Re: Fall General Conference 2021

I find that I'm getting less & less from General Conference. We are facing a world wide pandemic & very little was said about it. The US just passed all other countries in the number of cases & deaths from this virus. (Say it with me, "We're number one".) In the mean time, I have members of my own w...

Re: I am moving -- New Ward Syndrome to deal with

How do you propose a person manages the transition with a new crop of priesthood leaders in a new ward? Lie low until they reach out to you? Be proactive and meet with the Bishop to lay it all out on the table (where I stand, what I'm willing to do, not willing to do, etcetera)? I would love to mov...

Maybe that was a big part of my transition was letting go of life needing to be a certain way, and just rolling with what it was, not making it fit into how I thought it should be.
That is an excellent point Heber13.

Re: Three Questions

Do you know who you are? I am an average member of the church who has gone through a family crisis that developed into a spiritual crisis. I had a problem reconciling my thoughts and expectations with what I was taught at church. Because we were "fully" active, I expected that God would answer our ...

Three Questions

I have been recovering from a surgical procedure. The process is slow & painful. As a result, I spend a lot of time in front of the television. One of the programs I watch is a medical drama. The title of one episode was "the three questions". It dealt with the trauma center or emergency room of a m...

I will admit, it's a no-win situation for the church. Accommodating one group alienates the other.
Yet throughout church history, there were times when they took the risk to declare a "true" gospel principle or
spiritual belief.
