Sunday February 26, 2006

I got the idea to start this at the end of church today, so I didn't make good notes. I don't remember everyone's names and don't have all the details.

Sacrament Meeting
One of the speakers in sacrament meeting talked about Faith being an action word and cited James 2:14, 17
14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
We also talked about this briefly in priesthood meeting.

Sunday School
We talked about Abram separating himself from Lot. Lot and Abram's workers were arguing over resources it seems. Abram had the right to choose, but he gave the choice to Lot. This could have cost Abram much money and advantage. To keep a good relationship with Lot he allowed this.
How do WE respond to conflicts with coworkers? Do we dig in and defend our positions or do we be kind and try to make sure that our coworker is uplifted? What about our interactions outside of work? What about the idea of defending our right to do this or that and losing sight of our responsibilities?
