Re: The long rumored temple changes are happening now?

One other morsel of food for thought. This is a major update to the temple endowment. The last time there was a major update was 1990. A few years ago, the movies were updated with new actors and voice/tone inflexion, but there was no change to the actual wording and process. So if you didn't get th...

Re: Need Advice - Potential Visit from a Seventy

I'd probably agree to the visit, mostly due to masochist reasons. If you expect some type of resolution, explanation or 'coming to Jesus' experience - I'd say to punt. If you want to have a little entertainment, get frustrated by someone's inability to understand basic logic and simply have nothing ...

Re: Do I tell DH I've tried alcohol?

Tell him.

Find a way. Minimize the collateral damage as much as possible, but tell him.

Tell him you have something to discuss and you're nervous to tell him, that you need him to be understanding and supportive. Be vulnerable, be kind, be open and honest. Expect the same from him.

Re: I'm about to be officially "outed": NOM Crowd-Sourcing

Adding my $.02 without reading all the comments. Send an email/text/call your siblings, relatives, etc. Tell them you won't be present at the ceremony. No explanation needed (of course they will assume porn) Tell them the special day is about the bride and groom. If anyone cares to discuss the subje...

Re: Connection to Christianity Waning...

Re: Compelling witness youth video

That was painful, I couldn't finish the whole video. Same apologetic responses as previous with a fresh format and videography update. Also, nice to see the continued "Us vs Them" tribalism. Some boy sees the book and says "My pastor says that book is fiction" and we instantly jump to a courtroom wi...
