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 und...

Re: Church statement on vaccines

I'm also glad the leaders are setting an example. I consider it somewhat a blessing that I am in "phase 1" because of my occupation because I want to be vaccinated and I want to get back to the "old" normal. Where I live (rural liberal northeast US) the church crowd is fairly compliant with masks, e...

Church statement on vaccines

It was news yesterday that apostles over 70, including all of the FP, were vaccinated for COVID19. (I was also vaccinated yesterday, I am neither an apostle or over 70 - or am I? :P ) The FP also issued a statement regarding vaccines yesterday ( https://newsroom.churchofjesuschrist.org/article/churc...

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

But I don't think they can have it both ways, in how they use "generation". D&C 5:9 ...I have reserved those things which I have entrusted unto you, my servant Joseph, for a wise purpose in me, and it shall be made known unto future generations; 10 But this generation shall have my word through you...

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 think it sounds as thought your kids' interviews went about as well as they can. The preparation part you did was key to the success IMO. I don't have minor children at home now (our baby is a returned missionary at BYU) and they were youth before the current option to have a parent/adult present....

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

Re-reading/scripture insight: Can't argue with that and I think many of us have had similar experiences (and perhaps not just with scriptures). Regarding our imperfections and repentance, I think Joseph is a great example of one who demonstrated true repentance. I think in the church it is so common...

Re: Richard Bushman interview

There is also a Mormonland podcast of the Bushman interview. It's about 37 minutes long and offers some additional insights and details about stuff discussed in the article (including cosmopolitanism and the "one true church" idea).
