Re: Southern Baptist Convention Shift

I believe Jimmy Carter left his Southern Baptist routes a few years ago because of this one sidedness. He was most offended by how they treated women.

I am so curious to see what other tides get moved because of this.

Re: Same-Sex Families Being Added to the LDS Church's Family Search Database

The double amazement to me is that the Deseret News published this diddy. That alone says something is on the move. Sometimes it is so hard to be ahead of the pack. Ah.

Re: Two Hour Church -- Rumor or Work in Process?

Sam I am with you on this Two hours is not unusual. Other churches sometimes have special services which last longer. Two hours or an hour and a half with linger longer attached. Very common place. And that special, seasonal, services last longer. But not week after week. Running into the mundane. I...

Re: Two Hour Church -- Rumor or Work in Process?

I am voting wish. I have heard people of all stripes wishing for it. Even missionaries. They find that people can't fathom 3 hours of church in one sitting. Other churches have an hour in an half at the most. The reason I believe it's rumor has more to do with no one guessing ahead of time that HT/V...

Re: What does it mean to council?

Re: What does it mean to council?

Silent Dawning wrote Back in JS's day, I think the common men had a disdain for academics. I suspect the academics were also arrogant given the lack of access to education, and the status they enjoyed. I think some of this disdain made it into the BoM "translation". I see Joseph Smith as wanting ac...

Re: The Divine Role of Jesus Christ

For me Christ is role model. He did things, according to scripture, that I can do to make sense and purpose of my life. I can pick so many scriptures to support that. For your class though, they are looking for something more transendant. It's the God connection. The Redeemer part. If it were me, I ...

Re: Good Sunday Experience

Amy - three cheers for a good Sunday. On the Relief Society Deal - we discussed Pornography for the 18th time. I wish Sister PornWatcher would fix her problem. Not for her sake, but for mine. I really am weary of Porn discussions in all their forms at church. This week it boiled down to people who c...
