Yes, I know I could google this, but I thought this way would be more fun. Is bread in milk a Mormon thing, Utah Mormon thing, American thing, too-poor-for-butter thing....? I've met very few people who consume bread in milk, and all of them had some kind of tie to Utah. I picked it up from my dad*, whose family came to Utah with the pioneers. I don't remember mom's family eating bread in milk (they came from Texas). *Dad sometimes toasts the bread first, which is highly illogical to me - why make bread crunchy just to put it in milk to get soggy?
I have a friend that makes his own cheese. He and those in this cheese making community tell me that you cannot make cheese using Wal-Mart milk, but you can with other store purchased milk. Although he hasn't researched why (and frankly neither have I), I find this information alarming. What foods have you heard similar things about?
Hi all, I have a question about the role that Sunday School plays in our learning/spiritual progression. Just to clarify, I have a strong testimony of the truth of the Church and the Savior, and the Book of Mormon, (I served a mission as well, have had many callings, etc). Over the past 2-3 years I seem to be getting less out of Sunday School (gospel doctrine, elder's quorum) meetings. This is primarily due to having been a member of the church my entire life, and it seems the lessons are continually repetitions of the same material, year after year. I understand the need of the church to keep the material doctrinally basic (the milk) because the church is growing and there are so many new members. For example, as a missionary we teach very basic principles of necessity, this is completely appropriate for where the young members and investigators are at. However, it seems to me, at a certain point in our personal spiritual progression, lessons learned through church sunday school classes become less pivotal in our development. Indeed, for myself, the temple and personal study/revelation have been much more instructional. So, my question is, does there come a point in one's spiritual journey, where one's development will come more from personal revelation and study, and thus the very basic lessons presented currently in Sunday School will be less helpful? I enjoy attending sacrament meeting and feeling the Spirit there, but often I feel time spent in sunday school is very unproductive because the lessons don't seem to be helping me to progress. Often an argument is that we aren't preparing ourselves before attending the meetings, yet I read scriptures and pray daily, attend the temple regularly, fulfill callings (2 at this time), etc. It has dawned on me that perhaps the time comes in one's progression when the role of the church meetings and basic level of gospel instruction there plays less of a role in one's development (like in school, when one learns what is taught in grade school, they move on to new instruction, etc). I don't say this out of any pride, rather, I am completely honest in acknowledging this. Am I correct in thinking that there comes a time when the majority of one's instruction won't come from church lessons, but rather from personal revelation and experiences? Thanks =)
