Re: I had a heart attack: Reflections

I am glad you still are with us, my friend. That is a scary experience. Thanks for your perspective and for sharing it with us. I am old enough to consider this, especially since my own father died at 19 years older than I am now. It also is likely I will die before my wife does. I am not scared of ...

Re: Me as I think I am

Publicly calling most leaders greedy (or, at least, making that strong implication) in front of their "subordinates" (I hate that term, just to be clear.) will make them angry - even if it is true, and, perhaps, especially in that case. i understand, agree with, and respect what you said, ...

Re: "Poor Wayfaring Stranger" Interposed With "The Good Samaritan"

Exactly. I gave a talk in church years ago about charity and used this parable to make that point directly. I essentially said: "Whom do you see as so sinful that you would cringe if you had to associate with them? What if they walked into the chapel in the middle of the sacrament? Someone who ...

Re: Interviews

I was asked on the phone while on vacation this past week about a new calling. I did it over the phone. It helped that they wanted to announce all the changes in W...

Re: I had to read this article title regarding the church supporting same-sex rights twice

[Admin Note]: InquiringMind made a good point. If this is not framed in terms of staying LDS and, instead, is merely a political post, it is not appropriate for this forum. If it is about staying LDS, and if is discussed in that light, it is appropriate.
