Re: Ward Conference is now a Dystopian Future

Finally we got to endure a thick helping of pre-guilting members over not using their extra free hour from 2-hour church properly. Apparently it is not to be used for football watching or sleeping. I expect these guilting talks will fade away as 2-hour church becomes the new normal, but for now it ...

Re: Missionary name badges

I've seen a few older couples that have specific stake callings wear name badges to church on Sunday but I see far more RMs that have their mission name badges attached to their scriptures or something... and they've been home for over a decade.

Is it time for the Church to get realistic about it's membership numbers?
SM attendance is a number every unit submits in a quarterly report. Someone has their finger right on the pulse of the trends in actual membership.

Re: The changing face of LDS INC under RMN...why the rush?

I'm also thinking that we're leading up to a change to the WoW. I'm not chomping at the bit to drink tea or coffee, if they are taken off the list I'll in all likelihood continue to not drink them. That's my disclaimer stating I don't have skin in the game. But banning coffee and tea really makes us...

Re: The long rumored temple changes are happening now?

Church statement on temple changes: "Whenever the Lord has had a people on the earth who will obey His word, they have been commanded to build temples." The temple in Jerusalem was destroyed by Rome in 70 a.d. I wonder why the existing Christian church wasn't commanded to build another, smaller tem...

Re: MTC closures

I'm likely remembering wrong but I half remember hearing that some kids going out on missions were reporting directly to the field. They didn't go a MTC.

Anyone else hear something similar?

Re: Resign or Get Ex’d

I think if you resigned there'd be a greater chance of well meaning members showing up in an effort to get you to rejoin. If you are ex'ed then people would probably try to avoid you.

Re: Home study church

I don’t like using the word lazy because it has so many negative connotations, but I’ve come to the conclusion maybe being lazy isn’t always a bad thing. With as much that is expected of members of the church there's probably a way to label everyone as "lazy." I know that when I was more orthodox I...

Re: The other shoe drops for Sam Young

They sure do like to waste a lot of people's time. Sam, the SP, and the former BP.

I guess they didn't want to pay for the postage for a letter on official letterhead that said:
No.

Re: Annoying things about Mormon Funerals

I've been to a few funerals in recent years. A stake president presided. A lesson on the Mormon version of the plan of salvation was taught and framed as, "This is what [the deceased] believed." The, "This is what [the deceased] believed." was the phrase that stuck with me. If you are a TR holding M...
