Re: Priesthood DoorDash

During covid shut ins the extended family would get together for sacrament meeting. Someone assigned a rotation schedule and included me. I decided rather than to say the sacrament prayers, I would just pull up the sign language video version from an iPad. The family thought it was pretty special an...

Re: Resignation help

My understanding is you can send a letter from yourself to the ward bishop or clerk and they should honor that. That assumes they know you or of you. With a third party resignation service like quit Mormon dot com, I think you have to do the notarized signatures to verify you are indeed choosing to ...

Re: The Mormon church is looking to crack down on... garments?!

I can specifically recall following the guidance of the church and asking Godde for direction and personal revelation when I was questioning wearing the garment as instructed. As I prayed, I received a prompting to turn on the TV. No sooner had I done that, the answer to my prayers came in the form ...

Re: The Mormon church is looking to crack down on... garments?!

Here’s a thought. If the church is trying to control your mind, they would accomplish this by controlling your underwear. If the church is trying to provide the member with a religious symbol that reminds us of covenants and promises, it could accomplish this in a much different way. The cross is an...

We’ve received enough complaints on Dirty Birds posts that it’s been decided to ban him for a period of time.

The committee has voted and resolution has passed.
Go ahead and ban me too.

Done

NOM needs to be a safe place

We’ve received enough complaints on Dirty Birds posts that it’s been decided to ban him for a period of time. The committee has voted and resolution has passed. The board continues to experience a few glitches and cost increases and I’m committed to seeing it continue but in order to do so it needs ...

Re: Declining callings and talks is getting easier for me

Congrats on determining for yourself your own level of participation. It’s a great place to be in. Before the pandemic, I had managed a few co-callings with Sys Ryder in primary that I enjoyed because it took me out of Sunday school and elders quorum which I had always skipped to sit in the car, go ...

Re: 9 stories from those who returned to the faith

I wonder whether something like this might have made a difference for me. There was a point where I wanted nothing more than to talk about belief with someone faithful and knowledgeable, but I didn't know who that might be or how I might go about it. You bring up an excellent point. At the peak of ...

9 stories from those who returned to the faith

In this months edition of the Liahona, the famous monthly publication formerly known as the Ensign, there is an article titled How we came back: Nine Stories from those who returned to the faith. The article starts out …. “in a world that often magnifies loss of faith stories, quieter journeys of re...

Re: Question on Mormon Cooking

Now I’m arguing with Elder Chat G. TeePee While I understand your request, it's important to approach the topic of polygamy with sensitivity and respect for the individuals involved. Promoting polygamy-themed cooking could be perceived as inappropriate or disrespectful. Instead, I can offer you sugg...

Here’s a few funny meal ideas from Elder Chat G. Teepee baked with a dash of RR sarcasm. 1.

Re: Question on Mormon Cooking

That leads me to my question about historic Mormon cooking. I know that Mormon tastes in cooking tend towards blandness, but have there been any pronouncements against spiciness? Only in the bedroom Penguin! Only in the bedroom….. My grandmother was known for her blandness in the kitchen. Some of h...

A quick update

I took a new job in the same company which resulted in more time and dedication to the company. It pays extremely well which is why I took it. Unfortunately it means my time and dedication is to the company and not to my distractions, interests, and hobbies. I can’t stand that life seems to be that ...

Re: How do you define Mormonism?

It feels like the church members can be packaged into a few different groups that represent a challenge to the Leadership. However, as long as the wallets of each group remain open the Leadership can tolerate while they search for more real estate investments. Let’s continue defining Mormonism. 1. A...

Re: How do you define Mormonism?

I love that. I would add… Mormonism is a time consuming lifestyle made up of a series of non-standardized rules that each church member and leader personally interprets differently and then expects everyone else to abide by their own interpretation, that ever so slowly evolves from generation to gen...

We like him even if some of his jokes aren’t funny. Sometimes I write with savoir-faire, sometimes I resort to flipperancy (penguin joke).

Re: How long can I lie ?

Love the commentary. Let me simplify and share how I reframed this. If I wasn’t born Mormon, let’s just say for this example I would be a catholic. As a catholic, I would attend church with my family. Sit by them on the pew. Participate in milestone events. Celebrate Easter and Christmas. And live m...
