Re: Identity

I've also contemplated personal nomenclature and failed to find one that really feels like it fits. Maybe it's because I've never really liked to be pigeon holed into particular categories. I've found that how I describe my religion varies depending on the context and audience. When asked, yeah, I'm...

Re: Temple changes

Corsair, I'm curious. Do the face masks in the temple have to be white?

Is everyone given a light blue disposable mask to wear, or do they bring in what they have? It might be cool to see a multi variation of mask colors.

Re: And it came to pass...

I was slightly surprised that i could write that scriptoral drivel pretty quickly, thanks to all those years reading joe's work and doing a lot of writing. I will say it's easier in my 50's than it would have been in my 20's. Then again, all I've got is a baseball cap and a rock i found out in the b...

Re: New Ward because .. why?

If I remember correctly, average activity rates have decreased. So, more members per unit is necessary in order to fill callings and keep a ward running. My guess is that decisions regarding ward splits are based primarily on # of average sac attendance. Back when I was one of those ward leader guys...

Who still has a TR here? (I don't.) Please return and report! As for me and my house, we do not have a TR. None of my children have a TR. My MIL may be rolling in her grave, but fist bumps mostly all around. DW halfway wants one, probably to keep her dear mother from rolling so much. The ambivalenc...

Re: Tithing

Your local public schools also always need money, especially to help support extra curricular things like athletics, music, arts, drama, not to mention basic school supplies. Some schools have more funding than others. Some are in dire straits. Sometimes $100 will go a long way.

Are the conf sessions shorter this year? My DW said they only lasted one hour. I think maybe she fell asleep through half. I was not paying attention this year.

Repenting might make you square with the Lord, but I'm afraid the state of Mississippi is a little more hard nosed.

Re: Keeping up with Trump

That's an interesting piece of data.

I know missions are all different. But i can't imagine any MP who would encourage his missionaries to even think about girls or marriage until they are released.

Re: The anxious Mormon voice in your head

A recent fast and testimony mtg was full of anxious Mormon voices. I think bearing one's testimony, for some folks, equates to some relief of Mormon anxiety, if at least through the duration of the meeting, until the EQ Pres asks if you've ministered to the Smith family yet this month.

New Ward because .. why?

Our stake recently added a new ward, pulling members from adjacent wards, which seems odd given that these wards seem much smaller than they've ever been, and sac mtg attendance cannot currently fill the chapel, much less the over flow. Stake leaders report the new ward is needed due to new converts...

I think there's already enough adversity in life without adding on the guilt of not living up to contrived expectations from, let's be honest, a host of white guys telling you what God says.

Man, yo mama give you a name like that, use t...
