A rottweiler tore half my 6-year-old grandniece's face off, unprovoked. The owner opened its cage and it bounded across the yard and mauled her. She'll be having reconstructive surgeries for many years to come... not to mention the period of time she wouldn't even speak and all the treatment she's needed for the trauma of it happening.

Yes, yippie dogs snip and bite and can be dangerous. But you'll never convince me that these big, strong dogs are gentle and safe as long as they're raised right. They're animals, and if they have built-in massive strength and huge teeth behind those animal instincts, they'll never be safe, period.

I've been itching to tell you all for a week, but since I don't know who might lurk here I chose not too.

However, today I was sustained and set apart as the EQP - almost 25 years to the day from the last time.

I would hope they keep the ward mission leader and committed. The purposes overlap in the ministry. Still, it is impirtant to enable more to participate and not overload the few leaders. For example, after the dissolution of the ward activity committee, it just ended up with ward council members adding activity planning duties vs sharing the opportunities to help.

Thank you for the heads up.  I was unaware of this.  I'm delighted that it seems to be written at a third-grade level.  My soul delights in plainness.  I have begun to read.  I will read more.

I think that these guidelines will be modified to fit the needs of the branches and wards, as different areas and countries
in this world wide church have different needs.

For now, I believe this policy only applies to the U.S. and Canada.

When I taught early morning seminary several years ago, another adult male was required to be there.  Usually, the dads of the students rotated days. There was a member of the bishopric on standby.  He would come over if nobody else showed up. I'm not sure if the same requirement was in place for female early morning seminary teachers.

Oh my two deep! We cant even handle one. Not enough healthy folk. And for the occasional visiting child or teen one of them plus two adults would feel overwhelming I would think.  We have a couple of young families now so in about 2 years we will have 3 in Primary about the same age, so there is hope ....but Elder Rasband is here Sunday so we will see what that means for our Stakes and wards...... as they close more and more here.

We just discussed this in ward council last Sunday. All adults who work with children and youth have to follow the "two deep" policy.  That means double primary, youth Sunday school, YW and YM teachers. It also means that a single adult can't give rides home after church activities.
This will make filling seminary callings especially challenging. At least where I live, they are all early morning classes, like 6:00 a.m., five days a week. Because of that schedule, more than any other Church calling, seminary teachers are by themselves (one adult) with teens. The teacher & students are the only ones in the building. On a Sunday, even if an adult should happen to be alone in a class with children or youth, there are swarms of other folks running around the building, providing at least some measure of security.

It isnít always easy to find people who can or will accept that calling & stick with it. If two-deep will be a Church-wide policy for every calling with ages under 18, it will become even tougher.
