Re: Two Hour Church

Elder Cook said the following: "Our purpose is to balance the church and home experience to increase faith," Elder Cook said. "This new shift will help our members focus on deepening conversion to God and Jesus Christ, strengthening families and individuals through home study, staying focused on th...

Re: Two Hour Church

I don't get why Elder Holland was going around saying, "You had better have your testimonies strong before conference as it will be test your faith". I want to revisit this. Not a fan, I think it's manipulative. I'll employ hyperbole to explain. Only wicked people that have rejected the spirit of g...

Re: WML position disappearing?

I believe it's optional and entirely up to the BP's discretion. The way it reads to me is that an EQP counselor would assume the duties of the WML (coordination meetings with the missionaries and ward missionaries mostly). If the BP feels it is necessary they can call someone to serve as WML, but it...

Re: Two Hour Church

3. You need fewer teachers now. People only have to teach twice a month rather than four times a month. This leaves more people for other callings. You could even put your best people into teaching positions and still have more people available for other work in the ward. Taken with combining the p...

He doesn't want members to have a patty-cake, taffy-pull experience.

Re: Elder Uchtdorf as Medicine for Elder Oaks

I didn't watch conference, I purposely avoided it this year, I don't know what exactly was said but it's not hard to guess what Oaks likes to talk about. One talk I can ignore or grit my teeth and muscle through, but I'll tell you what's hard. The only, and I mean the only talk that I've seen people...

Re: Having troubles getting to my YSA ward

I also am not your typical Mormon, either. I struggle. I struggle with my faith, I do things I probably shouldn't do. I have a struggle with pornography, I sometimes go purchase stuff on Sunday and I drink energy drinks :o *GASPS* I know, I know it's not that big of a deal but with the LDS communit...

Re: Supposed Blizzard of Changes coming at General Conference

"The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square" That's unfortunate. When Nelson reemphasized the name of the church months ago I was under the impression that there was going to be an effort to recenter the culture on Christ. No "Christ" in the latest of the the church's relabeling of things so I've got to ...

Yeah... I'm not sure "more onerous" is the direction missions should be going.

Re: Supposed Blizzard of Changes coming at General Conference

dande48, While reading your post I couldn't help but think, the church needs something more to hang its hat on than authority. Or is that the principle role of the church? Help people find comfort in having authoritative answers, authoritative ordinances, authoritative beliefs, etc. Is it the church...
