Re: I am speaking in church on Sunday

Wow, great topic, as it fits so well into what we all discuss here. You've got a wealth of information here to peruse, I think if I had that topic I would go over faith, hope and belief, and the subtle differences between them. Then I would add in faith evolution. Maybe a bit of the iron rod/liahona...

Re: Not Before Possible

Do any of you have any experiences where you are now able to react/accept/interact with differently than you have before? Do you attribute this new ability or process to something specific? All the time now. I had a very rigid mindset before and I think it kept me actually from feeling the Spirit. ...

Re: Swinging

You may be referring to Richard Poll's talk on What the Church Means to People Like Me. Yes that's it! Thanks for posting the link, that's one that I've wanted to revisit but didn't remember where it was at. I'm one of those that is partially an iron rod and liahona member at the same time on diffe...

Re: The Church as the man with palsy

Thanks that was some good insight Roy. I don't see myself fixing the Church either, I talk of changing it from the inside but this is a way of coping with things I know I probably have very little overall effect on. It's a melting pot of imperfection from the top to the bottom, with a caveat that th...

Re: Hello from California

It seems the more I study, the more confused and conflicted I become. For now, I'm in the process of making my pro's and con's list in the hopes that I will be able to stay in the church, on my own terms. It is so difficult having to question and rediscover literally everything I've ever been taugh...

Re: I need help.

Metakrain, you've got some good advice so far and you're in a great place to ask questions. It's been a great outlet for mw. Thanks to everyone on the site. Nibbler said taking each phase is important. It was for me, from non-believers to TBA to evolution. I shelfed a lot of stuff before I joined, a...

Re: Do any of you drink coffee?

Congrats lookinghard, it's a struggle as we all get older to be healthy. What's healthy? Certainly not the buddy bar that I ate for breakfast. But I agree, there is double standard? with keeping the WoW and yet on the other hand being way off in some other area. Hawkgirl, what's a normal Mormon fami...
