Twitter Notes from the Oregon City Stake Conference…President Morby said I could!

1780792_10202795744202040_1017836587_nMany of you already know I enjoy tweeting General Conference. It keeps me focused and allows me to share notes that are being taken, in real time, from all over the world. It also creates a digital, web record that is being indexed by all the major search engines. This means that when someone searches anything about the Church or its doctrine my tweets have as much a chance to be in the search results as someone’s who is antagonistic towards the Church.
Fact is, my tweets and posts alone won’t do much at all. However, the combined updates, posts, tweets, pins of all of us makes a difference in what is returned on everyday searches. It really comes down to this; we have to tell our story or someone else, who hates us, will.
With that in mind, I loved the messages delivered by the missionaries and mission president in the Oregon City Stake (my stake) Conference this past weekend. In effect, President Morby asked us to get on-line, get a Facebook page, a blog, a twitter account and start telling our story. I loved it because I was, well, already tweeting stake conference. Any guilt that I may have felt for taking notes via twitter was washed away and I become a tweeting maniac. Read more of this post

The Miracle of the Shampoo

The Oregon City Stake just celebrated its 40th anniversary. One thing you need to know about the Oregon City Stake is that we don’t do things small. So as the 40th year of the Stake existence approached, a go-getter sister (aren’t they all) was called and a committee formed. The result was a wonderfully delightful evening of reminiscing and reacquainting. It reminded me of what I’m sure the Sons of Mosiah felt when they were reunited after years of being a part in the service of God. Read more of this post

The Spirit communicates with more than tears.

A few fast Sundays ago, a full-time missionary assigned to our ward bore his testimony or witness of the Savior and restoration of His Church. His was a heartfelt declaration of his love for the Gospel, Jesus Christ, his missionary companion and the members of the ward. He attempted to explain the feelings he has when he feels the Spirit. He struggled to describe the experience and finally said that, for him, it felt like when he played sports only a thousand times better.

One of the struggles persons of faith have is describing for others how they feel the Spirit. It is like describing the taste of salt – you just can’t find the appropriate words. Read more of this post

A Joy & Happiness Sandwich

I am a big fan of the sandwich. In most cases, they are typically very easy to make yet so tasty. In business terms, the “Return on Investment” for a sandwich can be so high…and so satisfying. There are really just two parts to the sandwich, first two pieces of bread and second everything in between the two pieces of bread. Simple.

Prayer, Spiritual Knowledge and a “Bye” week-end.

Another unique practice within the Mormon culture is “Stake Conference”. Its roots are based in the scriptures. Jesus Christ himself teaches His disciples to “meet together oft.” (3 Nephi 18:22) Twice a year, a “Stake” (a group of 8-12 Mormon congregations) meets together to receive counsel and instruction from local and General church leadership.
