I get the impression that 12+ age scout units fall under the ward YM organization and having a separate boy scout organization in MLS would just further confusion. Amazing how that works. Sounds like we're in the same ward actually. While we're in the vein, the Ward Mission should be it's own organ...

Having recently helped several members of my ward with different basic computer related issues, not a virus but just general use, like how to attach a document to an email, etc I am reminded that computers are in fact highly complex, technical, and to some, intimidating devises. With the help of my ...

I believe the IRS rate for charitable driving if 0.14 per mile, which is about what I pay for gas on a per mile basis. At least this is the rate shown on the IRS website. Standard policy should apply, you should have a receipt for your expense, and either way the Bishopric should be signing off on i...

But I can't help but think that half of the problem could be eliminated if the state membership clerk was allowed to record the ordination information instead of sending the form back to the ward. :eek: I have to say that only a Stake Clerk would think this was a good idea. :D Until recently our St...

One thing we do is ask the stake representative to have the ward record the ordination at the time it is performed. The stake rep then returns the paperwork and the certificate follows. A few of our wards think they have nicer certificate paper than the stake uses, so they will also print the certi...

The policy has very little to do with actually preventing child abuse, and for the very few cases where it does I am grateful for it. But it doesn't apply to Sisters, and women commit child abuse also, and at rates higher then are reported because people don't want to believe that women would do suc...

Like so many elements of security, the human factor is usually the greatest vulnerability. It's also the greatest strength of any security system. Reliance on technology as the main line of defense often ignores this. The "human factor" *is* the main line of defense, technology is the backup. To th...

It seems to me that if you only enter information into nFS about the members of the family for whom you are ready to do ordinance work, and leave out information about the other members of the family, you can submit only those you want to do, and avoid having to remove the others. Then when you fin...

One of the advantages of doing an entire family at one time is that a little more effort goes into identifying the individuals of a family to insure that you've got the right person. This helps avoid the duplicate ordinance problem, Duplication of work is a problem, one ancestor in my wife's family...
