine to help you sleep?

I have a close friend for whom OTC medicine works and another friend who has a prescription. For them, nothing else worked.

New York Trip

My wife and I will be in New York City the first week in September. We will not have a car. We would love to meet anyone who lives in the general area or can get there at some point that week.

Send me a private message if you are able and want to get together at any point that week.

Re: Coping With Previous Sexual History of a Spouse

Thanks for the additional input, mfree6464.

Psychology is fascinating, and it can help us understand a lot of things more clearly than "the natural (hu)man" is prone to understand.

Re: Just how necessary is all this?

The level of necessity varies from person to person. I don't say that flippantly or dismissively. I think it is an important point. Some people need things other people don't. Some people, especially those who are alone or in unhealthy situations need it desperately, while, for others, attending is ...

Re: How will the Church change in light of the Covid Virus?

A friend said on one Facebook post, "I will wait and see what the prophet says."

I responded, "He already has spoken. We closed church, and even temples, completely before most other churches."

It "helps" that the Religious Right has preached end-times apocalyptic signs of the times in divisive terms for the past 30-40 years. My and my parents generations were baptized in conspiracy theory rhetoric, and the Religious Right has invested savior-esque qualities in politicians who pander to th...
