Re: The Church & the Coronavirus

No question, almost all American and Canadian missionaries are coming home from foreign countries. It is a huge undertaking because not only are they coming home, many of them will be reassigned to complete their missions here while other will be released early. Non-native missionaries in many othe...

Re: The Church & the Coronavirus

One thing I hope changes is the practice, at least around here, of not using any cleaning chemicals when the church is cleaned. I have volunteered to help clean in the past and was always a little horrified they never sanitized the door handles or anything. The senior missionary couple that lived in...

Re: COVID a sign of the last days?

It's more than just the virus. We've heard about (or felt) significant earthquakes in recent weeks, and locusts are ravaging eastern Africa. Antying else I've missed?

You mean they won't be preaching to the choir?

however, no one is authorized to administer the sacrament.
I have to admit I am disappointed by that.

Re: The Church & the Coronavirus

I received a message from my bishop that they're looking to organize small sacrament meetings to be held in members homes. Is this happening elsewhere? Who thinks this is a good idea?

Re: We can't get married

Like I said earlier in this thread, I have only heard of one case where a couple was sealed when they weren't married in this life. We watched a movie a year or so ago about one of the handcart companies that had a lot of trials on their journey. I can't recall the name of the film or which company ...

Re: We can't get married

There might be an interesting development going on this week. MJ's daughter (27 y/o) was assaulted by her boyfriend. Since then MJ's "ex" has been staying at her apartment. There's a possibility that he might not really live here again, but I'm not holding my breath yet.

Re: We can't get married

Sometimes I'm a little blunt, and sometimes I think things just need saying. I do disagree with your bishop although as someone already pointed out more than 99% of the time two people of the opposite sex living together are doing the do. But that's not the only thing keeping you from going to the ...

Re: We can't get married

Fascinating. What brought me here was the stillbirth of our third child. I had thought that my children would be blessed protected because of my faithful dedication to the church. I also discovered that it is unknown whether my child counts as a soul (united spirit and body), if she will be resurre...
