    We kind of miss the point, you say the cross was not how he completed the atonement. I disagree. His death completed the atonement. Helaman 14:14-15 For behold, he surely must die that salvation may come; yea, it behooveth him and becometh expedient that he dieth, to bring to pass the resurrection of the dead, that thereby men may be brought into the presence of the Lord. Lots of people died on crosses but only one was our redeemer and savior. To many the cross represents his last and ultimate sacrifice.

    Sounds like that is changing, leave the Catholic religious calendar out of the discussion. It’s not relevant. Palm Sunday did happen, Good Friday or the crucifixion of Jesus did happen.

    Whats wrong with crosses? I know this discussion has been had before. A symbol is what you make of it. I see nothing wrong with the cross.

    It heartens me to hear the terms used “Good Friday”and “Palm Sunday” when was the last time you heard those used in a sacrament meeting, my limited experience has shown me that we gloss over the Holy Week in our meetings. I am excited for this to be the new normal. To celebrate these holy days as other Christ centric church’s do. We have been letting this slip, I remember once I had to go to a mass at my daughters school. It was Palm Sunday there services occurred before ours so it was no big deal, I would go to mass @ 9am then our normal services @ 1130. I’ll tell you what they had a great sermon focused on Christ’s triumphant return. They even handed out crosses made out of palm leafs. I went to our meeting and they had talks about family history and temple work. I don’t even think it was on anyone’s radar that it was Palm Sunday.

    LDS Missionary arrested

    So it would seem. We are likely not in possession of all of the facts related to this case. I know they really put the screws to you on the mission field, but he had to have felt some sort of pressure to make it through his bishop, stake president and MTC. I'll assume that the news story is accurate and he did not confess until he was on his mission.

    @mrmarket May not be aware of the clerical privilege laws in Utah. I know I am not and at first glance you might legitimately ask "what the heck". What I do know is that somehow a pedo was allowed to enter the mission field. Someone has some explaining to do.

    Happened in the mission where I live. I never met the kid.

    well said. I wonder if any of these items were ever mentioned as a cautionary tale for other members of the ward?

    See highlighted parts, you can cremate. In the example given cremation needed to have been a valid option. While not encouraged it should have been part of the conversations especially with a mortgage and 7 small children at home.

    Good ideas but they need to be his ideas, not his girlfriends or wife's ideas.

    I agree with the underlying issues. HE needs professional help. Has this been sought out? When I say professional help I mean that you pay money to someone to find out what is the root cause of his addictive behavior.

    Decide if you can live with a relapse, and all the lies and deceit that come with that. It will happen and it doesn't make him a bad person, but it will happen.

    I see this also, individuals want help making a budget and saving money, but its hard to squeeze blood out of a rock without taking drastic measures. If people are serious about digging themselves out of a financial mess very, very hard decisions need to be made. They really need to ask themselves can I afford to live in the house I live in? do we need two car payments? or even one car payment? maybe I can't afford to live where I want to live and need to move. Do I really need a smart phone? Cable TV? Netflix? Eating out? Vacations? When you break it down to the essentials you can save. Most are unwilling to take the steps necessary to dig themselves out of their hole.

    You are correct however you did not provide any context. While I am certain that this was a very difficult time for her, and I am sure that the Stake president followed the spirit and did what was best. There are lessons to be learned. Which I suspect most people can't see. What is your takeaway from her experience?
