Re: Two Hour Church

3. You need fewer teachers now. People only have to teach twice a month rather than four times a month. This leaves more people for other callings. You could even put your best people into teaching positions and still have more people available for other work in the ward. Taken with combining the p...

I don't get why Elder Holland was going around saying, "You had better have your testimonies strong before conference as it will be test your faith".
He doesn't want members to have a patty-cake, taffy-pull experience.

Re: Elder Uchtdorf as Medicine for Elder Oaks

I didn't watch conference, I purposely avoided it this year, I don't know what exactly was said but it's not hard to guess what Oaks likes to talk about. One talk I can ignore or grit my teeth and muscle through, but I'll tell you what's hard. The only, and I mean the only talk that I've seen people...

Re: Having troubles getting to my YSA ward

I also am not your typical Mormon, either. I struggle. I struggle with my faith, I do things I probably shouldn't do. I have a struggle with pornography, I sometimes go purchase stuff on Sunday and I drink energy drinks :o *GASPS* I know, I know it's not that big of a deal but with the LDS communit...

Re: Supposed Blizzard of Changes coming at General Conference

"The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square" That's unfortunate. When Nelson reemphasized the name of the church months ago I was under the impression that there was going to be an effort to recenter the culture on Christ. No "Christ" in the latest of the the church's relabeling of things so I've got to ...

Re: Supposed Blizzard of Changes coming at General Conference

Yeah... I'm not sure "more onerous" is the direction missions should be going.

Re: Supposed Blizzard of Changes coming at General Conference

dande48, While reading your post I couldn't help but think, the church needs something more to hang its hat on than authority. Or is that the principle role of the church? Help people find comfort in having authoritative answers, authoritative ordinances, authoritative beliefs, etc. Is it the church...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

I was just thinking out loud, trying to take something as I see as a negative (great, now people are going to get onto me for saying Mormon) as something that could change the culture long term as something that could be a net positive for some. We correct people so much, make sure they say church o...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

I thought about posting this in the rumor thread but I'll post it here. In my ward, the Sunday after the announcement we dedicated a large portion of PH to discussing Nelson's desire to use the proper name of the church. Mormons gonna Morm and all but a part of that discussion was letting the group ...

Re: Supposed Blizzard of Changes coming at General Conference

My wife brought up the two hour block rumors yesterday. She said, "I don't see how it could possibly work. I mean, the first half hour of relief society is taken up just by announcements!" That's a regular PH opening exercises thing too. But... 1) Most of the announcements were made during SM. I gu...
