Re: If not literal then what?

Cadence are you by chance an engineer? Your discussions mirror so much of what my husband says. I find it interesting that my favorite stories in the bible are the parables. I like the ability I have to put myself in that place and it is nuanced to some degree. My husband has never liked these as mu...

Re: Tell me a little about the pre-existance

Most of them having no support other than their opinion. But pre existence, agency and the whole plan of salvation are so integral to the narrative that they have to be fact in order not to have a brain spasm Ha ha...I can see it now, the brain spasms all over the place. I did hear a new one I had ...

Re: Monson issued court summons to answer allegations of Fra

The purpose of this site is to STAY lds. Whether in your heart or your actions. We can do this. We aren't the first group to go through this. Think of all the Sunstone and Dialogue people - they didn't even have the internet. Some of them even lost their standing in the church - Euguene England, Le...

Re: Monson issued court summons to answer allegations of Fra

We aren't the enemy, we have tons of support material, even before the essays to peaceably participate and be unthreatened. The sad part about that is in some places, even with material and such, we are the enemy. I am the enemy here. None of this has anything to do with being kind to my fellow man...

Re: Monson issued court summons to answer allegations of Fra

The news hit the morcor (is that even what it is called? Cache Valley). http://news.hjnews.com/news/article_caec323c-8ebb-11e3-b293-001a4bcf887a.html This will not be a good thing for us here. It will just make the orthodox leaders buckle down on the "apostates" and the internet is evil. Sadly the h...

Re: Help with a letter to my BP and EQP

I have thought of you often Turinturambar. You put a "avatar" to a problem I had never thought much of in the church, because I didn't understand it and didn't know anyone who struggled with it. I also have a friend with family member who has SSA :wave: I think your letter is painful to read because...

Re: How Does the Church Address Abuse?

When I was put in as PP, I know we were instructed to notify the Bishop immediately if we saw signs of abuse or a child had confided in us. If you pay attention to the kids, you can tell when all is not right in their world without even asking but I never had any huge suspicion or signs that made me...

Re: How to address this?

I know I keep mentioning this, but it was my "world" for a long time. I just got released as PP a few months ago. In our ward, I think M&G's email is the route for the PP and Bishop but would be cautious with the teacher. Emails can create awkwardness, even sent nicely depending on how well you know...

Re: Over The Bridge

I think of you often and some of your words are on my heart. They get buried by hurt, frustration and anger but every time you post, I am uplifted. Thank you. Beautifully written. "No biggie" - I need to get to there first. I still find myself thinking "biggie!" (which then results in moments like l...
