Re: Missionaries in the Time of Pandemic

This experience got me thinking back to my own missionary Christmas which was actually one of the best Christmases I ever had (sounds sad, but it was really an awesome Christmas with 8 of us who were great friends all celebrating together). https://wheatandtares.org/2020/12/23/a-missionary-christmas...

Re: Missionaries in the Time of Pandemic

Arrakeen: GOOD suggestions. Too bad the Church doesn't take suggestions. I was surprised because during the summer, before we moved, the missionaries weren't allowed to come inside. Our cases are WORSE now, not better (AZ was 4th worst state in the nation last I saw), and suddenly they are allowed t...

Missionaries in the Time of Pandemic

About two months ago we moved across town. We are in a new ward. We don't know any of the neighbors. We finally met the bishop & counselor, and the RS pres stopped by unannounced, and we didn't hear the bell, but she left cookies and a handwritten card. We've been to Church once since moving, but th...

Re: Is StayLDS at its end of life?

I've found that I forget to check in here more than about once a week anymore. I am a little more active in the online groups, although even there, I am less involved than I used to be. Mostly, I just feel like I like the people in these groups, but without Church going on, there's not much to discu...

Re: Would you ever intentionally lie?

I told my daughter that if a bishop ever goes on some kind of prurient fishing expedition with her in an interview, she should know that he is a perv and not someone in whom she should confide. I advised her the best thing in that situation is to give him the simplest answers that will get him to ba...

Re: Leadership seems anti-mask - Church guidance isn't anti-mask at all

Our current SP is a doctor, and we are not resuming meetings yet. Everything is still on line. When we do resume, he has 7 pages of very clear, mandatory guidelines, and yes, masks are absolutely required, along with very stringent requirements on social distancing, no singing, and how sacrament is ...

Re: NAACP, the Church, and modern race relations

I've been thinking and reading a lot on this topic. In short, the Church would like credit for being against racism, but they are equally against eroding white privilege, facing their racist teachings, and doing anything that might go against GOP principles. https://wheatandtares.org/2020/06/17/i-th...

Re: Plandemic, conspiracies, and faith

Heber13: Yes, I did that post before the Plandemic video came out. It was kind of weird, but right before that, there were a bunch of podcasts talking about conspiracy theories, and I was seeing some things in FB and Twitter that seemed driven by conspiracy theory mindset, that knowing wink about wh...

Re: Plandemic, conspiracies, and faith

Before "Plandemic" I blogged about conspiracy theories that really seemed to be bubbling up recently: https://wheatandtares.org/2020/05/06/mo ... -theories/
