Re: Fall General Conference 2021

Ok. on to some more positives.

I like brother Wilcox. His talk on repentance and change was good.

I have also heard that President Nelson's showing the original foundations of the Salt Lake Temple was cool.

Re: Fall General Conference 2021

I did hear Oaks on Saturday. Seems they've noticed that some of us realized we don't really need to go to church to be spiritual (thanks COVID). I agree that it isn't about entertainment, but as far as I'm concerned it should at least be uplifting. Yes, he seemed to be saying that for anyone that i...

Fall General Conference 2021

This thread is for discussing General Conference. My primary purpose for creating this thread is to know which conference talks are great, which are ok, and which should be avoided. The only talk I have seen so far was from President Oaks yesterday. He was talking about the need for a church and why...

Re: How do you stay when you don't believe?

It also might be important to add that some days may be harder than others. Part of this may be you and the things that are happening in your life. Maybe you are tired, or hungry, or stressed and are just not in a good place mentally or emotionally to deploy effective coping strategies. Another part...

Re: BYU Housing Rule Change

That last reference in the previous paragraph actually happened to one of my kids. Full story, he lived in a small complex close to campus (very close to the infamous stairway). The place was really kind of a dump, tiny rooms, six guys crammed into 3 bedrooms with a teensy living room and kitchen b...

Right, it doesn't seem to fit but I thought I would ask around. ;)

I haven't believed in a long time (she knows this) I am however a Biblical Christian
Perhaps to summarize my response, you clearly do believe. You just believe differently. When surrounded by dogma that I do not personally believe, I find it helpful to look for value, usefulness, and goodness.

Re: How do you stay when you don't believe?

Yesterday for home-church my 13 yr old son had some questions. The topic was about Why bad things happen to good people. It was posited that God is All loving and All powerful so why does evil and suffering exist. My wife asked me to talk with him when I got home from work. I also wouldn't say I don...

Re: I am moving -- new Ward syndrome to deal with

My wive was a full TR holder, but then, with the pandemic, she has grown casual about church. We don't talk about it much because my less activity used to upset her. So joint less activity is not hard to implement... Ok then, this would be my strategy. 1) take a little break from church until the w...

Re: BYU Housing Rule Change

From what I have read regarding this change it is a good thing. BYU students do not need to be babysat. I have also heard that this is unfortunately bad news for non-BYU students currently living in BYU approved housing that will now be required to find somewhere else to live. One commenter on the f...
