Re: Talk on Service

I agree. What a great subject to be able to speak on you have so many examples of service from the scriptures in the life of Christ. One of the things that appeals to me most about scouting is the opportunity to be able to do so much service, service projects, and be able to him a service oriented m...

Re: Dating "policy" in the family.

We had to vary the rules per the child like most everyone else said. Some kids aren't interested some are too interested. Be open and blunt if you need to, but communicate a lot . Getting them to communicate is another story, but it sounds like your daughter has a good head on her shoulders. I respe...

Re: Marriage troubles

So clearly I'm not going to get the help I'm looking for from this forum. I posted this hoping to get some help to save our marriage. Instead, I'm getting a whole bunch of people trying to convince me of the lie that divorce is okay. I can tell you I'm certainly not going to go to a therapist if th...

Re: John Dehlin Facing Excommunication

There were plenty of people that had left activity and were not living the law of chastity that were never disciplined because they weren't interested in repentance and weren't making a splash about being mormon and immoral. Small point. Good point as well, I wonder if some people get to the point ...

Re: John Dehlin Facing Excommunication

I read through all of your comments since my last, with varying emotions and thoughts. Thank you all for the input. My heart aches over the possibility of his ex'ing. I have come ti the feeling that if he is, i will reserve quick judgement. Nothing usually ends well from rash decisions and assumptio...

Re: Giving a talk on Scout Sunday - help?

And why don't we have Girl Scouts in the church? Do you want the Sunday School answer, or my blunt 1 word answer: "sexism" Lol at first, then yeah, I've thought that myself. Because BSA creates self sufficient men who are conformists. GSA creates lesbians who self-perform abortions. This is nearly ...

Re: Giving a talk on Scout Sunday - help?

Wow, excellent examples! Sorry I came in on this one late. Sounds like you've got enough to run on, the entire scout law, motto, slogan, oath, and even outdoor code can and should be framed into a Christ centered mindset. Scout Sunday. My only gripe is that scouts should be able to wear their unifor...

Re: John Dehlin Facing Excommunication

Newbee here again. Lurker extraordinare. JDs podcast really helped me through some difficult times, and added some difficulty as well. Looking back, and re-listening to MS podcasts, I noticed his evolution from one who was doubting/searching and non-biased. Some of the later episodes it was apparent...

Re: utterly ridiculous

I believe that women will be punished for their own fashion faux pas and not for Eve's totally last year's fig leaves. :lolno: That was a great one! I don't have any great suggestions other than you are the minority voice of reason, and speak your mind anyway. Of course do it in a tactful way, if y...
