Re: Stagnant Numbers

Have you gotten any letters to leadership in your ward where they are asking wards to increase name submission? There is a huge push right now to increase name submission coming from at least above the stake level, especially with the youth and new members. It's kind of this "chicken or the egg" ar...

Re: Stagnant Numbers

Question: how is the "number of people submitting names to the temple" calculated? I assume the temple recommends still have bar-codes,...or when someone submits a name, do they cross-reference a name with a membership record? How is that calculated and tied to a unit code? To submit names now you ...

Re: Stagnant Numbers

We all know the church is well aware of what their active rate is, yet they will *never* release that info. Oh yeah, the church is RIDICULOUSLY aware of what the activity rate is.. I was just looking at the quarterly report for our ward. They also have KPI graphs tracking attendance, activity rates...

LOL is that for real? I seriously can't tell if that is a joke or if there truly is an article where a TBM is using gold medal winning mental gymnastics to explain how policy reversals should indeed strengthen one's testimony.

Re: Hook, line and creamer

By the way did anyone see Ned Flanders singing in the Tab Cats? When did they start allowing mustaches? Oh yeah, I saw that. It made for a fun "Where's Waldo" style game for me and my daughter. This conference was a fundamental shift for me in the way I think about the Q15 and other leaders. I used...

Re: General NOMfrence Sunday Afternoon!!!

I feel like Ralphy in Christmas story decoding the message "Drink your ovaltine". Wow, what a let down. I thought on some level the Q15 wanted to make life easier and better for the average lay member. They really don't care. Whatever the reason for shorter church and all that, I doubt it had anyth...

Re: Priesthood session NOMfrence

RMN: -100 I thought I was supposed to take my vitamin pills.. the only pill I need so far is Vivarin. This conference has been SOOO boring. So he likely spent TONS of time away from his family as a doctor and then yells at me for not spending enough time with mine.

Wow, that was a little out there for a sec. Weird how he can look like he's not quite sure where he is one second and then launch right into his sermon and sound completely lucid.

I'm just sittin' on the bench. The coach keeps wanting to send me in, but I'm just sitting here on the bench. +5 for still being my friend even though I just won't get in the game.
