Re: Is StayLDS at its end of life?

I can see how that can be frustrating Sam. As I said my ward has a Facebook page but that's not the only way to get the announcements. That's because I live in a rural area where some people don't have internet access at home and we also have some Luddites in our ward. Fortunately our leadership un...

Re: Come, Follow Me D&C: 2021 January

Thank you for starting this thread. D&C is by far the dryest part of the scriptures, unless one counts the more legalistic parts of the OT like Leviticus. During a lesson, would it be appropriate to try to create some space for people to arrive at a different conclusion? For example, "Some people fe...

Re: Church statement on vaccines

There are legitimate concerns about the vaccine such as the speed it was rolled out and so on. Or who is making money off it. Or the fact that this is not a traditional vaccine at all. I am not anti-vaxx in the usual sense, I have been vaccinated for a number of things in the past - off the top of m...

Re: Is StayLDS at its end of life?

How are you forced to use Facebook? Just asking, I don't understand. Our ward has a Facebook page but that's not the only way to get announcements or information. I like cats too, but not so much cat videos. It's gotten worse since lockdown. Before I used to sit in church, hear all the announcement...

Re: Is StayLDS at its end of life?

I've probably said this before, but I FAR prefer this format to Social Media for a variety of reasons. There is a much better atmosphere on here and I find it easier to search through and read. I concur. I don't do social media for that very reason. I'm forced to use Facebook by the church. I have ...

Re: Bishopric Youth Interviews

I have to admit I would not be comfortable as a mature man asking little girls about pornography. I think if I was a bishopric member, I would practically insist to have a parent/guardian present. However, I do appreciate children are being corrupted by it at a very young age. It greatly sorrows me ...

Re: How do you know a FC is over

A shorter answer: when you stop thinking about it.

If you don't think about something for days on end it's probably no longer an issue for you

Re: Are we the church of the WoW?

We had an investigator in our ward who went through painful headaches when withdrawing from tea. Personally speaking, it gives me insomnia, and for that reason alone it would be wise for abstain the day before a temple trip, because our temple bus tends to leave at 7 am. 😄 I have cut my caffeine con...
