Re: Full of Angst on Saturday night

Re: Skype Church

Ha ha Roy, no worries for you. We open the over flow everytime. There is always room for the evil there. Come sit by us.

Re: Casting My Net On The Other Side

Yesterday a pang went through my chest as I read how more complete and right with the universe Richard Bushman feels when he is participating in Mormonism. While reading it, I remembered how it used to feel so right. Today I don't know if I have answer for it. Just doing the actions doesn't make up...

Re: Being authentic with your children

Origami and I are in the midst of this dilemma right now. Though we haven't solved how to handle it fully, I have found it interesting how often things come up that we seem to clarify. In a thoughtful, careful way we explain that for us we believe we should take the "treat others as the Savior would...

Re: Skype Church

That does seem great. I am not sure where that would leave the members of my ward who notice if I am wearing nylons or where people are sitting in the chapel- the most righteous sit up front you know.

That was a snide remark, but truthful. I glad to see it works somewhere. I am jealous.

Re: You comfort me

I have been following your story some on NOM. I feel for you. I don't think I ever understood the word "draining" until the last few years. I have only had a few conversations with family about topics that arise. To not be understood and opinions dismissed because they are "wrong" is hard. I can onl...

Re: Keeping the peace

I am the wife of the man with a faith crisis. Maybe I can give you a bit of her perspective, although I am in a different place now. Church was our whole world. I was serving in leadership, he was too. We joked that the drive to Ward Council was our date. I knew something was up with him for a long ...

Re: Sacarament Meeting to remember

I was thinking about this yesterday and noticed someone had a new comment. We did write a letter. Not sure how he felt about it, haven't had a response but at least we said our piece. I threw in some ice cream money so at least he could get a shake? He is a GREAT kid from a really difficult family. ...

Re: Would you leave if you could?

My other big frustration is proving the orthodox crowd right. If I leave then they will see me as an example of the dangers of study and thought. It will shut their minds even tighter to any option of a nuanced perspective and make it doubly had for the moderates left on the inside. I want to prove...

Re: I have my good days and my bad days.

I think you would technically be a home teacher Ray. I haven't ever had a home teacher worthy of a shout out...they never sent/brought chocolate!
