The Temple Recommend issue is still a problem. My Stake President wants them done in our ward/stake. I don't see the need, but I'm not going to go to the mat with him over it.

It even goes on to explaning how to request approval to use the official Church resources to create a stake or ward web site. So if you w...

So what's the answer? The answer is Bishops and Clerks following the guidlines and not moving records unless the individual is physicly living in their ward.

@nbflint, I agree I'm also very territorial over the clerks office space. Having just been called last month the new ward clerk and myself (we were called the same day) have spent the month organizing files and trashing unneeded supplies. I don't know when they stopped sending the 3.5 diskettes to H...

JD Lessley, To allow any account to carry a deficit is not sound accounting principles, and to suggest that its OK in some instances is just plan wrong. While its possible to have a deficit in the "Other Account" does not mean its an acceptable policy, its considered a problem. And the guidelines st...
