Re: I'm Thinking About Becoming More Active In Church

Thanks, AmyJ. It makes a little more sense what you're talking about this time. Hahah. I liked what you shared about how you feel about Charlie Brown Christmas now. I still enjoy it from time to time, though. One old animated I like to this day is Rudolph The Rednosed Reindeer. It's interesting how ...

Re: I'm Thinking About Becoming More Active In Church

Roy, thank you for the comments. I agree. Last week, I joined a writing group in my small college town that writes and critiques short stories and poetry. I'm good friends with the woman that runs the group, and it was great to get back into a writing group to take part of its activities. Our next m...

Re: I'm Thinking About Becoming More Active In Church

Just wanted to mention that I went to church finally. A good friend of mine that's the ward mission leader gave me a ride to and back from church. I work with him anyway since I have a calling as a ward missionary. I'm friends with his son who's only a year or two younger than me. He's a bishop now,...

Re: Churchwide 5th Sunday lesson on missionary work

Nibbler, thank you for sharing the post. I had no idea about the worldwide discussion. I've scanned it briefly. In my understanding, since the church is a missionary church, more often than not, the church leaders, particularly the General Authorities, have stressed for young men to serve missions s...

Re: I'm Thinking About Becoming More Active In Church

That's a good point, DarkJedi. I know we're all guilty of doing things wrong because we don't know to do. Even the ancient prophets did lots of things wrong even if it they weren't the same things that the modern ones in the church are guilty of now.

Re: I'm Thinking About Becoming More Active In Church

Thank you for the comments and advice, everyone. AmyJ, I agree with you that everyone has spiritual gifts that are needed in their own ways. Being patient with members that believe differently than me definitely can help. Even with the leader worship and some of the harmful teachings against the LGB...

Re: I'm Thinking About Becoming More Active In Church

Sustainability through boundaries. Thank you very much, Roy. With everyone you said, that would probably work for me. It's just difficult at times in the work with so many members and leaders that are so fully in that equate, or seem to, equate everything with the Lord. Drives me nuts, but then eve...

I'm Thinking About Becoming More Active In Church

When the COVID hit hard last year, I stopped going to church, as a lot of people did. Since the COVID is more under control now, I've been praying lately, and it seems that God wants me to start going back to church. Although my faith has become more nuanced over the years, and since I feel comforta...

Re: I am slowly becoming depressed about attending church...

Minyan Man, I glad you posted this because I'm planning on going back to church myself. I was inactive the entire time the COVID was in full swing, but I have a calling as a ward missionary that seems attention. Luckily, I'm good friends with my ward mission leader who's a very kind, laid-back man. ...
