Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

I maybe shouldn't but I started laughing inwardly once when a new member started bearing his testimony of the Church of Mormon and how he believed our bishop was a true prophet. He had what we charitably call learning difficulties and is a bit of a character. Going back a few years right enough... ...

Re: Saturday Evening Stake Conference

Our SP tells us that all adult sessions of SC everywhere are going to be about ministering this half of the year per the Q12. We had ours a couple weeks ago, Elder Acosta came. We keep getting the big namers. We must be doing something naughty and no one's told me yet. Dang. Anyway that was the mes...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

I just walked in and read dande previous comment. ^^^^ I have been out with Pastor's from other faiths all morning. Everyone of them kindly asked what church I belonged to. I stuck with LDS. Everyone of them was "What's the deal with the name thing." The effort to explain it derails any attempt to b...

Re: Very good post about "what I wish Mormons knew about those that leave"

Three weeks ago, I attended an Open Stories weekend seminar. Even though I am a middle wayer, I really struggled with the pain both sides are experiencing. Both sides are equally guilty in my opinion. For years the believing camp has painted a picture of leavers that is discourteous to them. They ar...

New Members of YW and RS boards Announced - Big Step

We talk about water running down the rows, these women may become more tsunami than water. I like these choices on a million fronts.

Re: Ex-Bishop Up for Disciplinary Council Regarding Minor Interview Outspeak

Just when I think my soapbox platform is solid - some TBM topples me. My husband has a co-worker who is devout as the day is long. At the end of the day the co-worker stopped by my husband's desk and said, "You know a lot of church stuff, right?" Husband said, "Yes." Co-worker, "What's the Sam Young...

Stake Women Leaders on Dry Council Sunday

We don't have High Council Sunday monthly. It appears to be bi-monthly. I have no idea why. The past two sessions - we had one High Council Rep and one Woman from Stake Leadership. Each time they had a meaty topic. This one was the Atonement. The previous one was Covenants. In the past sometimes wiv...

Also, different policies have different levels of importance. Many people have been patiently waiting for the day of 2 hour church but the change is not imperative so we continue to patiently wait. Concerns over safety of children is a different matter. Children are being harmed while we wait for t...
