Re: Chapel Mormonism

The center of my faith is not the church. It's Jesus Christ. The church is a vehicle I use to hopefully draw closer to JC & to establish human contacts. I use the scriptures, (some) of the General Conference talks & personal revelation or inspiration. In terms of church, I take what I can use & lea...

Re: No more time only marriages in temples

I actually see this more as a move by the church to begin getting out of the marriage business because if we're not doing weddings we'll never be able to be "forced" to do gay marriages (which I don't believe is really on anybody's agenda anyway). I think eventually in the not too distant future th...

Re: Timing of Christ's appearance to the Nephites

I think most of us do exactly what OON suggests and mentally compress that timeline. The aforementioned muddiness doesn't help us not do that. Maybe not on exactly the same scale as "What!? Joseph was a polygamist!?" but nonetheless something that most have believed all their lives and have been ta...

Re: Timing of Christ's appearance to the Nephites

Thank you guys so much! I've got to admit that I have a really hard time reading the Book of Mormon, and what you both pointed out was something I've never noticed.

Timing of Christ's appearance to the Nephites

I was thinking about something the other day and starting wondering about something I've never really considered before. If Christ's visit to the Nephites came immediately after the three days of darkness that accompanied His crucifixion and if -- as I presume -- He spent a significant amount of tim...

Re: Richard's Rohr's 3 Stages

The following is a relevant quote that has been discussed here in the past: We are like sailors who must rebuild their ship on the open sea, never able to dismantle it in dry-dock and to reconstruct it there out of the best materials. Where a beam is taken away a new one must at once be put there, ...

Re: Richard's Rohr's 3 Stages

I still haven’t found a way for the broken pieces to fit together. Sometimes broken pieces are just broken pieces. I am solidly reconstructing but at a place where it's looking pretty good. From the pile of rubble that was my faith I reused some in my new faith. There are some new parts that weren'...

Re: TR, Goals, & Tithing

It seems to me, more and more all the time, that a temple recommend is being required for all sorts of things other than admission to the temple. I would even consider letting mine lapse, except that I probably wouldn't be able to continue in my calling at the jail. I think of it as my jail recomme...

It's hard to recall all the talks and they haven't posted a listing yet but from memory.

Saturday morning: Gong, Stevenson, Uchtdorf
Sunday morning: All talks except Nelson's

It's a good start.
Yes, it's definitely a good start. Thank you. Has Elder Holland spoken yet?
