  1. A sincere thank you for the background you provided. While the origin of the term is interesting, it is unknown to the vast majority of people who use the term today, which is why style guides denigrate its use and etiquette guides say it shouldn’t be used in polite conversation. My hope is that my attempt at a simple analogy didn’t distract you, and others, from the invitation I was trying to make in the last paragraph of my post. Godspeed to you.
  2. Just a thought...consider how comfortable you are when you see Xmas during the Christmas season. If you support the notion of not taking Christ out of Christmas, it’s only logical you’d support not taking Christ out of the name of His Church. But even more important than the Church’s name is how its members think of themselves. Do we really know whose we are? That we were bought for a price? If so, why would we ever react in any manner other than enthusiastically to an invitation to always have Christ on our lips, in our minds, and in our hearts.
  3. On occasion I’ve chosen to take offense or be hurt by the advice of an ecclesiastical leader. I get over it by choosing to no longer take offense or be hurt by such advice.
  4. As I’ve communed with God, I’ve felt clear direction that the Church provides the best combination of environment and understanding/doctrine to maximize my devotion and discipleship. It also gives me a wonderful forum and structure within which I can serve God’s children and my brothers and sisters of all faiths.
  5. At the risk of being overly simplistic, your posts come across to me as “sharing” and not “preaching,” intended to help, not condemn or provoke. For that reason, I read them and appreciate your perspective.
  6. Since the opening prayer in the second hour is gone and isn’t likely to return, I invite anyone who has an issue with that to pray for peace of mind regarding the change. That seems a better choice than debating why it’s been discontinued.
  7. I put it down 14 years ago and have never had any desire to pick it back up.
  8. The scriptures teach that all will confess God’s judgments are just. Thus, while we can spend time speculating on how we, and others might be judged, we can take comfort in the promise that at the time of judgment we will agree that not only God’s judgment of us is just, but his judgment of all others as well.
  9. I’ve had a number of powerful and poignant experiences as I’ve pondered regarding our Mother in Heaven. I treasure those experiences and hold close the feelings and light that accompanied them.
  10. Lots of wisdom there. Another thought. What of the billions promised the Celestial Kingdom who died before, or never achieved, accountability in mortality, so of necessity never married in mortality. Are we to believe they receive some inferior version of the Celestial Kingdom (prophets have said no) or will they enter into the new and everlasting covenant outside of mortality. If so, that path is likely to become the one more often used to arrive at exaltation.
  11. Channel. Invite one of them to come in for the last 5 minutes of each Ward Council meeting to provide a spiritual thought on a scripture you’ve assigned along with a suggestion on how the Council/Ward might better live the principle set out in the scripture. Then when approached in the hallway with an ad hoc suggestion, you can kindly suggest they consider whether they want to share that the next time they give a thought in WC. Then prepare to marvel at their ability to weave au gratin potatoes into whatever scripture you assign them. 😇
  12. I breathlessly await the strong righteous protest of our social injustice warrior to the NBA regarding the gross underrepresentation of white athletes on NBA rosters (he then can move on to the NFL). 😀. And remind me what, other than perceived power, worldly recognition, and embarrassing salaries makes being the CEO of Fortune 500 a desirable position?
  13. Where do I send the check for my vision test (and who do I make the check out to)🤓
  14. I try to take the approach of enthusiastically embracing Prophetic direction without expecting to fully understand God’s purpose in providing that direction before I begin applying/living it. Thus my prayers regarding such directions are along the lines of, Dear God as I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically abide by this new counsel and direction, please prompt me as I do so to see they divine purposes and hand in this. My experience has been that the wisdom and purpose of new direction is much more easily seen and understood as it is experienced.
