Re: April 2018 General Men's Session

This isn't a criticism, I'm really trying to understand the need for this change. If combining the Elders & HPs is good on the Ward (rank & file) level, why isn't it good on a Leadership level? Bishopric, Stake Presidency, High Council & General Authority. And why do we need the office of a Seventy?...

Re: LDS Church Survey

I'm not sure where they got my name. If it came from FamilySearch (for example) the "net" would include non-members as well as
members.

Re: LDS Church Survey

What were the questions like? Even though the Church would NEVER do it, I'd be interested to learn the results of the study and planned course of action. "Question #1. Will you pay tithing on your compensatory gift card?" The questions were typical survey language: - Age - How do you identify yours...

LDS Church Survey

Today I got a survey from the Church, asking my opinion about a wide range of topics. Some of the questions dealt with religious & spiritual views & opinions. Other questions dealt with my views about education, preparedness & practical issues. It took about 30 minutes to complete. They are willing ...

Re: A Quasi-Funny Comment (in a sorrowful way)

Amy, the good news in your comment is: We were talking about stuff - quasi church stuff and just stuff. In my frame of reference, that is huge. As a side note: I am open & transparent about my personal finances to the church as they are (to me) with their finances. I don't go into any details at yea...

Re: Different Perspective on Prayer

I hope this isn't too far off the topic of this post. I wonder sometimes if God wants us to struggle with the affairs of this life & the choices we make before he chooses to give comfort or answers to our prayers. For example, my oldest son recently completed a Master Program with the ultimate goal ...

Re: Being safe at Church.

This poor guy was just trying to do the right thing for someone in need. He works on his own & is far from "rich" in material possessions. He became reactivated 2 or 3 years ago. I haven't had the guts to talk to him about it yet. I will when the time is right. My point in this discussion is: our ac...
