Re: Has hastening the work become a gospel hobby?

Thanks for that reminder Ray. I often lose sight of that.

Re: Has hastening the work become a gospel hobby?

I had my meeting. I hate to even report but at the same time I do feel that open discussion is often cathartic. I mentioned my concerns that it felt like we were perhaps making HtW too much of a focus. How I really felt for our investigators and worried about what their perception of the church migh...

Re: Facebook and other communities

I'm not a fan of anything overly religious on FB and I don't like anything relating to politics at all. More often than not there's too much contention associated with religious and political posts on FB so I try to set myself apart by refraining from either topic. I don't think I'd participate in a...

Re: Asking for an autograph from a 60?

Ha. I remember being mortified once when my mother attended a sacrament meeting and took a picture, complete with flash. Now I can laugh at myself.

I'm sure the spirit of the policy is to maintain reverence.

Re: My intro -- Trying to figure out Mormonism on my terms

Welcome to StayLDS. Just like DarkJedi I can say that we have a lot in common. I joined the church in college and would later serve a mission. One key difference was that I didn't explore anti material because at that stage in my life anti material was just pamphlets filled with vicious lies. I do n...

Re: Just need some feedback..

The hoaxed metal things are the Kinderhook Plates, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinderhook_plates The greek book was the Greek Psalter. You've listed all the issues that many of us have had (and still have BTW). I'm a convert, I've seen my fair share of churches and my extended family belongs to a d...

Re:

plus WML has been swapped out for the "ultra tbm" yes man of the ward Maybe our unit will follow suit sometime soon. I am grateful that in my ward the emphasis is on loving our neighbors (both inside and outside the church) and then let other opportunities to share come where they may . I was discu...

Re: How to handle tithing in a split family

Yes, my situation isn't too dissimilar. I suspect every couple in our situation comes up with a different way to go forward. I've read a bit on the site and have seen that there's quite a spectrum of what can be considered a full tithe, especially for people in our position. One train of thought whi...

Re: Standard Works as "Binding"

Standard works binding? The soft covers hold up surprisingly well. I've found that the ones with the simulated leather cover don't last very long, the spine separates from the pages and they fall apart. The binding on the genuine leather scriptures will separate a bit at the front and back of the bo...

Re: Has hastening the work become a gospel hobby?

The Sunday before last was 5th Sunday and I was asked to use the time to talk about our unit's upcoming missionary goals. Investigators were present and I really felt for them. They got to see a lot of sausage being made that Sunday.
