"If you can't feel the spirit you are the problem..."

The lesson today in EQ was horribly condescending. Thanks to a friend of the teacher who came out on Facebook about leaving the church we got to hear about how much we are at fault if we don't feel the spirit. We are to blame if God will only help us find our keys but won't testify to us the truthin...

Re: New Ministering Program

Our Ward hasn't even started the ministering yet. The EQP was conducting interviews the last two weeks to make assignments. I got asked to come in for an interview and politely declined. I told the EQP that I wasn't going to participate in the program. This process is a total cluster in my ward. The...

Re: Just popping in, again.

Lucky you, emower. I just can't rock the boat that much. I quietly go to SM with the wife. I usually ditch out on the rest. I just told the EQP last week that I wasn't interested in participating in ministering. I am sure that will go around the ward, but I don't give a damn anymore. The bishop alre...

My kids play Fortnite 27 hours/day or so it seems. Do these internet filters also help control ps4 play time?
Parental controls on PS4 can limit time. I use it with my 11 year old. He only gets 90 minutes a day and it keeps track if he logs off and starts again.

Sacrament Meeting Shooting

In case any of you missed it, on Sunday July 22 a man walked into Sacrament Meeting after the Sacrament and killed a man. The man he killed was his home teacher/ministering brother. He then left and went home. He was arrested and is being arraigned. This man is apparently newish convert, and accordi...

I have been playing Far Cry 5. I hadn't put the Mormon spin on the game, but now that you mention it. I haven't completed it yet but I am close. Just to many things in the way.

Great talk in SM yesterday

A young married man in our Ward spoke yesterday. He gave the topic and then begged forgiveness for the liberties he was going to take. He brought in quotes from Kant, Lewis, Cicero and others to speak of beauty, love and peace. He talked about how we aren't truly loving if we judge someone because t...

Re: Corsair's Visit to Nauvoo with Believers

I have a question. Is it pretty common for the grandparent generation to plan vacations to churchy spots so they can get all of their wayward (inactive) children and grandchildren to come together for something spiritual? Example: "I just want to sit in the sacred grove together with the whole fami...

Games like Agricola, Pandemic, Scythe, Power Grid, Terraforming Mars, etc. I haven't actually tried wargames. I should give it a try.
I have played some of those. Trying to get my family to play is like pulling teeth.

* I enjoy strategy board games and I have a lot of them.
What is your definition of strategy board games? There are so many types. I play hex and counter conflict simulations (wargames).

Lately I have been playing a lot of the new Battletech computer game.

Re: Church Presense in Nevada

Yes the South Tahoe ward averages about 75 in the off seasons and 300+ during the summer. We try to go camping at the lake each summer but we've never been to sacrament meeting.

My wife and kids go to the beach once a week during the summer. Great area to live.

Re: Church Presense in Nevada

You have been gone a long time. They now have two wards in Dayton. Not really from any real growth, just people moving out of Carson to get better housing prices. We have had 4-5 families move out there in the last few years.

Small world isn't it. Depending on your age, and your family's activity, they probably would know my family. My parents have been active in the stake forever and seem to know everybody. Dayton is exploding and with the huge business complexes coming into the area it will only get bigger. That is one...

Re: Church Presense in Nevada

You will be fine in Reno. Mormons are a definite minority. Plus you would only be half hour from Carson City. Right now the housing market is crazy in Reno. Renting is nigh on impossible. If you don't mind a commute Carson, Gardnerville and Dayton are a bit better. Hit me up if you want any more inf...

Re: Favorite Book of Mormon Character

The BoM always makes me think of that wonderful 80's cartoon He-man. Moroni is a mild mannered prince but with his magic sword and man-at-arms Teancum he becomes real bada$$ who dresses like a Castro Street entertainer. The holy ghost is Orko. The only one missing is She-ra because she's a woman.
