The Chosen

Has anybody else here watched the series, "The Chosen?" The first season has been out for a while, and the second season is in the works. It took me a few episodes to get into it. At first I was kind of turned off by the bad fake accents and mediocre acting of some of the characters. But, once I got...

Re: Missionaries in the Time of Pandemic

(This really can work me into a frenzy if you can't already tell.) I completely understand. Nothing wrong with being careful. Admittedly, I probably don't take the pandemic as seriously as I should. It's interesting to hear about the restrictions in some of your areas. It sounds like restrictions i...

Re: Missionaries in the Time of Pandemic

My thoughts on missionaries has changed quite a bit over the past few years. I used to avoid the missionaries like the plague, for many of the same reasons (no referrals, no desire for their message, didn't want to become a project, etc.). Over the past couple of years, we've had the missionaries ov...

Re: How to respond to missionaries

Meeting with the missionaries can definitely be awkward. I've had a similar experience this past month. Every week for the past 6-7 weeks, we've been finding goodies showing up on the front porch from the missionaries. Cookies, brownies, candles, etc. always with a little spiritual thought attached....

More temple ordinance changes

Sounds like there are some more temple ordinance changes coming soon. Any guesses? I have a few hopes: no more separating men from women during endowment, no more 'tokens,' maybe some updates to the endowment clothing... It's been so many years since I've actually been, I don't really have a vested ...

In the last hour 2 or 3 people have asked on Facebook "Are we having regular church?" - Hmm.
I'm guessing attendance will be down for a while... which means I won't have to get there as early to get my favorite seat!

Re: Church Disavows Dark Sin as a Curse

I don't know why we can't go the route of saying Nephi was a product of his time, held racist views, attributed some of his racist views to god and later his thoughts became scripture that many used to justify racist/stereotypical views. But Nephi is kind of like Joseph Smith in that regard. The an...

Re: Church Disavows Dark Sin as a Curse

I'm glad to hear that this is being removed from church manuals. I'm sure it's a topic that church leaders would like to distance themselves from. It's pretty easy to find old talks from previous church leaders making all kinds of racial comments that would make people squirm in their seats today. C...

Re: Teaching about the iron rod

Thanks for all the feedback! This helps! Just to clarify, this isn't a required program that was pushed by the ward. They didn't sign assign every family to a group. They asked everybody whether or not they would like to be involved. I wouldn't have signed up for it, but my wife wanted to do it. Abo...
