Re: I Bear My Unorthodox Testimony to my Teenage Daughter

I didn't know about Justserve.org. I looked it up. It is good that the church is trying to help people find service opportunities. They create a platform where organizations can post volunteer needs. Are they promoting this site to their own membership? (Us?) Or are they simply hoping the world wil...

Re: I Bear My Unorthodox Testimony to my Teenage Daughter

That is the egocentrism of the church at work and it has crept into the attitudes of my family. Listen carefully at church, and to the attitudes of many members when they talk about service. It often has to do with items that serve the church. Even community service projects can appear to be a hass...

Re: A childs question nobody could answer.

Certainly because in the Millennium it will all be sorted out and those who could not do things now can do the extra credit necessary to get a passing grade. But if you could do in now and do not,well then you are in a heap of trouble. I'm sorry, but this can't be true. This seems to be the normal ...

Re: I Bear My Unorthodox Testimony to my Teenage Daughter

I'm a bit confused here.

Are you saying that your family, and church for that matter, doesn't like it when you give service outside of the church?

Re: My Ward

Thanks for making me laugh. I know I don't have to serve to have a temple recommend. I am thinking of going to another ward and I am wondering if I do how to get my TC and pay tithing if I stop attending my home ward. Where do you volunteer to do scouts at? You're welcome! Pay tithing through the h...

Re: The Ensign...

Oh, the rescue. I just love the rescue. This is where it takes some practice to understand when people are faking it and when they are genuine. I'm OK at it, but could be better. Usually when members invite us to dinner it is to feel us out and see if they need to "help get Jay" more active. I go, d...

Re: My Ward

where do you pay your tithing This one is easy. The church as this electronic payment method that you fill out a form, then send payments from your bank to the church. It is great to keep prying eyes from how much you donate. Funny Story: my last tithing settlement was hilarious. When we went in to...

Re: The Book of Abraham

Thanks for this discussion. I remember the first time I realized that the church leadership were just men who woke up and put pants on in the morning, just like the rest of us. It was an odd experience, but still one to remember. This was well before I had my falling out with the "spirit". It is goo...

Re: My Ward

I have tried to be patient with my ward. I am at the point I just want to move. It isn't possible . The ward members fight over just about everything. I have never been in a ward like this. My husband finally got a home teaching beat. His partner has set appointments and won't work with my husbands...

Re: What would have to change?

Here are my 2cents on your suggestions. B. Portray realistic views of local and current leaders' rather than the supernatural views talks keep emphasizing. This will prevent loss of faith when leaders invariably act like mortals with weaknesses. Agreed! Though, I quit doing this many years ago. I re...
