We had Fast and Testimony Meeting yesterday. Usually we have it on the first Sunday of the month. We are having a Regional Conference next Sunday, I guess that is it. Has anyone else ever had "Fast and Testimony" changed to another Sunday?

We had ours yesterday too. They said they didn't want to have two in September and then General Conference in October.

Actually, we do so several times a year, depending on conference dates.

Hey Sis!

I am glad you were put on this earth to find me funny. Not many people "get me."

( For those of you who might be wondering, Tough is NOT my literal sister. Spiritually, for sure. :) )

Diversity is part of the human experience. Only the Borg require sameness. :D
Jesus said, "The first in importance is, love the Lord God.'
And here is the second: 'Love others as well as you love yourself.'
There is no other commandment that ranks with these."

Excellent analogy!

And as a ST TNG fan...I can really appreciate all the nuances! :)

Always gets moved for conferences, twice a year for General Conference.
We're having our Stake Conference next Sunday so last Sunday was F&T... whats the big deal? Its not doctrine to have it on the 1st Sunday, merely tradition. Back in the late 1800's it was held on Tuesday nights.

Never said it was a big deal. I was just curious.

OK, its kinda hard to tell how things should be taken on message boards and I figured since you asked about it on a message board it must have bothered you.
