Re: Does the formula for developing spirituality work for you?

To answer the first question for me - No, not really. I feel it more when I really help someone in need, or I am able to spend some time in nature - especially alone. In fact this issue is part of what was weighing my shelf down quite a bit - why is none of this working for me? Why do I feel absolut...

Re: Is Sacrament Meeting being held anywhere but Utah?

As I mentioned, in my stake they were splitting the ward into 3rd and having 1/3 of the ward come for a quick meeting. Our family was set for the 2nd week. I didn't feel comfortable going given the description that our bishop had sent out. But my wife went and it seems they were doing about all they...

Re: Is Sacrament Meeting being held anywhere but Utah?

We had the ward split into 3rds, with max 50 people signing up on their one of 3 rotating group signups. We got groups 1 and 2 to meet (less than 50) and then the SP put it all on hold given the surge in Covid cases in the area.

Re: An unintended "consequence" of home church?

When I let my wife know that I no longer believed, one thing I told her is that I planned on always continuing to attend sac meeting with her as I know it can be hard to be there by ones self. Even though that was 2+ years ago, I still have not told my leaders where I am at belief wise. But dang it ...

Re: The thing that started it all

I used to have some of those feelings. Since transitioning I don't feel that at all.

Re: The Church & the Coronavirus

I have a son that I hope will be able to get home from Europe. I too was thinking "what can they do?" I talked with my son and he was upbeat "we are just moving to online". I think that is going to even be less effective and we know in many areas it was more and more ineffective than in the past (be...

Re: Anybody else watch Messiah (Netflix)?

I don't think "the young messiah" is the same thing. I am adding a picture of the main character at the bottom. It was very interesting and I agree with hawkgrrrl's take on it. I wonder where they are going after season 1. https://cdn.christianpost.com/files/cache/image/13/74/137454_w_760_405.png
