Re: This Is Gospel - Panic! At The Disco

Symbolism I see from the video: 1. Surgery he doesn't seem to want. [Being raised in the church feeling like he didn't have a choice. People trying to fix him when he doesn't feel broken.] 2. Baptism in a coffin. [The deadening feeling of just conforming to doctrines and practices that he's grown ap...

This Is Gospel - Panic! At The Disco

This is an interesting one. So I listen to Spotify while I work, and depending on my mood I'll listen to anything from classical to country to rock. Just yesterday one of the Panic! At The Disco songs in a playlist of mine came up, and I decided to click on the band's name and see what they've done ...

Re: Do we have a "Serve where placed" model of service?

For those who are unquestioning or those who question but hide it to avoid making waves, we have more of a "Serve where placed model of servitude."

[Addition]: Law of consecration feeds into this.

Re: Todd Christofferson addressed crisis of faith issues

Wow, it took me an hour to get to the end of this thread, but I did it.

I would just like to add one thing:
3) We don’t have all the answers.
What would be more meaningful to me is an admission that the answers we think we DO have may not all be right. IMO these are two different things.

Re: Do we have a "Serve where placed" model of service?

I had a TBM recently explain their take like this in an email (listed below, followed by my thoughts.) Church callings keep us serving. They give us a reason to be there. It is not that it is an unwritten law, but it is a necessary one for most of us. In our church, we don't have paid professionals....

Re: General Conference October 2013

Elder Nelson: (Sunday afternoon session) We spent the entire day on Sunday over at the house of a couple we are close friends with. We watched all of Sunday conference there. In going through the comments, I didn't see anyone mention this talk, so I thought I would mention it. You may want to skip i...
