  1. This building is the next stake over from where I live. I can state that the suspect is a mentally ill individual who is (was?) a member, and whose parents are quite faithful and active.
  2. Well.... This thread discussed nearly everything BUT General Conference Predictions. Any last predictions?
  3. As an update to this. I got my second shot last Thursday. No side effects other than a sore arm that lasted through Sunday, and a slight headache Friday afternoon/evening (could be coincidence).
  4. I was able to get my first shot on March 4. I got Pfizer. My wife got her first shot a few days later, but took Moderna. I'll get dose #2 this coming Thursday. EDIT: I was slightly tired and had a slight headache about 16 hours after my shot. Not sure if that was a coincidence or if it was related. My wife had a stomach ache about 24 hours after her first shot. Also not sure if that's related or coincidence.
  5. Does any one think it likely we will see a greater increase in female "area" leadership like what was announced for Europe? Or, what about a greater role for the stake president's wife or the bishop's wife?
  6. Well, it's that time again. Post your predictions for any news, announcements, or policy adjustments for this upcoming General Conference. After Conference, if anything you predicted came to pass, you can come back here and brag!
  7. I think agency is poorly understood. We obviously fought a war in heaven to maintain agency, but I think Satan continues to subvert the doctrine of agency here one earth. One way he continues to seek to "destroy the agency of man" is by teaching that "all mankind should be saved at the last day...for the Lord had created all men, and had also redeemed all men; and, in the end, all men should have eternal life." (Alma 1:4; Compare to Moses 4:1). He also whispers that God "will justify in committing a little sin.... and if it so be that we are guilty, God will beat us with a few stripes, and a
  8. In our ward there have been 12 cases among active members of which I am aware. None of them have been contracted at church as of yet.
  9. I can see your point on this totally. I just think when a bishop says they "are not required" when, in fact, they are, is an invitation for people to disobey. It's a lot like saying "we want you to obey the traffic laws, but you don't have to." I think it is better to say, "please obey the traffic laws," and leave it to them to be obedient or not.
  10. I should add that we all should be a little more like Ephraim Hanks-- “On many occasions [Ephraim] Hanks was rewarded for his obedience to the Prophet, Brigham Young. One spring morning he was at work, building an adobe house in the city. The basement was almost completed and he was just beginning to lay the sun-dried brick when Brigham drove up in his carriage and said, ‘Ephraim, how thick is that rock wall?’ “Eph answered that it was eight inches thick. “Brigham said, ‘Tear it all down, Ephraim, and build it twice as thick.’ Then, as if to avoid argument, he turned his carriag
  11. From this bishop's perspective--Your bishop is wrong. The direction from Salt Lake City has been perfectly clear from day one--we are to follow the health guidelines when meeting together. Here are a only few examples from the church's recent instructions-- "A two-phase approach will be used, always following government regulations to ensure the health and safety of all involved." (https://newsroom.churchofjesuschrist.org/article/safe-return-church-meetings-activities) ------- "Sabbath Day Worship Services: "Phase 1 "Shortened meetings at the meetinghouse with
