Re: Setting Goals

Is it offensive to me that they simply won't leave me alone about how important jogging is and how wrong stationary cycling is? That they impose the one solution fits all program on everyone? I would say that is it. I think you hit the nail on the head. The offense comes from the one-size-fits-all ...

Re: Talk help - Book of Mormon

The nice thing about the Book of Mormon is so much of it sounds like many parts of the new testament and gospels. :) Matt is quoted...teachings of the beatitudes. The allegory of the tame and wild olive trees in Jacob 5. God works with his people and weeps. More the weeping god than vengeful god. 3N...

Re: Setting Goals

Too often in the Church, we make poor connections between behaviors and desired outcomes. I think this is one of them. Are they saying that people that do not attend SM all the time should feel guilty about going to the temple and that the guilt should increase SM attendance. I believe the two may ...

Re: Setting Goals

Great comments. Funny you bring up weight loss as the analogy...I was talking to my wife about that this morning...and frankly...I'm not bought into it right now. I know I need to lose 20lbs, but it isn't like it is urgent. I SHOULD lose weight...but I'm also ok where I'm at and the level of effort ...

Setting Goals

My HPGL wants me to lead a discussion tomorrow in 3rd hour council meetings on the topic of how we can achieve our goal to have 150 people attend sacrament meeting by increasing temple attendance. Any ideas for me? How do you feel about goals and how would you suggest it be approached? We can't pres...

Re: Joseph Smith wasn't actually a Polygamist...

I wasn't there and anyone with an agenda can fabricate a historical record. All we have to go on is history written by the church, which could very well be fabricated or embellished. yes, that is possible. But I think it helps move past some faith crisis issues to try to find the facts as we know t...

Re: Crisis / + Teaching New Mormonism

I think that is a very personal ministry...which is the way it should be. You have to ask their thoughts, fears, ideas...have them share what they think or what they are stuck on, or what pains them. And then you go from there. I think there are so many different directions it can go...and what make...

Re: Josh Weed is divorcing

I pick up the vibe that the word "divorce" is thrown into the story...and everyone says..."aww...that is SO sad. Those poor children will be scarred for life." But...it isn't sad because the family ends in divorce. Divorce is not a solution, nor an evidence of failure. It's a choice to handle things...
