I see what you're saying, but the questions that I wish I could ask in GP aren't deep doctrinal questions. They're questions and doubts about mormon-specific doctrines at a very basic level. Thinking back to specific topics that I had a hard time sitting through: Priesthood, Temple Marriage, Tithing, Missionary Work, Eternal Families, Gathering of the House of Israel. These are all topics in the GP class that made me uncomfortable, even at the most basic level. I sat through them, not saying anything, but wishing I could. Most of the time, I prefer GP over GD. But, GP still has certain lessons that bother me.Heber13 wrote: ↑08 Dec 2017, 11:38HC...don't you kind of think also that the level of thinking you are at is really hard to address in a 40min class anyway? I'm not sure exactly what are some examples you might have or think of...but it seems to me like things like "Polygamy" or "Printing Press" are of specific detailed church history stuff...those aren't really in the GP class curriculum.
Years ago, I attended the Temple Prep class to break things up, and had the same problem. I understood the material, but couldn't really ask questions because there was a new family in the class getting ready to go through for the first time. I talked with the bishop and the teacher about the possibility of taking the class on my own, so we could talk about some of the deeper stuff. They both thought it was a great idea, and planned for it after the current set of lessons was done. But, when the next session restarted, I went into the class excited to have some real conversations, and they had invited another member to attend who was just coming back to church and starting to prepare to go to the temple for the first time.
