Re: New Sunday School - Not.

One other thought. This isn't a knock against the current instructor, but I was hoping that with the new curriculum we'd get a new instructor as well. Really drive home the fact that this is a shift. By keeping the same instructor, the overall approach didn't change, so it's more business as usual, ...

Re: New Sunday School - Not.

I will say this much - at least the new Sunday School has us talking about Jesus again. Granted we're back on the New Testament and I worry what will happen when we move out of the gospels and more especially what will happen when we move off the New Testament. I agree that it's too large. I've foun...

If veils don't "veil", they aren't veils.

Just saying.

Why Can't the LDS Church be open like this?

Re: Worldwide Devotional

This distresses my husband because of the numerous teachings he has had to the contrary at church. He also feels that I "am not praying sincerely enough" or "studying the scriptures sincerely enough" which leads to a prideful state where God won't talk to me (and I need to "repent"). It doesn't mat...

Re: Holding Past Actions Against People and Organizations

If the Internet didn't expose our history and the church's whitewashing thereof, would they have been up front about it out of free will? So, while I'm not burning up with hate about it, I guess I still hold them accountable for that because in the heart, I am not sure they have actually changed at...

Re: Rome Temple

Don't call the church "Mormon." Rename everything. Get rid of it. Even the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Perfectly fine to put Moroni on top of all of our most sacred places.

Is it okay to brand on something other than Christ or isn't it?
