Virtual Sunday School / Virtual Sunday - Come, Follow Me
« on: March 15, 2020, 10:07:23 am »
Please use this Section for "Come, Follow Me", discussions. Keep each week's study to a single thread.

Other threads are permitted if they veer away from the central discussion of the week's study.

I will start threads for the coming weeks, in case people get ahead and want to put something in the forum.

The weekly threads are also linked to the Calendar here. So if you go to the little Month on the right you can click on a Monday for the week you want. I have moved the calendar from the bottom to the top to facilitate this.

Dear All,

Please welcome Roper as a new member of the Administration/Moderation Team. I believe we can all agree that his input has helped to shape the Charter, and the changes we are discussing.

I have made a few minor changes, which you may have noticed.

  • I have swapped Recent Posts List and Top Posters List order so that Recent Posts is at the top.
  • I have increased the number of recent posts displayed to 15. Often we have rapid turn around in one thread and can't see other recent posts. This should help.
  • I have added a list of the 15 most recent topics - for similar reasons to item 2

Please Read / New Nauvoo Charter - please read and abide by
« on: September 17, 2019, 03:48:09 am »
The following charter has been drawn up by members of the forum for members of the forum to abide by in their discussions. Please ensure that you have read it, and follow its principles when posting here and New Nauvoo.

The Nauvoo Charter

As members of this Nauvoo forum, we share the experiences of life and service as disciples of Jesus Christ. We learn from each other to better serve our Lord and our brothers and sisters. The charter states our core beliefs and convictions as the foundation of our community. The charter also states expectations in conduct and communication. While all members are not required to share core beliefs, all members are required to adhere to the stated standards of conduct and communication. Violation of standards may result in warnings, suspension, or expulsion as determined by forum moderators.

We believe that God is our Eternal Father and that we are His children. In all of our communication and interactions, we treat each other as children of God.

We believe that Jesus Christ is our Savior. We seek to conduct ourselves as disciples of Christ.
We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the organization of His church were restored through the prophet Joseph Smith. We sustain the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles as prophets, seers, and revelators. We support them as having authority to receive revelation to guide the Church. In exploring and discussing gospel doctrines and church policies, we proceed with the premise that prophets are inspired leaders called to speak for the Lord.

We participate in Nauvoo as equals. We bring to forum discussions such knowledge and ideas as we have gained through study and experience; however, we do not seek special privilege for our ideas. We may demonstrate our ideas with reference to scripture or to the published teachings of latter-day prophets, as well as through personal experiences and our own best reasoning; however, if our sources must remain private, then we should not contribute to the discussion.

We respect the fact that members come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences and have differences in interpretation and opinion. We may prefer our own ideas and feel them to be well-supported by scripture and by latter-day prophets. At all times, we humbly admit that our own understanding may be limited, and that further light and knowledge will increase our understanding.

We avoid the spirit of contention. If we think that another’s ideas are contrary to the gospel, we do not strive to prevail in a debate or to argue that person into silence or submission. We set forth our own understanding with patience and kindness. As disciples of Christ, we are merciful to each other and assume that members speak and act with the best of motives.

We keep sacred those things which belong in the temple. We do not publicly discuss temple covenants. We do not quote temple teachings unless they can be found in scriptural sources which can be cited.

We welcome and encourage inclusive communication which expresses compassion, regard, and humor. We avoid divisive communication which expresses sarcasm, cruelty, and light-mindedness about sacred things. We refrain from using language that is generally regarded as coarse or blasphemous.

We seek unity, not division, among us. We emphasize our commonalities over our differences.

Welcome to Nauvoo!

I thought this would be an interesting way to find out about peoples' GC preparation, and also to try out polling.

I have turned on the calendar feature. This shows members' birthdays when they have entered them. If you put the year it will show how old you will be that day. If you didn't then obviously it can't say.

There are some set holidays in the system and I have added a few - pioneer day, JSj's birthday and when he and his brother were martyred, church organisation date. If anyone can think of other annual events to add please let me know and I will put that in the data table.

At present only the administrators can add calendar items. Just let me know if you want a specific one adding (like Nauvoodles meetings, etc). It may be that we open it up to members adding dates. What think ye?

Brothers and Sisters,

I believe that the move to New Nauvoo has been a relatively painless one, and allowed us to maintain our associations, discussions and expand upon both.

I created the forum on the 21st January, so we are 2 months in.

For all the Stats ( I love that hymn, especially when I get to play it on the organ ) go to http://nauvoo.site/forum/index.php?action=stats

Welcome first to anyone coming from Nauvoo.com.

Second, a welcome to those who are new to the "Nauvoo" experience.

This is a place for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to come and feel the benefit of active discussion without the influence of non-members detractors.

Anyone seeking to cause offence will be removed.
