Re: Friends of Scouting Phone Call

FWIW, Friends of Scouting money goes to the council, not the local troop. Most of the membership doesn't know this. I didnt, even after I was SM for a year or two. I do donate a portion that I think is fair, our council is doing a pretty good job. But yes, when I was in charge of the FOS campaign, ...

Re: Tipping Point

Black and white thinking, all or nothing mentality. I have a lot of little ones, dealing with power hungry people, self righteousness, those that demand.

Pinpointing the start of faith issues

I have had discussions with DW about faith issues, and the question came up as to what started the questions in the beginning. and trying to put into words these thoughts and why they are and what they are is difficult, I know bits and pieces of my faith evolution, but pinpointing experiences and sp...

Re: Taking notes on talks

I have never taken notes on talks. There are talks given in sacrament meetings that were so good that I have thought about them for many, many years after. Over time the details have slipped from my memory. I wish I had taken notes. I'll jot something down that strikes me, but I don't write while t...

Re: Kirby does it again

I'm sure there are many who would argue the Salt Lake Tribune is not a Mormon themed newspaper. Maybe I should have said a newspaper that comments a lot on Mormons.

Re: "Through a glass darkly"

Re: Basics of the church. What do you believe.

To "define God" is to pigeon hole the e...
