Re: Blaming Parents for Wayward Kids

I'm so glad the author of the article stood up and was couragous. We haven't had this training yet in our stake, it's coming though. I'm sure it will be presented to the stake leadership first and I plan on being the voice of alternative perspectives. My parents did all the checklist stuff (FHE, pra...

Re: Once-Churched People -- an amazing essay

I like nearly everyhing John Pavlovits writes. If he had a church around here I would go at least once every couple of months.

Re: Book of Mormon evidence

I think Judd also posted his "evidence" over at NOM a few weeks ago. The exchanges there were highly amusing.

Re: "You should have known"

Either way (U&T or seerstone) I still think the BofM is boring (my personal opinion).

Re: I am praying for all of us tomorrow

Talk went ok I think?...hard to tell sometimes and I think it was a bit edgy (I used a lot of a talk I posted here previously on revelation). There was no mention of the SCOTUS ruling and I was short on time so I didin't include my statement from above. I went to 8 hours of meetings on Sunday and no...

Re: 1st Presidency Letter - supposed to read to all members

I think Ray makes a great point. I amend my previous comment - probably best that it comes from you. Whether or not you offer additional commentary is up to you, but I personally would probably say something like "this is a potentially divisive issue, I hope we can appreciate and love each other eve...

Re: 1st Presidency Letter - supposed to read to all members

roadrunner, Thanks for posting, it was a brave thing to do. I agree that it is a huge missed opportunity and much of the younger generation is not going to go along with this. I wish the church could get out of their own way. Doing nothing, saying nothing would be more productive than this. I also t...

Re: Council discussion about dealing with those struggling

I'm glad that you were able to have that discussion. I feel like this has come up in our stake a lot, and yesterday in HPG we discussed Sister Wixom's talk. There were a few of us monopolizing the conversation but it basically came down to, got to love people, can't judge them, and people will need ...

Re: I am praying for all of us tomorrow

Same here. I am giving a talk tomorrow, I prepared a few remarks about this...still contemplating if I should share or not. Maybe get people's thoughts on this: I know the SCOTUS decision on marriage equality this week has been big news in my circles, I assume it has been in yours as well. I don’t h...

Re: Previews of Upcoming Events

I'm just don't think I can care about "The Sabbath" like we are taught. Sunday was the worst when I was a kid; locked inside all Sunday and only being able to watch Saturdays Warrior or read scriptures. If that is some reflection of the CK count me out, I'd rather party with the sinners. I don't min...
