Re: New Sunday School - Not.

Home church can still give people all those opportunities but yeah, church church isn't going to do a whole lot of validating. We just have to be content with our progress privately. :smile: This does creates an issue though. If I feel like I need to remain silent each Sunday I don't have a voice. I...

Re: New Sunday School - Not.

I'm thinking bigger wards have an even bigger issue with this. A ward I visit often has more than twice the attendance we do and likewise only has 1 GD class all crowded into the chapel (although I haven't been there for SS since the 2 hour block was implemented). I agree, I'd be all for 25 or less...

Re: New Sunday School - Not.

One other thought. This isn't a knock against the current instructor, but I was hoping that with the new curriculum we'd get a new instructor as well. Really drive home the fact that this is a shift. By keeping the same instructor, the overall approach didn't change, so it's more business as usual, ...

Re: New Sunday School - Not.

I will say this much - at least the new Sunday School has us talking about Jesus again. Granted we're back on the New Testament and I worry what will happen when we move out of the gospels and more especially what will happen when we move off the New Testament. I agree that it's too large. I've foun...

If veils don't "veil", they aren't veils.

Re: Worldwide Devotional

This distresses my husband because of the numerous teachings he has had to the contrary at church. He also feels that I "am not praying sincerely enough" or "studying the scriptures sincerely enough" which leads to a prideful state where God won't talk to me (and I need to "repent"). It doesn't mat...
