Re: Omni 1:2-3 = Passing It on Is Enough

That is my favorite book in the BoM. I love the idea of leaders being too busy living to stop and pontificate. Passing it on, really is enough.

Re: Excommunication hurt membership in long run?

In my neck of the woods no one knows about the excommunications. We are far enough away for it to not hit the radar screen.

Re: Pants

Slightly thread jacking - I hold a Stake calling. From day 1 I have worn slacks/pants to every meeting. I purposely chose not to wear jeans or shorts. I have never had any pushback, and I conduct the meetings with Stake leadership in it and everything. Last month, every woman was in pants, a couple ...

Re: Bill Reel about to get excommunicated? >:-(

If Bill didn't record it* - which I totally believe, then Bill shouldn't have aired it. For me Bill's own twisting of the events such as the High Council member who said the church is dishonest, but then in the recording, it didn't come across the same way, - adds to his dishonesty in the process. I...

Re: End of YSA SS

But I am hoping with this change in policy, people will start to realize there is nothing wrong with being single, nor should anyone rush to tie the knot with "any worthy member". On all these changes I am so looking forward to cultural change potential in them. One of the most messed up things, IM...

Cool High Council Talk

I won't run it verbatim, but our High Council speaker gave an excellent Christmas/Christ centered talk. The key part was his opening. In short the following. https://www.livescience.com/32891-why-was-christmas-banned-in-america-.html Yes, the word paganism was spoken from the pulpit in Sacrament Mee...

Re: Can We Just Get On With It

The ward council decided that the hour and a half after church would be designated as "sacred time". No one is supposed to contact anyone else in the ward during that time so that everyone can focus on studying That should be a fun one to police. Double bonus, it goes against Elder Bednar's Confere...

Re: Can We Just Get On With It

but fun? It's like early release day from school. It's more than just one hour shorter. It's more like half day. You do the basic stuff for an hour every week, then you have alternating other hours. For me, I am only sitting in class on the 2 and 4 weeks. The other day is hall mingling. This is whe...

Can We Just Get On With It

The four month waiting season for the 2-hour block and all things attached to it is wearing thin for me. I don't think I can take one more meeting, class or conversation about it. Just do it. President Kimball would be pleased. By the time we finally get to it, it won't be any fun.

Re: How can I help divorce?

Ask him if he wants to hang out. Getting dinner or going to a movie once a month. Stuff like that. A divorce hurts worse than death. He may even reject offers at this point. If he does, just keep saying hi. Depending on how comfortable you are, you could ask him directly if there are ways you could ...
