Our balance paid to the church in tithing this year is zero.

When the bishop asked I shook my head (side-to-side as in "no") but said "yes." Bishop: "What do you mean by that?" Me: "I mean that I'm a retired part-time student and I don't have an income anymore, so I have paid 10% of zero." Mrs. Hagoth said she will be paid up by the end of the year. She has been paying her tithing from her own part-time income in the form of food and clothing for needy friends. It will be interesting to see what she ends up actually handing over to the corporation.

I have developed an attitude of "you guys go ahead and play your game, I'll just sit here on the sidelines with a cold one and watch."
But our Bp is pretty cool. He asks the financial secretaries to hand him a list of names to check off with no dollar amounts. He says, "it's between you and God." I think that's a good philosophy to extend to every aspect of religion. It's between me and God(s)/the universe/the Tao/my fellow man.

Does anyone else have assigned times for tithing settlement? My ward does!

I received a letter in the mail about tithing settlement with my assigned time to meet with the bishop, with instructions that if I could not make the assigned time, to contact the exec. secretary to reschedule. I can't believe they actually do this in my ward! Assignments to clean the church are made the same way, except your family's name just appears in the Sunday program with your assigned week.

Just say you decided to skip the middleman and went straight to Heavenly Father (who always has time for you) and had your appointment directly with Him.

So all good here... 8-) 👍
