Re: Spiritual experience at Longhorn Steakhouse

I’m going to be up in your neck of the woods next week. Perhaps we could get together for a spiritual lunch on Friday? :lol:

I should track down those lectures and see how I interpret them now.
I may still have them on CD somewhere.

Remind me next time we meet for lunch. :lol:

Re: Unexpected Mormon trauma

Fifi, I too struggle with setting goals. I have to do something similar for work for myself and my department. I’ve pulled in my staff and we’ve had a few brainstorming sessions to root out reasonable goals. I always start with the mundane stuff that has to be done, that everyone already does, etc. ...

Ordinary Mormon Trauma

I’m copying this post from the Mormon subreddit. I think it describes in words what a lot of us feel in regards to the trauma we felt going through our faith crisis. https://www.reddit.com/r/mormon/comments/nwow97/gina_colvin_on_ordinary_mormon_trauma/ Dr. Gina Colvin interviewed Lindsay Hansen Park...

Have you ever felt inclined to read the 1844 singled edition of the Nauvoo Expositor? There is a scanned archive of the document available on archive.org which you can access here . If you take the time to read this fine publication then you will witness for yourself that those who decried the acti...

Re: Saturday evening General Conference is canceled

The more I think about this...

If they take the segregated meetings away, that’s one less thing for members and critics of the church to be upset about.

Normalization in progress!

Next up will be female apostles.

Look for it in 2076!

Re: Saturday evening General Conference is canceled

If they move the women to the other sessions, then that will cut into the time that the Q15 can be in-front of their peons and thus reduce their hero worship. My question is why? There tends be 3 reasons the modern LDSInc would change anything. 1. It is a public embarrassment to the church. 2. Cost...

Re: Your brain on Mormonism

Wasting time while a member is one thing. It was expected. Wasting time on Mormonism as a former believer, well now we’re just stupid. Mormonism continues to steal and occupy our existence. And we know it but can’t help it. I blame Fluffy. If he wasn’t so wise and entertaining to read, I’d probably ...

Done Hold up. Exactly whom did you pray to? Was it the Flying Spaghetti Monster? I thought it was Red Ryder answering the prayers. Ha! Seems the veil has parted a bit and you’ve seen behind the curtain? Now go and get Eve to put on her rain coat and partake of the Chuck-o-rama buffet!

Re: Saturday evening General Conference is canceled

This baffles me. From a corporate perspective, an organization cancels an event if attendance is low and cost outweighs the perceived benefit to the organization. This makes complete sense. From a church perspective, conference twice a year is considered a tender mercy. We get to hear the prophets s...

Does anyone else have a Traeger or pellet smoker? What are your favorite recipes? I’ve smoked brisket (turned out excellent), ribs (a bit dry), and Spatchcock chicken (most tender chicken I’ve ever made). I have a green mountain. I bought it over the Traeger primarily for the pizza attachment. We d...

Re: Garments and Temple recommend interview

Wasn't that one of the chief things over which Jesus got pissy with the Pharisees? Outward expressions of inward commitments. When you go that route it doesn't take very long for people to start judging inward commitments by someone's ability to display outward expressions. Ha! Isn’t that the whole...

Re: No more “time only” temple weddings

I think this is just to start making the transition to making the temple about eternity only weddings. They already have to have civil weddings first in some countries, and there will be a point here where there will be laws against discriminating against LGBT weddings, so I assume this is getting ...

No more “time only” temple weddings

It looks like President Nelson has discontinued the “For time only” temple marriages in order to focus the temple for “eternal marriages” only. https://www.sltrib.com/religion/2021/05/25/latter-day-saint-leaders/ We anticipate that this change will provide more opportunities for families to come tog...
