What to Expect in This New Calling

I was set apart as Ward Clerk last week. I understand that's part of the Bishopric so I will probably have more meetings to go to. I mentioned I was concerned about the time involved but was told it will all work out and I would have many blessings poured on me. Don't think I buy that any more, I've...

Re: Questions About Faith

For me, faith is a willingness to act despite uncertainty. It's not about "knowing" or believing. There is some hope involved- that your actions will lead to something good. Good post sir/mam. I have been taught that faith in a commandment is following a commandment believing that a reward will fol...

Re: Questions About Faith

How about faith as it relates specifically to commandants? That was the question in GD today. I gave an example where I don't have faith. I discretely left class before tithing came up. WoW?

Questions About Faith

Gospel Doctrine today (DW teaches) was about acting with faith ex. when Noah built the ark it wasn't raining. The question what commandments require faith to obey? Several remarks then one answer was accepting callings... I don't remember the whole dialog but this is one of my stumbling blocks. It s...

Re: Time's Up

Thanks for the update. I'm guessing the call with the SP1C was about extending the ward clerk calling (since that calling is one extended by the stake). The silver lining of extending a new calling to you is that they still want you to be a part of the spiritual community. My head would be racing i...

Re: Time's Up

I was called as Ward Clerk tonight and will be released as SSP. Lots of mixed feelings.

Re: Time's Up

All, I should have kept you up to date right after my meeting. That's inconsiderate considering all the support I get here. It takes me so long to write a paragraph that I never seem to have the time to start but I do apologize. Right not I'm at work at the end of the day so forgive me if it doesn't...

Re: Time's Up

Best of luck Kipper and don't be shy coming back here. It helps for others to see what works for some and not for others. In retrospect I don't see how putting aside pursuits or altogether dropping plans to make a life style suitable and personally rewarding in order to make sure an organization st...
