nuclearfuels posted a topic in General Discussions1. My father in law and a few other people I know seem to need callings more than those callings need them (Scouters, like for decades). It seems unhealthy to me, to need a calling more than it needs you; like to feel a part of your identity is literally missing unless you are called to serve in X group (Primary, Youth, scouts, RS, EQP, etc.) or if you attend church w/o a calling for a while (new ward, stake boundaries; you moved for work, etc.) So detaching the correct amount - accepting any calling that comes to you with no thought of specialization - seems a more healthy but also aimless approach. 2. If an EQP member was called to serve as the Primary Pianist, this seems like it woudl upset the hierarchy of responsibleness the ward and stake leaders have; BUT if there is no such thing as "advancing in the priesthood" per Elder Christofferson, why would such a neutral (not advancing, not retrogressing) calling be less preferred? Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
