    Sanctuary of the Church

    Once the temple is available again that will be much better, but I need the time at church every week.

    Sanctuary of the Church

    I remember as a kid the chapel being a lot more reverent than it is now. Welcoming new people etc. can be done in the foyer, but once someone comes into the chapel they should quite down and be respectful of the reverent atmosphere that should be there.

    The sound of crying children don't bother me at all. And, Brother Jones should have invited me too. Blast that Brother Jones, he is just so arrogant. Arrgg!

    Matthew 11:29 - 30

    Exactly. I always try to thunk of each day as a fresh start. The past is gone and cannot be changed.

    Sanctuary of the Church

    Why is it that every other religion treats the sanctuary of their church as a sacred place for silent reflection and worship? But we treat ours as a social hall to catch up on how each others lives are going? Honestly, I want to come to church and be spiritually recharged, not listen to noisy chit-chat. If people want to catch up they should do it in the foyer.

    Sadly, both of my two oldest daughters have left the church and no longer believe in God. But, they do know that my wife and I love them. My oldest son seems to want to go on a mission and is pretty devoted to his testimony. I am at a loss with my younger son who is 15 and has secretly been going to LGBTQ club. So, I really feel alone with our ward, some of the members are really good people, but they are so busy, they have no time for friendship really. We have a good bishop, but he frankly seems rather burned out with trying to keep the ward afloat. I don't know if it is really worth it anymore and I wonder if I am wasting my time even trying anymore. I guess I am just doomed to a life of struggle and disappointment. I appreciate your comment though, and the time it took for you to write it.

    Any advice for those of us whose children are all becoming atheists because our ward is rather elitist and the teens snub our kids for being in the "poor part of the ward?" Yes, one of my girls actually had another girl say that too her. She also once bought a shirt at DI that she really was excited about because she used her own money. Her "friend" in the ward said, "we don't shop at DI because my mom said, that is where people go that are too lazy to get a good paying job." Frankly, if I did not already have a testimony I would probably be at the least and agnostic.

    I would like to know what law says we have to be vaccinated? These are dictatorial mandates.

    shaming lemmings for refusing to jump off the cliff is not 'good shaming.' It is called coercion and comes from beneath.

    I may have over stated my opinion and should have said, They have skipped too many of the testing protocols for me to feel comfortable with getting the shot. I know the Prophet has received the shot, but please keep in mind that he is in the age group that is the most in danger from this virus. I believe I have the right to choose for myself whether to receive the so called vaccine and I choose to not do it. My wife has gotten and two of my adult children have too. I feel it is not what I need or have to do at this time. thank you very much. I am frankly very concerned about the potential long term risks compared to the short term, possible, benefits. Also, there is a lot of shaming going on right now in our society regarding the shot and masks, and I think people should learn to mind their own business.

    I'll wait until the vaccine is actually aproved by the FDA. Currently it is only authorized for emergency use. They have skipped all of the testing protocols, making the people the testing group. No, thanks, I am not a lab rat.

    When people take the mark, whatever it is, they will know they are taking it. The mark will not be snuck in under the radar, there will be no question about it.
