Re: Update abt TBM in laws in my ward

So sorry you have to deal with in-laws in your ward. I used the same comment with my dad about the seven differing first vision accounts. And don't forget that JS didn't tell anyone about this for 10 years. Subtle tidbits of info like this gives people enough to chew on and later on might give them ...

Re: NNN back with more cringe worthy confrontations

This dude was way too apologetic after.

I would have traveled up to ID to watch this.

Re: Scouting is dead

IT Vet, I have no doubt many parents will have that mindset. Little do they know that the Sons of Helaman award doesn't mean diddly squat to employers unless you live in Provo. People have been putting "eagle scout" on their resume for years and years. It's hard to say how it will affect the control...

Re: Scouting is dead

Old topic...but my thoughts are: young men that are still interested in scouting will probably not want to be busy two back to back nights during the week. In other words, they won't want to attend non-denominational scouts one night and then a LDS young mens meeting the following night. Most kids s...

Re: Coyote Gulch in Escalante

Thanks rincewind. I'll have to look for that when I go back. I'm sure you learn something every time you're down there. For me, it was check your truck for rattles before taking the 40 mile washboard road. I got passed by a prius and even an outfit that had probably rolled a couple times. They must ...

Re: Coyote Gulch in Escalante

I had an amazing weekend camping in Coyote Gulch. Couldn't ask for a better view rolling out of bed and having front row seat to Jacob Hamblin Arch. I recommend it to those who are adventurous but haven't seen it. So we did go the sneaker route and there were ropes already in place on the final desc...

Re: The cost of serving a senior mission

I know of a senior couple that was living on the east bench in a good size home before their mission. Immediately after they got back, they had to downsize and now they're living in innercity in a rundown neighborhood. Pretty sad.

Re: I've decided I'm not going to church anymore as of today... Now what?

Try and get caught up with the fam on Sunday if that's feasible. I look at Sunday as a catch-up day, if I was extra lazy on Sat. Or if I did good on Saturday with the honey dos I might just fart around on Sunday. It took a while for me to get over the guilt as I watched neighbors drive to and from c...

Re: Do I have regrets?

A question for SeeNoEvil: does resigning help you "let it go?" Like let go of the anger and not dwell so much on how it's affected your life decidions starting from when you were a kid. These internet forums consume a lot of my time and just curious if it gets better after you resign. And maybe your...

Re: How's the new Ministry thing going to work?

For some reason they feel that changing the name of something will fix things and make it better. Sorry but they are still selling the same shitty product. All in all I think the no reporting is a good thing. Now let's work on getting ALL members familiar with the essays and start printing them in l...

Re: Coyote Gulch in Escalante

Thanks for the replies! I did see one pic of some people coming down this route but they didn't have big packs. Either that or they had already lowered them down. I just like the idea of of shaving time off the trip and spending more time down in the Gorge. I will either try the shortcut or crack in...

Coyote Gulch in Escalante

Weird question I know...but just wondering if anyone on here has taken the shortcut that drops you down into Coyote Gulch? I have entered from Hurricane Wash trailhead but it's a long walk just to get inside the Gorge. My main question is if the shortcut is doable for two 49 year old guys with backp...

Re: How's the new Ministry thing going to work?

Thanks for enlightening me. That is a good question on how this change makes it holier. Making it holier is getting rid of it all together and just being a good neighbor. You don't need a calling to be a good neighbor. As far as the #s reporting, I'm pretty sure Uchtdorf gave a talk at GC a few year...

Re: How's the new Ministry thing going to work?

I will have to politely decline if our new HTers/ministry is different from our current situation. Our family has had a husband and wife companionship for HT and they've never left a lesson, never read from the Ensign and they've never left with a prayer. I'm guessing they are aware of my beliefs. I...

How's the new Ministry thing going to work?

All I've heard is that it will be husband and wife companionships? If this is the case, I don't see it working since many couples have one or the other not "in." I just don't envision it being any better than the old system unless they're just going to select only card carrying couples to visit mayb...

Re: What is that you want that the church isn't providing?

You could tell your SIL you have friends (us) that don't attend because they're not keen on the ONE way of thinking and they don't enjoy echo chambes. You could tell her some of your friends would maybe return for even social reasons if their beliefs/nonbeliefs were welcomed. I personally don't fit ...

Re: Anyone else overwhelmed by this MTC confession?

Last night I told my wife how disgusted I was with J. Bishop. I briefed her as to what happened. So she asks, "what websites are you on, you're always looking at anti-mormon websites." I told her, Fox, Salt Trib just to name a few. I was massaging her back during this conversation which she loves an...
