Re: What is your reaction?

I liked your reply! Mine would have been similar, only more directed at the offender. Would have been something similar to: Oh, Sorry, do you want me to close the door on you? But then again, probably wouldn't catch me holding the door for very long anyway. I would have caught the next guy's eye, th...

Re: Deseret News on Immodesty

Just to be clear. It seems that immodesty is a women only issue. I have never in my life been told that I'm dressing immodestly. Leering at women appears to be the male side of the coin. So... women are asked to help control the problem by covering up and men are counseled to control their eyes and...

Re: Deseret News on Immodesty

hah hah hah... This is great! So, I've been 2nd counselor in the YM before. When I would see a YM dressed inappropriately at church, I would look at the Deacons. If their eyes drifted, I knew what to do at priesthood. I would hit the subject head on. There was only one way to take on the subject of ...

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

Do you think this "serve where placed" model creates more good in terms of personal growth and acheiving the church's mission simultenaously than an approach that provides more choice on the part of the callee? (I realize we have a choice to say Yes or no, but I think most would agree it creates a ...

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

Church = yes ... same as everyone above has said. Me = Hell No! I accept and deny callings as I see fit. When I accept them, I follow the rules that are written. If it ain't written, it ain't a rule. For example: The 11-yr old scouts has a rule regarding 3 camp outs a year. Most interpret that to 3 ...

Re: Hello...

I have a friend who was raised very mormon. He started to drink and went off the deep end with it. It got really bad. Do you know who saved him? It wasn't his mormon friends. ...(disclaimer, I was across the country and didn't know he was having problems)... It was his friend from work who knew how ...

Re: More overtones to Pres. Uchtdorf's talk

I can accept the argument that priestcraft is ministering for personal fame and glory, and involves a business model. Now, I have a follow-up question. Although Bishops and SP's are part-time, they give a huge amount of time to the church and have responsibilities for essentially, a little "Company...
