Re: "Grace Is Not God's Backup Plan" - Adam Miller

This book is interesting, it is Adam Miller doing his own tuning of Romans, but is seriously amazing. It caused me to reflect on grace on Christ in a much different way than I had in the past. Highly recommended.

Re: Post Training Report

Courageous effort SBR. I think you showed some great restraint, did the right thing in ignoring some of the comments and not letting them pierce your cultural "veil", putting you in "open Kimono" mode, as Hawkgrrl puts it. The part I didn't understand was the part you described thus: I feel a conne...

Post Training Report

I did some training with the Bishops of my stake last night about helping those who are experiencing a faith crisis (big thank to Bill Reel for his help on this). It was a good conversation, I was crunched for time and didn't get through everything, but so it goes. I really only got through about th...

Re: Last Sunday's Book of Mormon lesson in 3rd hour

Luckily I have two kinds in nursery and as the HP's contemplated on how to flood the earth with the BofM I quietly stepped out and hung out with my boys in nursery. It was much more fun and peaceful. But seriously, listening to the HP's attempt to work up the courage to flood the earth with the BofM...

Re: Value Conflict: Personal Happiness or Obedience?

Happiness over obedience for me. In some instances obedience helps me be happy. Not murdering people has worked out pretty well, I think I'm happier for being obedient to that law. (Ok, silly example) Sometimes I'm obedient because I told someone I would be and that relationship is important. I do t...

Re: Family Bloody Family

Nibbler, What did they talk about that third hour that was so important non-married people' couldn't be there? I find the worship of traditional family to be completely off-putting to me. It marginalizes others and IMHO it does not engender the type of charity for others situations that fall outside...

Re: Understanding scripture

RR, This is something I have become much more aware of over the last year, that we really don't know much about the scriptures. Oh, as a church we know many of the verses, but we like to cherry pick and proof text as much as the next guy/gal. In HPG on Sunday our lesson was on The Word and basically...
