  1. I can’t remember the last time someone asked me that question.
  2. I can imagine ecumenical mission involving leaders of many faiths joining together to call for an increase in faith, hope, and charity throughout the land. Perhaps something like a speaking tour, social media campaign, etc. perhaps along the line of President Nelson’s tours.
  3. Rev. Dr. Andrew Teal and Elder Jeffrey Holland discussed serving a mission together. That would be an interesting development. Perhaps some of us here could partner up with our non-LDS board friends and go do some good. Who’s game? “‘Wouldn’t it be great to actually go on a mission together? I’d be delighted to do that,’ the Rev. Dr. Andrew Teal, a theologian of the Church of England, said to Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The idea underscored the Rev. Dr. Teal’s zeal to heal rifts between Christian fa
  4. I had the same thoughts. What a treat it would be for the folks back home to hear her/him speaking in their language!
  5. This Sunday morning session celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ has been a tour de force demonstrating the spiritual depth of Church leadership across the world, as noted by President Nelson. This has been a wonderfully moving and motivating session for me. How about you?
  6. See First Presidency proclamation just above this post.
  7. First Presidency 1909.... “Man is the child of God, formed in the divine image and endowed with divine attributes, and even as the infant son of an earthly father and mother is capable in due time of becoming a man, so that undeveloped offspring of celestial parentage is capable, by experience through ages and aeons, of evolving into a God.”
  8. All who are baptized are counted as members of the Church, even if they are inactive or estranged. We go to great lengths to fellowship them and bring them back. My sister and niece were counted as members for decades, even though they did not attend church nor agreed with its principles. Both came back to activity later in life. As the Lord commanded, “Nevertheless, ye shall not cast him out of your synagogues, or your places of worship, for unto such shall ye continue to minister; for ye know not but what they will return and repent, and come unto me with full purpose of heart, and I s
  9. What do you think of Jacob 3? “27 Wherefore, my brethren, hear me, and hearken to the word of the Lord: For there shall not any man among you have save it be one wife; and concubines he shall have none; 28 For I, the Lord God, delight in the chastity of women. And whoredoms are an abomination before me; thus saith the Lord of Hosts. 29 Wherefore, this people shall keep my commandments, saith the Lord of Hosts, or cursed be the land for their sakes. 30 For if I will, saith the Lord of Hosts, raise up seed unto me, I will command my people; otherwise they shall hearken unto these thin
  10. Why is there no social disapprobation of folks like Wilt Chamberlain, JFK, Gene Simmons, Hugh Hefner, MLK, et al.? Why is taking multiple wives contemptible but having hundreds or even thousands of assignations is not only ok, but admirable?
  11. Those emperors were pikers compared with Gene Simmons, Lamar Odom, Hugh Hefner, and Magic Johnson.
  12. I asked S. Heber about this. He said, "In the Hurricane 98th Ward we have not and will not wear masks, nor will we be vaccinated. Have you not read the scripture, 'The wise man's eyes are in his head; but the fool walks in darkness, and I myself perceived also that one event happeneth to them all'"? I asked him, "What the heck does that mean"? Sorry. That's all I could get out of him.
  13. In our town, the Church is building a massive regional Deseret Industries facility on some pretty prime property. Our tithing funds at work.
  14. It’s a mystery beyond human understanding. There is no way to account accurately that amount of money.
  15. Sister Gui and I got both Pfizer’s at Overlake Hospital in Seattle. We qualified because of age and she being a teacher. Very smooth efficient process. I had no reaction to either shot except for the expected sore arm. The second shot sore arm was the worst I have had with many flu shots over the years, but we were advised not to take any pain meds. About 24 hours after shot #2 Sister Gui was flat on her back with fever, body ache, and fatigue. Lasted about 18 hours. She was tired for a couple of days after.
  16. The original song is “My Gal’s a Corker, She’s a New Yorker” written in the late 1800s by John Stromberg. It was popular at the time and even became an Army marching song. The lyrics are a bit suggestive and racist. There have been many variations of the text over the years. http://harrier.net/songbook/manual/mygirl.html MY GAL'S A CORKERMy gal's a corker, she's a New YorkerI buy her everything to keep her in styleShe's got a pair of legs, just like two whiskey kegsHey boys, that's where my money goes-oes-oesThat's where my money goes, to buy my baby clothesI buys her everything to keep her i
  17. Perhaps when we no longer see through the glass darkly such earthly problems that brought on the specter of divorce may seem less significant and more forgivable. Perhaps animosity, jealousy, vindictiveness, and anger will be resolvable once we see each other with greater compassion and understanding.
