  1. Elder Oaks: Ultimately, all keys of the priesthood are held by the Lord Jesus Christ, whose priesthood it is. He is the one who determines what keys are delegated to mortals and how those keys will be used. We are accustomed to thinking that all keys of the priesthood were conferred on Joseph Smith in the Kirtland Temple, but the scripture states that all that was conferred there were “the keys of this dispensation” (D&C 110:16). At general conference many years ago, President Spencer W. Kimball reminded us that there are other priesthood keys that have not been given to man on the earth, including the keys of creation and resurrection. https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/general-conference/2014/04/the-keys-and-authority-of-the-priesthood?lang=eng
  2. I think mostly people want to acknowledge the new calling, especially if it’s a big one, and express support but we don’t really have a one-word expression for that.
  3. Our last bishop was divorced and remarried.
  4. You specifically said that you were “worried” that others might “misunderstand” the guidance. It’s really not your place or your business unless you happen to be a bishop or stake pres and one of your flock approaches you for assistance. As for whether it’s a fair question for a father or grandfather to be involved in how the guidance is interpreted and applied? I specifically mentioned a husband (though I should have said father—as long as it’s not a case of rape or incest or other situation where his involvement would be harmful). IMO, a grandfather would only have input if it’s a minor counseling with her parents about what to do.
  5. Eyes on your own work. How a woman chooses to interpret and apply this guidance is between her, her husband (if she has one) , and the Lord.
  6. Oh, interesting. I almost always buy online because I don’t live close to a store, but the last time I bought some in person I don’t recall being asked for it. I’ve never tried to buy without having a current TR, but people can be without a TR for a myriad of reasons yet still be under covenant to wear the garment. I just always figured they used your membership number to make sure you’ve been endowed.
  7. I’m pretty sure they just need your membership number. They probably ask for a TR to get your number off of it.
  8. I don’t believe you need a current recommend to purchase.
  9. Does anyone know where the Q15 will meet while it's being renovated? Don't they meet weekly in the temple?
  10. Ah thanks. funny, I thought he sounded like he was losing his voice 😊. I’m sure he’s doing fine!
  11. Does anyone else think Pres Eyring sounds like he’s not feeling well? Who is the choir this afternoon? I missed it when they announced it. That arrangement of “I Stand All Amazed” was lovely.
  12. Similar to my experience 2 or 3 years ago. I asked as well and got pretty much the same reply. The tour was *awful*. The missionary guides barely spoke English and were not equipped to handle any questions that went off-script. They were also apparently instructed to bear testimony at nearly every pause on the tour, which was weird and awkward. I’m glad to hear it has changed.
  13. What about your wife’s preferences on the matter?
