Re: Change to Garment Question in Temple Recommend Interview

My initiatory freaked me out a bit (back when you were near naked and people touching you in ways that was not sexual or anything, but made me very uncomfortable). So I never went back and did them again. So what exactly is said there? (if anyone feels comfortable saying)

Re: My Intro

I might suggest you join the facebook group "marriage on a tightrope". It is a group setup for marriages with one believer and one that no longer believes. There are a lot of good conversations on how to navigate a "mixed faith marriage." It would be good if your wife were to also join. They try to ...

Re: Kirby is the best

I won't comment on the Trib itself other than I sure hope they survive. Kirby was talking about how Lavina Fielding Anderson was part of the September 6 for her writing (among other things) on exposing abuse within the church. She to this day attends church. She requested (or should I say her bishop...

Re: Understanding a Faith Crisis...

I have read the David Ostler book and it is GREAT. It needs to get into every church leaders hand.

If you want a preview he has done 3 interviews that I know of on podcasts: Leading Saints, MormonLand (SLTrib), A thoughtful faith podcast, and Greg Kofford Books Authorcast.

Re: The Big Universe

Most of my TV watching is on space and the universe. I feel tremendous awe when watching these. I just can't seem to get anything close to that feeling with church and teachings.

Re: Ostler's Bridges: A great review

In reading AmyJ's response, I feel compelled to clarify my "trust" comment. I do not feel that the top church leaders are evil and I hate them. I actually have some sympathy for them as there are some serious issues for the church and if I was fully a believer and in their shoes, I would be torn on ...

Re: Ostler's Bridges: A great review

I am really looking forward to this book. It rings true what the recap says. Trust top leaders - 99% shot for me. Local - some good, some not so good. Belonging - I fit the mold and generally get along well and have tons of friends at church. This and my wife being "in" is the only reason I attend a...
