Re: For What Do You Pray?

My prayers are a combination of hopes, requests for support, and self fulfilling prophecies. Examples: I pray that our home can be a refuge and protection from the illness that is infecting so many. I pray that we can be patient and supportive with each other as we are forced to see each other so mu...

Re: Church statement on vaccines

I am seeing lots of pictures on Facebook of President Nelson getting the vaccine. Once again, I am thankful for the example that he is setting in this area.

Re: Is StayLDS at its end of life?

I too have wondered how to get announcements to people that are not present in sacrament meeting. I have seen some other churches use billboards, sandwich boards, Pamphlets, Flyers, or websites to get the word out. We as a church are not as good at doing that. My ward does have a Facebook page and I...

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

"This generation" likely means "dispensation" from the perspective of the team that wrote the manual. That word isn't in D&C 5. I think dispensations is an idea we built up to legitimize the restoration, give people the confidence that the church won't fall away, and to elevate JS to the likes of M...

Re: Bishopric Youth Interviews

Honestly, I think my family is 1 step away from being a "rescue family" if they ever get around to it. But rescuing a family where the head of the household who never shows up but has a testimony, and the family members who show up contribute on their own terms muddies the waters considerably about...
