Re: Asking to be released...

Maybe you don't need a release. The benefit of a leadership calling can be delegation. Get organized to assign teaching to ward missionaries or full time missionaries or even members of the class on a rotating basis. I used to have a sign up sheet for all lessons and asked for volunteers and when th...

Re: Advice is just that: advice

It takes a maturity level to grasp that idea, I think, and not use it recklessly. But I believe God wants us to develop our sense of discernment to choose for ourselves despite the advice of others, and own our choices. When we don't know what to do...the advice of others can help us. But at some po...

Agreed. It is definitely where you can make a difference, regardless of church doctrines and creeds.

Re: JS Bible translation

I've thought the church was wanting to look like other respectable christian churches and believe in the KJV as it is, and believing there is more in addition to it. But, maybe we'll be better liked if we share bible beliefs.

Re: Bargaining - FC 5 Stages of Grief

Remember the star fish story?? The old man can't seriously make a difference when thousands of starfish keep washing up on shore, but maybe makes a difference to the one or two he reaches, and maybe makes a difference to his own heart, right? Maybe your desire to make change just requires the right ...

Re: Asking to be released...

Leadership roulette comes into play - some people in leadership don't like suggestions/ideas from those they are leading. But I am 90% certain that if you come to the table asking to be released without providing anything, the leader's radar will ping and you will be under observation for potential...

Re: Time's Up

The church literally limited if not took us out of each others lives except at stake priesthood meetings not literally. You made choices. One thing you may need to adjust is what you choose to do at church and what not to. It is a buffet, not an all or nothing church, even tho some might suggest it...

Re: Time's Up

To me it sounds like you have endured it as long as you could. It is what it is and not really changing for you. You can keep doing what you are doing, or you can choose to try another way. Neither choice comes without pain. You just choose the least pain and look for growth and new experiences. I h...

Re: If the theme for the year is keeping the Sabbath day holy, what are we doing wrong?

I'm guessing it is about commitment levels. The thing they probably notice the most is when people don't attend church, because...well...they see they aren't there or are skipping 3rd hour or other things which make it hard to hold meetings when people aren't there or are not doing their callings. S...

Re: New First Presidency of the church

All of the problems I have with the Church can be boiled down to this. When so much emphasis is placed on the spirit guiding and directing the church and leaders and even personally to find truth....this is kind of a scary thing. How to rely on the spirit for things...what is the spirit and not. It...
