Re: Single Women: You have Priesthood Authority in Your Home

I understand everything just said - but I also understand this particular truth has NEVER been said so openly and directly prior to that 2014 talk. Sure, the motivation might be to avoid ordination, but it also might be to soften ordination in the future. After all, there were quite a few "softening...

Re: Ex-Bishop Up for Disciplinary Council Regarding Minor Interview Outspeak

If his objective included the complete elimination of Leader-Youth interviews, probably not - at least not in the near future. In a real way, that would be like pressuring the Catholic Church to stop having priest-member confessions, even though there are obvious differences.

Re: Why Do You Stay?

I love what I see as the pure theology.

I love my tribe and am grateful for the acceptance and foundation it gave me.

I am geared toward reconciliation and cooperation, not diviseness and fighting.

My family.

Re: Ex-Bishop Up for Disciplinary Council Regarding Minor Interview Outspeak

Nobody here has said people should never speak out and challenge. What we have said is that there is a line that is impossible to erase once it has been crossed - so if your desire is to continue to work in a supportive role from within to facilitate change, don't cross the line. I try to be very ca...

Single Women: You have Priesthood Authority in Your Home

The visiting 70 at our Stake Conference yesterday, Elder Brian Taylor, said in the general session, to the best of my memory: "Single mothers and single sisters, I want to tell you that you have Priesthood power and authority in your homes. Elder Oaks said so in a General Conference talk recently. L...

Re: She Preached The Word

Fwiw, the visiting 70 at our stake conference mentioned Elder Oaks' talk from 2014 in which he said endowed women have Priesthood power and authority in and of themselves. I told him afterward I was thankful for that reference and that I would love to hear that talk repeated in General Conference - ...

Re: Saturday Evening Stake Conference

Ministering - but done in an excellent way. Focused totally on Christ-like service and not letting ourselves get lost in our daily planners. Great discussion on the parable of the 10 Virgins, with one person questioning why the "faithful" women didn't take the time to look around and help the "fooli...

Re: The Bay of a Thousand Names

An awareness of self in relation to time is uniquely human. That alone means we are uniquely eternal.

It fascinates me.

Re: Ex-Bishop Up for Disciplinary Council Regarding Minor Interview Outspeak

The early church was extremely volatile. That might be an understatement.

Just saying. :smile:
