Re: I am Sam (the brother of Nephi)

I think I definitely am a Sam. I am one of those that gets along with almost anybody. It has served me well at work as I am a manager and often get the "trouble cases" that are fun.

I guess "Sam I am", but I do like eggs and ham (bacon that is) even if someone put green food coloring in them.

Re: October 2014 General Conference

I want to say that SWK said something to that effect. Actually it was someone's father. They said, "my dad said he never went to a bad sacrament meeting. If the speaker was poor, he just thought with a positive outlook how the talk could be improved." But I have to say have to admit taking conferenc...

Re: Forget priesthood — some feminists seek a middle way

As I have studied church history, I can't see how others can make that statement when the Relief Society, Primary, Welfare, the Word of Wisdom have all "started" by individuals asking or doing. It is almost like they are saying, "revelation ONLY comes from the first presidency or quorum of the 12." ...

Re: Dehlin's interview with Brent Metcalfe on MS

I have listened to all but the last segment. There was something in the title that made me feel like, "wait until you get into a better frame". Kind of along the lines of, "don't drink too much of that at once or it will pull you down." The last thing that really got me down in the dumps was reading...

Re: Why Do We Hate/Dislike Them So?

I consider myself a rather compassionate person and ever since I was small I remember automatically trying to put myself in other people's shoes - think of their perspective. But I am a bit with Mom on this wondering why TBM's (sometimes) get under my skin. Most of the time I am content to just see ...

Re: New Essay on Polygamy! (update, a 2nd one posted also)

I hope I am not being the guy who walks up to a circle of friends and starts trying to dominate the conversation. It is just so nice to be able to converse with others that are on the same general level. I really could have used this forum a bit over a year ago. If I am overbearing, someone send me ...

Re: New Essay on Polygamy! (update, a 2nd one posted also)

I appreciate what the Church has done and I think they did a good job, but knowing more about the history and having read a lot more about it, they chose to highlight some things but not others. There are still some gaps. Agreed. It certainly keeps people from being able to say I have just been loo...

Re: How to Minister to those with doubts

Sunbelt, I think it is good that you are thinking this through a bit before jumping - even if your intentions are good. I am thinking of doing something the same with my stake president. I am in a bishopric right now and my bishop is very supportive of more of these issues being discussed from a fai...

Re: How to turn a coversation

I have gone as far as put some quotes from General Authorities in the tablet that talk about the subject that might offer opposing views from the narrative in the lesson. Of course, I don't have it there to bash with anyone, but to possibly offer another view similar to the approaches that Ray poin...
