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

This sentiment, so wrong for so many reasons, is really an indicator of one’s faith, devotion and commitment. Read more of this post

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.
