Re: The legend of the Northern Lights

Nice thank you for sharing!

My first thought was there were going to be bears along the journey, eating the salmon as they swam up the river. :problem:

Re: 11-Year-Old Deacons and Beehives

He said something to the effect of all the changes are pointing toward the end of what he called "casual membership." Exactly. I see it as the old way wasn't working so let's make the 'requirements' more broad and open. Lose the rigidity. And I see ministering as only more when more is needed, and ...

Re: How can I help divorce?

It's going to be a long process, but lots of good advice so far. Be a friend and allow some dialogue, it will be 'emotional vomit' as I've heard it referred to where all these emotions and turmoil come to the surface. But after a while it's best to stop talking about it, after some healing (weeks mo...

But so far all the changes have felt like they are making church less burdensome, which is welcome.
This is the way I felt, like the church was making a change to fit better with the times. Yet many in my ward felt like they were being asked to do more, and they welcomed the challenge.

Re: Maintaining and building relationships

I'd like to know as well, the first thought that comes to mind is I need more time to have friends these days. We have friends that are active and less active, we just don't have time to go do things with them. Maybe it's priorities, but raising kids and grandkids takes up a lot of time. Pretty much...

Re: Been holding cards very close to vest.

Welcome to the forum, it's great to find people where it's safe to express doubts and frustrations, get some advice, etc. We're all icebergs here in a sense that we only see these little bits of each other's views, but I can say it's helped me tremendously to have a sounding board. Thanks to everyon...

Suzuki points out again and again how Zen itself cannot be contained in a religious or dogmatic form. I like the id...
