Re: What if he doesn't release me?

Reuben,
I am so glad that your Bishop worked with you and is willing to release you. You are very blessed to have an understanding Bishop.
It is good that you are taking care of yourself and putting your family first.

Re: What if he doesn't release me?

I think you have given them a reasonable amount of time to find a replacement. I had a Bishop tell me he would not release me until he could find someone to replace me. He said if he had a name by the calling the Stake wouldn't get upset that the calling wasn't filled.

Re: Ward

SilentlyDawning, I appreciate your advice. You are very wise.I have been there for people who have been called out in the hall. I hope I made them feel better. The Bishop gave a talk about being rebellious and not wanting to be at church. I think the Bishop totally missed what I was trying to tell h...

Re: Not sure how to proceed..Thoughts?

You could tell him you appreciate him asking you. You could let him know that you have prayed about it and would like to continue in the calling you have now. Most Bishop are very respectful of your decision if you tell them you have prayed about it. It is very important to keep your inner peace. I ...

Re: Trying a different Church (non-LDS)

I think you go see what it is like. If you don't you will always wonder. I have went to other churches before. It was interest to see what they believe. It is a good way to meet some nice people. I agree with you about some of the Utah wards. I hope you will go and that you have a nice experience. D...

Re: Ward

Minyan Man, I talked to the Bishop. I really don't know any one in the Bishopric well. They are young and fairly new. I too believe in the direct approach. I was careful what I said but the Bishop is not willing to release me. I am not surprised. He is running out of people to serve in the ward. Tha...

Re: Ward

Ray,

I like your idea. I think we need to go to another ward. It would be nice to meet some new people and take a much needed break. I am glad that you are enjoying your calling in the scouts.
I think it is important to go to church even if it is not in your own ward.

I appreciate your support.

Re: Ward

SilentlyDawning, It is terrible what they did to your daughter. I am so sorry. I can't believe how the church leaders just pretend things didn't happened. I like you idea. I am still working on getting released. I do feel a big relief just knowing I am making the right decision. I am looking forward...

Ward

I have a leadership calling in my ward. I went totally inactive and then went back to church to do this calling. I thought I should try one more time. I am really struggling with the way people in the ward treat each other. The Bishop will walk up to people in the ward and get after them. He can't f...
