“1 billion people’s Saviour” – Thoughts on swearing

I’ve never been one to use “bad” language. The closest I came was in high school. At the time I didn’t have much of a problem with quoting a song or a movie. I don’t remember which word it was, but one day I said something (again, quoting something), and all of my friends were […]

April 1957 Juvenile Instructor – Draw It With Chalk

As I mentioned before, I borrowed a few old Church magazines from a long-time member of my ward. I previously shared some from a May 1958 issue that had a picture of the Romney family (including a young Mitt). Here is the cover of the April 1957 Juvenile Instructor (note: this and all other pictures […]

What Church RSS feeds to I follow?

I’m a computer guy by profession. I generally feel that you can never have too much information. I love the Church, so if you mix those things together, I feel that I just can’t get enough information about the Church, or what is going on with the Church. I don’t subscribe to every blog out […]

The Vatican on YouTube

Apparently there has been a Vatican YouTube account since November 2005, but I guess they’ve just started to post about it. I found out about it on the Official Google Blog: Today we’re delighted to announce that the Vatican has launched a dedicated YouTube channel. To find out more about why the Pope has taken […]

Mormonopia added to NothingWavering.org!

I’ve had this domain for quite some time, and I had anticipated that I’d be able to blog about quite a bit. However, since I run several other sites, I just haven’t made time for Mormonopia. This year I resolved to change that. To start with, I’m trying to post something every Monday through Friday. […]

Combating Pornography church web site

The other day I was skimming through the “Let Virtue Garnish Thy Thoughts” booklet. This is a booklet that is to help people who are struggling with pornography. There is a booklet for the member, and another booklet for the Bishop. I’ve flipped through it before, but didn’t notice an LDS.org sub-domain that is reference […]

Church leaders at Inauguration and National Prayer Service

I’m sure you’ve seen many reports about this, but President Uchtdorf and Elder Ballard represented the Church at the Inauguration of Barack Obama. They stayed over, and were there for the National Prayer Service as well. The Church Newsroom posted a couple of pictures, and the Deseret News covered it as well: LDS Newsroom – […]

Church magazine web sites (sub-domains, actually)

Although the Church does have a variety of separate domain names, but it seems like it tries to keep everything on the main LDS.org domain. Many of the separate domains redirect to a section of the LDS.org domain. The same is true for most of the sub-domains. For example, I recently found out that each […]

Church Leaders to Attend Inauguration of President-elect Barack Obama

I was going to post something else today, but since it is Inauguration Day, I figured this was more timely. Last Friday the LDS Newsroom released information about their representation at a couple of inaugural events. Here is the entire release: SALT LAKE CITY 16 January 2009 The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints […]

Why do bad things happen to good people?

I’ve had a few experiences recently that have brought to mind this question. As I’ve counseled people, sometimes they are suffering because of their own actions and sometimes it is because of the actions of others. It’s a good question, and probably doesn’t have a specific answer. Why do bad things happen to good people? […]
