    Temple in Russia

    I agree. Nizhny or Novosibirsk so Mongolia could have a Temple also?

    Uncomfortable at church - any suggestions?

    I struggle with this also. I'm uncomfortable around wards similar to those I grew up- Asked my wife about, so many times she doesn't really want to talk about it anymore- She said the truths of the gospel are more important than any social relationships (good or bad) within a ward- I coudl talk about this for a long time and the challenges it's brought to me - having so-called brothers and sisters act like you don't exist; that doesn't strengthen a person's faith- but let me conclude and tell you that the many years I was called to serve in a Chinese Branch truly revived me, spiritually - so I'd recommend trying another ward or branch for a while, if you're able.

    No point mourning the loss of a program that died many years ago

    Temple in Russia

    Was chatting at Scouts last night - RIP and good riddance BSA - with an expert on Russia. Asked him 'bout the announced Temple in Russia; he thinks St. Petersburg; I don't know as I dont' study that country much,,, He said it could be 10+ years away like when Kiev Temple was announced Curious as to if Church HQ's legal team advised President Nelson or Bishop Davies to not announce the Russia Temple until a location had been selected and approved. Laughed at the response to the lawyers: Thank you for your advice. This meeting is over. - Curious as to what steps are in place before a Temple is announced (site acquisition, govt permitting approval, etc.)? Also I'd like to attend the dedication but not sure who would sponsor my Visa as a US passport won't get you in Russia, especially not after their recent laws regarding foreigners proselytizing?

    Sharply shifting religious landscape

    Yep. History is cyclical. Everything the Nephites went through, we too will endure sans apostasy.

    Thanks kfisher. Hopefully your economics lessons will help those executives who have done nothing, NOTHING to prevent their loss of members. If we haven't reached the dregs of BSA leadership, I can't wait for the next crew. Your comment is what makes Dilbert's boss the hilarious reality that he is

    Those who weep are free to contribute and join scouting troops outside the LDS Church. Trust me; there are good people out there with well-funded scout troops. As for me, I'm DONE- DONE- DONE!!!! Serving in the scouts is like having a part time job; tricky while married with kids, on one income, in college, etc. etc.

    As a start...six-figure salaries for Scout Executives? Abandoning their morals in the hope of chasing more corporate donors?

    Yes. And cheers to that, my friend.

    BSA will lose at least 20% of its membership, as they should. That is to say nothing of the non-LDS scouts that LDS Scout leaders have included and taught the merit badge classes, etc. to for the past 100+ years. At least the BSA will be more "inclusive" now.

    "That may be must be, Love, on (December) next."- -Romeo and Juliet: Act 4, Scene 1, Page 2 Already burned my scout uniform and rubbed the ashes on my skin in a ritualistic gratitude offering to God.
