OK, with one of the wettest winters in recent history in my neck of the woods (I've had sandbags out for going on 3 months now), flooding is a daily occurrence in my life.
But I'm not talking about water today folks.
I know I'm a sporadic (at best) blogger. And since I took a new job last August, I've had so little time (and when I do I just don't have the drive to blog). But today I had some time, and I also saw this morning that John Dehlin posted on FaceBook about an announcement at 10:00MST. Turns out it was the release of his Mormon Stories Vlog #700 - How the LDS Quorum of Twelve Apostles Think – Enemies List and “Area Business Weekends”. While I didn't really get much out of the podcast, it did inspire me to make another post - or series thereof.
If anyone has actually read my earlier posts, I made a request for a scripture app that I could use INSTEAD of Gospel Library/LDS.org where I could import (and thus preserve) both my annotations, as well as my "journal entries" where I often write thoughts that I have relating to scriptures, and have saved a few talks I've given,, and things that others have published. I was originally concerned that should a - lets say less understanding - priesthood "leader" decide my time in the church™ is up, that I'd still have my "work product."
A few months ago, I log on to my Gospel Library app. It auto updates, and when it's done, lo and behold, no more "journal entries."
I ultimately was able to find and then "convert" the entries to the new app, and save them (or at least the ones that were still there - I don't know that any were doctored or removed, but I wouldn't be surprised to find that some were.)
In any event, I've decided to do what I threatened to do last year, and just post these entries here.
If anyone has comments on them, I'd be thrilled to hear your thoughts.
I won't guarantee I'll respond, or that if I do it will be prompt, but please don't let that stop you.
And so, without further adieu (take that Jacob 7), here we go.
