Has anyone else had the experience that home life is much better without the church since this COVID thing started? It has been almost 5 months since my TBM wife and kids have attended any church activities, but yet we have never been closer as a family in 20 years!!
The church has not been an item of contention and stress and no one has said anything about how they miss church activities. It is so obvious that this "cult" causes family friction and I only hope that my wife sees it too, probably not since she is never wrong about anything.
Any other examples of positive changes due to COVID?
Funny thing happens when you stop talking about being better people all the time and posturing for appearances and just are.
If this virus has taught us anything it is life is great when you don't care about what other people think. Many have gotten a break from the opinions of others, including mormon ones, and are able to finally be themselves. It's about freaking time!
My health has been better than ever. Since the mask thing I haven't been getting colds as often. It's great that companies are checking temperatures and sending sick people home before they can sneeze on me. I almost don't want covid to end, lol!
C'mon, mormonism, just email out the occasional revelation, put on Conference with video presentations by the usual suspects, rake in the cash and otherwise just let TBMs get to the CK as best they can.
How many priesthood holders would never wear a suit again?
Oh, yeah, temple trips... Screw it, dump those, too, after going one time and then spend the rest of your life wondering, "What in Jesus name was that all about?"
If so, what part of South Africa? (Generalize; don't get too precise about your location.)
I am sort of familiar with Pretoria/Tshwane (I was staying at Die Werf, in Lynnwood), and I drove north to Pietersburg/Polokwane one day to check out the UNISA campus located there. (I was in the midst of writing a book, which led to me to interview some UNISA administration personnel during my time there...which ultimately meant that the "inside information," about UNISA's future priorities, I received from those administrators meant that the book would never be completed.)
