Yesterday was my husband's birthday. Yesterday he got fired. He told me he was ready to go against his firmly held beliefs about masks and agree to wear one when the boss became condescending and dismissive. At that he chose to not give in...

What if they both had agreed to disagree, swallow a tiny bit of pride, recognize that both of them might be partly right & partly wrong & no one gets their way all the time, & peacefully coexist? Now Mr. Sparky is out of a job & Mr. Boss is minus an employee.

I'm with Jana. Prayers for both of you... but golly, just golly.

Sparky, you are in my prayers.  You were so wise to prepare financially. Depression - itís so overwhelming for the person and the family. And so many people are suffering from it. I wish there was a magic pill but perhaps President Nelsonís gift to us today was a spiritual one.

On Thursday our government gave new instructions, effective on Monday. Public gatherings should be limited to 20 people. Though many things are excluded, like schools, day care, worship and pubs, or in general things for children and youth... (the last due to effects on economy). So while the sacrament meeting could be going on,  the Stake decided to move back to video broadcasts. Today was the first and if things improve the first back in person will be Dec 20th, if not, then we'll continue it. Seminary and weekly youth activities continue face to face. It was a good decision.

Our Stake Conference next weekend is entirely broadcast. The only people in the chapel will be those participating. And the presiding officer, our area president Elder Sabin, is doing so from Germany.

The stake president is changing so the interviews for the stake reorganisation will also be with Elder Sabin over Zoom and our Area Authority in person. Those being interviewed were given the choice of coming to the stake center or using Zoom.

Interesting times. I have no idea how someone wishing to oppose the vote would be able to make themselves known. With three men having to be set apart, I presume their families, or at least wives, will be allowed to be at the chapel.
Don't ask me, I only live here.

In our ward, those opposing are asked to contact their local leaders. Which is basically a more private way of dealing with the issues anyway. Some people oppose just to be contrary or because they don't like the person, in which case, if asked, they may not be able to give a valid reason. But if they DO have a valid reason, this method will let them explain, which they would have been asked to do in private after a public opposition anyway.

Andrew, we had a new stake relief society presidency and they just started serving, the old presidency did not get formally released for several months. Most new callings people have started serving with a sustaining or setting apart..they have just dove in.
