When Oldest CrowBIL and SIL drove by to visit their daughter and meet her #4 baby, I made sure this was ready for pick-up.  They sent me darling pictures of him wrapped in it with a sister holding him, but you just get to see the blanket (smirk).

This yarn screamed at me to be used for another nieceís Baby #3.  I was not sure what sheíd think, but in her thank-you note, she said she wanted to keep having babies so I would knit for them.  Aw, shucks.

One of my nieces had Baby #2 16 months after Baby #1, but didnít let me know about it.  Itís only fair that he now get a blanket, since Baby #3 is just weeks away.  I picked a more mature design.  Since I always knit larger blankets (why spend all that time if it will only be used for a few months?), size is not a problem.

Itís also reversible

The problem here is not the idea itself. I think as much as you say you only share your thoughts and feelings or what you hope and desire, but also what you believe will happen, it does pose the idea of the system as it is, is not complete or is flawed.

I don't think the "system is flawed." However, I don't believe the Restoration of the Fulness of Times is complete, yet. I believe in continuing revelation. I also believe that obedience in the light and knowledge we currently have prepares us for further light and knowledge. Which is why I think "taking over" priesthood ordinances without authorization, and staging rallies at conference, and rejecting current leaders, are all the wrong ways to obtain that further light and knowledge. The scriptures are crystal clear that obedience is key.

Perhaps the Ninth Article of Faith expresses it best:

"We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God."

For the record: I'm also really hoping that we receive the other records--additional scriptures--during my lifetime. I want to learn how God guided and taught other groups of people throughout history.

I'm grateful for Taalcon's thoughts and expressions. I may not always agree with him, but I find myself thinking of things a different way because of what he shared.

I absolutely do not want to hold a priesthood office. But, I would not be surprised that in the future, the Brethren will reveal more responsibilities for women that we may have traditionally seen as part of the priesthood (as we've seen with women being witnesses). I've always felt that women do hold priesthood power (well, women who are endowed). I also can understand why this subject may be distressing to some, especially to women.

I'm sorry if some subjects or expressions are upsetting to others here. I think of everyone here on this forum (as well as some who no longer frequent our forum) as family members and am very fond of them. But, I hope people won't feel pressure to stop posting or sharing their thoughts. I, for one, am very grateful for those thoughts.

I can see no reason for it other than to placate a bunch of women who think that they should have it, and their main reason being they would do a better job than the men. In fact, it would mean never needing a man to perform another ordinance.

Andrew, as I know you are not a meanspirited person, I think it may be useful to point out that the way you expressed this comes across as being very insulting and meanspirited.

I have to think you can think there are individuals who would righteously desire the opportunities to participate in gospel acts that you, their husbands, their fathers, their brothers, thier sons, etc are able to participate in, not because they think they are better than you, or any of those loved ones of theirs, or because they think any of them shouldn't be able to.

We have a book of scripture that begins, approvingly, with the delcaration "And, finding there was greater happiness and peace and rest for me, I sought for the blessings of the fathers, and the right whereunto I should be ordained to administer the same".

There is a harmful disconnect to suggest a young man should grow up with a desire to righteously participate in the Priesthood, and to look forward to performing Baptisms, and participating in the Sacrament, but that a girl or woman who grows up hearing the same talks those boys do and somehow has the same desire fostered in her MUST be feeling so for unrighteous, selfish, powergrabbing reasons.

Yep. During Sister Bingham's talk, I though, "This is the buildup. Here it comes." Then when Pres. Oaks talked, I realized, "Not yet. This is more of the same."

Hmm...

The Sister Missionaries just posted this in our Ward Council WhatsApp group. I don't know how widespread it is, but it might be useful for others.

Did it need to have English subtitles all the way through?

Not all the way through, but quite a lot.  I should have mentioned that, but I guess I watch enough stuff with subtitles, I just take it for granted.  Sorry! :-[

Taalcon, thanks for that recommendation.  CrowMan and I wondered.

CrowMan, CrowDaughter and I watched The Two Popes tonight.  Excellent.  The casting was perfection.  As non-Catholics, we learned a bit about some of those traditions.  As someone who knew a little bit about these men, I learned more.  I understood where they were coming from, and what has cast them.  The Argentine accent was real.  The cinematography was very good.  I squealed at the scenes in the Sistine Chapel; a place I was lucky enough to visit once and would dearly love to go again (but not in the summer).  The music, hmmm.  Not what you would expect in this film.  There were some political scenes that felt heavy-handed, like the director was trying to make a point, that did not add to the film, but they were short moments that I could overlook.  I seem to recall both men were nominated for Oscars; very deserving.  I highly recommend.

The last scene, of Benedict and Francis watching the 2014 World Cup; excellent! ;D

Just finished our annual viewing of "Darby O'Gill and the Little People."  What a fun, lighthearted movie.  I'm getting tired of all these "gritty" movies that take themselves waaaay to seriously.  Some old school Disney fun really hit the spot.

I've encountered a lot of links very very recently (you know, covid-19 and people staving off boredom or something), so I thought I'd post them here so you can benefit from them as well.

Please add your own links. Let's spread the joy!

Health and Wellness / Re: Fat-shaming in modern culture
« on: February 17, 2020, 03:59:08 am »
I think the issue about fat-shaming is making personal remarks to someone that are hurtful and unhelpful. Someone might feel that they are being helpful and concerned by offering the remark; in that case, they need to think carefully about the extent of their stewardship for that person. If they have none, then they need to shut up and stop being so rude because it isn't for them to comment. If they are a doctor or dietitian, then they probably aren't fat-shaming but doing their job. Of course, the individual might just be a mean and spiteful person who intends to upset the person they are talking to. Some people are like that.

The fundamental principle is whether or not you have a stewardship with the individual. What authority do you have for commenting on their weight or appearance? This is the same issue as someone criticising the clothes another member is wearing because they aren't modest enough, or criticising a parent for not being sufficiently in control of their children in sacrament. If you are not in a calling where you have a responsibility for dealing with these issues (ie bishop, RS president, EQ president), mind your own business and let those whose business it is deal with it. If they have decided not to 'deal with it', maybe they have good reason.

Finally, does anyone really thing that someone who is overweight needs people explaining to them about diets, about health risks, etc? The arrogance that displays is breathtaking. Overweight people are almost always far more aware of the situation and potential ways forward than anyone else and they certainly don't need someone who considers themselves superior coming along and telling them what they already know
