some months ago in a Church conference my dad (who is the 1st counselor in the stake presidency) gave a talk in Church. it was a about bearing a testimony, specially on fast and testimony meeting, this was because a lot of members of the ward used the time of testimony to preach doctrine or exhort people and confessing sings to the whole congregation, it was becoming a problem because that would make some people uncomfortable and of course it dirsupted the Spirit.. (For instance, a sister confessed that she tried to kill a boy a long time ago and that se was repented , so we were all kinda shocked,..) my dad based his talk on this great article LDS.org - Ensign Article - Bearing Testimony but the problem is that members still dont seem to understand, sometimes they talk about everything but testimony, they share experiences, exhort, confess, and mostly express gratitude... so, my dad doesn't really know what to do now, how to tell them again without "hurting" their feelings , I would appreciate any suggestion.. He has tried but now it has become a little problem, I dont know if any of you has experience on the subject.. does this happens in your ward too? or it's just here?
