While there may be lots of discussion about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints here, I wish to remind everyone that ‘Missionary Mum’s Meeting Place’ is not an official LDS blog, and the opinions and comments made herein are my own and may not, in some cases, represent official doctrine or church policy.
I will make every effort to represent the church honorably, but please recognise that we are all imperfect, and I may make comments from time to time that could be misleading. If this is the case then I will make every effort to correct them
Code of Conduct:
I would also like to remind my guests that there are some things that are just too sacred to discuss in a public forum, so please don’t be offended if I do not allow certain comments or responses.
My motto is…
“Keep Sacred Things Sacred”
The Privacy of Others:
‘Missionary Mum’s Meeting Place’ is the perfect forum to share some of the experiences that our missionaries are having. I will be encouraging guests to share some of these experiences. However, it’s important for me to emphasise here two things:
1. We need to be mindful of the privacy of others. Particularly when we are discussing various conversion stories, or the personal lives of investigators. These people are on the brink of discovering who they are and seeking change in their lives. Let’s allow them to make this change on their terms, not on ours in a public space.
2. Our missionary children are precious. There are individuals (and groups) out there who will go to any means to thwart the work they are doing, including personal attacks directed towards them through letters, emails and other means. Let’s offer them some protection here by not revealing too much information about them. Please keep details of who they are and where they are serving to a minimum. My suggestion would be to just use first names and no other identifiers. This blog is more about the work they are involved in than who they are and where they are serving.
So, if you wish to share information about specific individuals, please seek permission from them before doing so, and try not to use full names or locations.
