Re: General Conference Thread

You did miss the best quote by missing the first speaker (Soares).

Paraphrasing, but I loved it. I was not super focused on the talk quite yet. But related to "lost sheep" he clarified: "They are not lost. God knows exactly where they are and how they are doing."

What to carry with me

Hi, I've been lurking here for a little while after my mom encouraged me to look over the site. After my Dad left the church over a decade ago, I have spent time renegotiating how I relate to the church. In full faith, about 18 months ago I took up the honestly-getting-old-and-meaningless challenge ...
