Re: How is the new ministering program going?

While I'm not in leadership, I do find it funny that once HT was scrapped, my surprisingly active home teachers stopped visiting (after months of visits). I looked in the directory and found out that I am no longer assigned anyone, but my wife is. Super interesting as we seem to still be confused an...

Re: What is there left to change?

The one change that I have scoffed at as being utterly ridiculous is a relaxation of the WoW. The only persuasive argument I see is that it is a huge block for winning new converts (although not as big an obstacle as chastity, and I don't see that going anywhere). So maybe on that premise there cou...

Re: What is there left to change?

As I was reading through this post, I was wondering, Is there a downside to some of the changes? Has the Church membership been able to absorb & understand the changes made to date? Are they ready for the BIG ones that maybe coming in the future? For some, this is a BIG test. I saw on facebook a lo...

Re: Atonement

I somehow stumbled upon a gem of a talk that supposedly was given a decade ago concerning the atonement. It consisted of very deep thinking including the intelligences talk that has been mentioned previously. Im unable to attach it to this reply so let me know if anyone is interested in it and I'll ...

Re: What is there left to change?

I'm certainly not asking the church to create programs just to keep 25-35 year olds busy, but it sure feels different once you're a real adult and have a family to care for, and are making choices that you feel benefit your family that otherwise would be viewed as straying off the path. That's prob...

Re: What is there left to change?

My husband stays at home with our children and I go to work. It works for us for right now on a lot of levels. My husband is currently studying history - which has helped him realize where "big government" came from (among other things). He didn't share how big a deal it was for women to gain the r...

Few thoughts in response to some others. Back when priesthood and relief society were broadcast on lds.org I found myself watching the sister's as well. And my mom would watch priesthood with my dad and i. So I learned quickly that the gender separation was more cultural and focused on separate res...

Re: What is there left to change?

I would applaud separating temple sealings from civil marriages I could see serious changes to Seminary. I also could see more explicit focus on service missionaries. I would like to see seminary be a remote, online thing to get around the headaches associated with early morning. I was involved wit...
