Re: How to Achieve Results in Low Commitment Wards

For me, I would relish the low commitment. Seriously. Hold a few required meetings. Then I would go about being joyful and happy. Everyone gets released. They can get someone enthused if they want.

The results won't change.

Re: Spiritual Thought

Thank you Amy,

I have been displaced from my work room for the year and completely forgot about my Richard Rohr books. Thanks to you I am digging them out again. And yes - that paragraph alone has so much impact on me.

Re: Scouts of America

What kills me is we just had the Friends of Scouting Fundraiser a month ago. Letters read over the pulpit and so on. We are barely a scouting church anymore, but the BSA still got money from us. (Not my family personally. We haven't paid in years.)

Re: Ouch - No church internet.

On the church boredom side of this - it's not just us FC people who are bored. I spoke at a Stake Conference a few months back. This means I can see everyone from my seat. We had a visiting Pastor from a local church. He spoke for 15 minutes. Everyone was listening, smiling, attentive. After him, it...

Re: Good things that happen at church

The Gospel Doctrine Teacher and I were on the same page together, TWICE. I don't Gospel Doctrine during the Mormon years - BoM and D&C (It's not church history, no matter what they call it.) But I pop back in after the Book of Abraham/Creation section and hang out for Old and New Testament. Our teac...

Yeah - You may have to make a choice. I am so sorry. If it were me, I would tell my son first. He needs to know. As to your friend the Bishop, I don't know. These crisis are the worst on so many levels. Again, I am sorry.

Re: Kids don't know, oldest to go through the temple before mission. HELP!

I am a mom who did suck up and do the recommend event. Now in fairness my daughter knew that her dad wouldn't come nor support her. They had some tense harsh conversations but each honored their truth and they are still connected. My daughter knew that I was no longer traditional, but that I love ma...
