Re: Have you seen this happening in your region of the world?

I have heard of it. I would 100% agree that this isn't the same issue as within the catholic church. That seems to be much more about the church knowing priests were sexually abusing kids and they just move the priest to cover it up. The issues I have heard about are much more like the issues within...

Re: Oaks' recent comments on LGBT+

More of the same. Yep.

I have heard that he is probably motivated by legal fears and is trying to make it so that the church has a legal leg to stand on if someone in the future wants to sue the church in some of these areas.

Oaks is going to Oak.

Re: Change to Garment Question in Temple Recommend Interview

I don’t live close to Utah and I run into ward members all the time in their “gym” clothes at ALL times of the day – even when the gyms are all closed. Whatever. But then again, we did have a bishop that loved to run and he would run shirtless in the neighborhood when it was hot. Amen on people focu...

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.
