Re: What will church look like...after Covid-19

So I bet whether someone is itching to go return or whether someone would be fine never going back comes down to whether they're an introvert or an extrovert.

Re: What will church look like...after Covid-19

Check out This Reddit post over at the very TBM sub called r/latterdaysaints. He said while home church is hard, it is so much better that going to church, and he is not looking forward to returning. I was wondering how this didn't get removed, as they normally remove anything even slightly against ...

Re: Any church-at-home experience to report?

I saw on another board (maybe reddit/latterdaysaints) that the area president someplace in the US issued a firm order that the members are NOT to conduct a sacrament meeting. He said only the prophet can authorized a sacrament meeting, and he has not done so. He said members can sing and have an ope...

Re: Any other retirees watching their future go down the drain?

Not to brag, but three years ago when trump was elected, I took all my retirement money out of the S&P 500 (where it had been for 30 years) and moved it to gov securities that earn 2-3% a year, but can never go negative. I've been second guessing my move over this past three years as the market was ...

Re: The challenges of attending church

I have just the opposite problem. I have lots of friends at church, and enjoy the association with them, but not church! We even have a standing invite from one family for Sunday dinner every week. So I go to talk with my friends.

Re: The Holy Ghost vs. active shooters

I work for the DOD, and we get training every year on "Active Shooter". The rules they drum into us is Run, Hide, Fight, in that order.
The same should work in a church, mall, or office building.

What about getting tattoos of the marks on your skin? Just once and done for life, although excomunication might be painful when they told you you couldn't wear garments anymore!
