Re: LDS fireside this Sunday on "Navigating Doubts"

I didn’t watch, but reading summaries here and elsewhere, I’m disappointed thinking my mom problably did (or will). My first name is Steven, so I’m sure she’ll see this as divine council.

Re: A Mormon Math Problem

Coming from a large enough, mormon enough family that this has happened before even without bulk ward ordaining: they will do none of the above. They will get permission to do all the ordinations in the grandparent's ward at the same time. Family will all travel there at once. Badda bing, badda boo...

Re: Meeting with Stake Pres.

I hope I'm not being too nosy, Mack - You say that you are going to rejoin the church for your wife. Were you excommunicated or did you resign? (I resigned.) I'm wondering because someone who resigns has a harder time rejoining, so I understand, than someone who was "disciplined" by the church. It ...

Re: Feeling anxious about new YM/YW announcement

No, we didn’t give it to everybody, but we probably should have. Having known the youth leaders for so long, they were already following the two-deep policy. I’d actually been in YM before I was the EQP and they wouldn’t even give rides to kids without another person in the car with them. We emaile...

Here's a bit of a surprise: The outcome of Gina Colvin's tribunal: "No Action."
I was surprised by that as well. Maybe the further removed from SLC one is, the more leeway the SP has to actually weigh evidence.

Re: Temples and land speculation

Best to doubt the Tribune before you enter the bowls of apostasy! First - where can I find a bowl of apostasy? Sounds like it would be great to eat cereal out of. Second - I also heard about the land speculation for the first time on John's podcast. My first thought was things like the multi-millio...

Re: No one left to ex

Not me, I’m already resigned. If not, I’m sure that somebody in my wife’s ward would have complained about me already.

I was starting to think I was alone in not concerning myself with what happens next. Nice to know it’s not just me.

Old Fashioned made with Four Roses Single Barrel Heh, I just had my first Old Fashioned tonight. Made with George Dickel Rye. I've become an instant fan of the cocktail. It’s a good one, for sure. Just had another one tonight with Basil Hayden’s Dark Rye. Easy cocktail to start with, for sure.

Re: Feeling anxious about new YM/YW announcement

We had to deal with this recently too. Not because of the age change obviously, but because I have a 13 yo daughter. We told her previously that she was not to be alone with any adult that isn't a parent. When she was offered a blessing she "forgot" and mom found her in a church classroom (at least...

Re: I’m back - with more questions

Thanks for your responses everyone. It seems strange to me that for a long time nobody visited us. I believe the EQ president is our home teacher/ministering person. He’s never visited us. My next door neighbor (the other one) visits occasionally, but she always has and it never seems to be in the ...

I actually enjoy not having to be subjected to a repetitive bad movie and cos play! Not having to do a TR interview is pretty damn nice as well!
Almost as nice as zero hour church!

Re: MTC closures

I guess I see this type of thing as normal operations for a large organization. I've indirectly facilitated the closing of multiple operations locations through cost analysis and looking at returns on investment. It's a necessary thing to do to maintain profitability and manage a business. I recogn...
