BYU Magazine

Post by hawkgrrrl » 24 Apr 2014, 14:49

This article just came out giving parents help on how to handle it when a child or ward member has doubts. It seemed pretty good to me, particularly considering the source.

Wow, that is great! I can almost feel the winds of change stirring in our chapel.

I shared this on Facebook because I thought it was a good article and it also is pretty safe considering the source.

church 03333 - Yes, I think that's an important part of the church's maturation process (meaning the members) - having more links to items like this from LDS based sources.

An excellent article, thank you for sharing. I really like the "Destigmatizing Doubt" section and the "Do's and Don'ts". I think every member of the church should read this.

I agree that every member should read it. Unfortunately the number of members who actually get the magazine is relatively low. It's up to us to share the link!
In the absence of knowledge or faith there is always hope.

Once there was a gentile...who came before Hillel. He said "Convert me on the condition that you teach me the whole Torah while I stand on one foot." Hillel converted him, saying: That which is despicable to you, do not do to your fellow, this is the whole Torah, and the rest is commentary, go and learn it."

Yes, I would like every member to read this but I expect there will always be some members that disagree with it.

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.

Thanks for sharing, hawkgirl. I actually bookmarked the link when someone on Facebook posted it.
