Re: How to turn a coversation

I have gone as far as put some quotes from General Authorities in the tablet that talk about the subject that might offer opposing views from the narrative in the lesson. Of course, I don't have it there to bash with anyone, but to possibly offer another view similar to the approaches that Ray poin...

Re: New Essay on Polygamy! (update, a 2nd one posted also)

Well you can still tell the class about the video and enough information where they can find out about it.

Or bear your testimony about how wonderful it is that the brethren have made it easier for us to talk with others about this topic by showing us how and how far we can go in talking about this.

Re: Explaining a balanced faith perspective to others

Where is the "Like" button when you need it. thanks Heber for writing this down. I think I do some of this, but seeing it so clearly written helps me be more conscious about it.

Re: The Problem of Ambiguity in the church

I certainly agree with Roy on For me the money qoute was the following: The people on the extreme sides of these questions convey great certainty about what should be done. However, I think some of these people are more interested in being certain than they are in being right. Once again I want to t...

Re: How to turn a coversation

Good advice and I agree with the difference of in a small meeting of leaders vs a HP lesson or gospel doctrine class.

I think what I am most lacking is being mentally/verbally quick on my feet.

Re: How to Minister to those with doubts

I do like MockingJay's suggestion and the "cross stake" option suggested by SilentDawning. I was just listening this AM to Bill Reel on his interview a few years ago on FAIR where he said (paraphrasing from my feeble memory), "going to look for answers even on Fair will expose you to more questions....

Re: Possible Model of LDS Church Phases of Commitment

Thanks DarkJedi, One thing I have found interesting is how many of us have hot buttons in some areas and other things really don't matter. For me the whole DNA/BOM issue is like "what? who cares?" as I didn't get that pounded into me (somehow). I know others find it as a huge issue. I don't claim to...

I jus...

Re: Possible Model of LDS Church Phases of Commitment

it's not necessarily clear sometimes what stage one is in. I think that is true after Stage 3. I would also agree on it being more like waves and you move back and forth and on different issues. An example of that is I am rather :x today after reading Wheat and Tares topic of ""Malcolm Jeppsen's Ro...
