Re: New Mission Presidents

Here are a few ideas I would try: 1) rewrite the rules 2) allow swimming and water play 3) provide a paid vacation every 6 months for each missionary. Give them a break for a week. 4) allow them to communicate with whomever when they want to 5) encourage service opportunities to make a real differen...

New Mission Presidents

The church just called 105 couples to preside over missions. What if one of them was you?
What would you do different as a mission President or matron?

Re: Priesthood vs. Energy Healing

...If men can claim mystical healing power without proof, then I say let the women do the same, and let the church demonstrate that it's version of magical healing is any more effective. The church's version of magical healing also involves magical oil! :shock: So there's that... Yes, they used to ...

Re: Wife dropped a bomb on me

Out of the blue last night, she says to me that she is done with the church. Like wants to resign and everything, and wants the kids names removed as well. I had to say that we need to slow down just a bit and talk this out with the kids (4 teens). While none of them is super enthusiastic about chu...

Re: We now know what Hagoth did when he left in a ship

I haven't been able to find any peer reviewed discussion about this newer than 1993-95. It appears to be a non-topic these days. Some people seem to believe there was transoceanic trade, some think the analysis was flawed, some think the mummies were tampered with, either intentionally or accidenta...

Re: Jana Riess nails the reason my full tithe isn't to LDS

I thought this was an amazing article. She brought the audience along for a ride through her mind and thought process. One of the reasons the church hid the $100 Billion from members was fear that they would choose not to pay tithing. This is exactly what is happening. I predict a strong discourse o...

Re: Has anyone done a list of Joseph's wives and those who lived with him?

Joseph and Emma had a few live-in helpers. Fanny Alger and others. Does anyone know if there was any of them he didn’t marry/have sex with or was it all of them?

Re: Ensign is now the Liahona?

This change was announced a while ago. I forget all the reasons, but I’m certain it has to do with saving money...and languages. The Liahona has been the church magazine outside US/Canada for years. I think it is an effort to consolidate the messages into one publication that can be translated into ...

Bishops and liabilities

Every few weeks there seems to be a new lawsuit against the church and church leaders or a bishop is arrested for molesting children. I think from a legal perspective, bishops are at high risk for legal action against them. They are generally untrained and at times get mixed up in legal matters. If ...

We now know what Hagoth did when he left in a ship

Recent discoveries seem to indicate there were ancient voyages between ancient Egypt and the Americas. Where else would cocaine in mummies come from? Obviously, it was Hagoth who left in a boat as the BoM indicates. He came back, left and never was seen again...he was smuggling drugs to Egypt. https...

Go if you can. I don’t recall anyone on NOM complaining about going to their child’s wedding in the temple, only those who couldn’t go. The ideal scenario would be for them to be married first and then go to temple
