My question is how to interpret that. Do I take a more strict interpretation and say that a husband or a wife should not be given the statement for their spouse? Or is it allowable to take perhaps a slightly more lose definition and in a traditional nuclear family, just put the entire family's statements in one envelope and give it to either parent?About one month before tithing settlement appointments begin, the clerk should print and distribute a "Tithing and other offerings" statement for each donor from MLS [...] This information is confidential, and steps should be taken to safeguard it. These reports should only be distributed to the donor or to their legal guardians.
And related to this, am I to interpret this to mean that if I'm knocking on someone's door to deliver the statements and a child (younger or older) answers the door, I can't give the statements to them in an envelope to give to their parents if the parents are not home? [Or would this be allowable since it would be essentially like mailing it...]
I don't want to be pharisaical, but I don't want to do something I'm not supposed to either. Just trying to get an idea for what the right balance here is.
