It's been awhile since one of my crazy times posts! It's your lucky day; the time has come once again for the latest issue. (Don't hit "delete"! 😆) It really is "crazy" that in some ways things have gotten crazier since the summer with, among other things, all of this vaccine mandate nonsense (or "malarkey," as a certain terribly inept president would say).
Sadly I feel that time has proven me more right than wrong since the summer--the vaccines don't seem to work nearly as well as they've been advertised to. And I think a lot of vaccine-related injuries and deaths are happening that are not getting reported in the news.
But I've grown more confused about this issue because my church supports the continuation of mask-wearing at church (which I don't like but don't have a big problem with) and is urging members to get vaccinated (which I clearly do have a problem with). I don't understand or agree with the vaccine recommendation. Perhaps in another post sometime I'll write more about my thoughts, theories, and ideas about why I think the Church is doing this, but for now I'll hold off and say that my faith in Jesus Christ comes first, and this doesn't impact it or my testimony in any significant way. I'm still stalwart and strong, even though for the first time in my life I find myself seriously questioning Church leadership about an issue that I don't think should even be a Church issue...but I also realize that there are quite possibly things of which I'm not aware that explain why they would hold such a position, and that it's possible I'm wrong in my vaccine resistance. I don't think I am, but I could be. I've prayed and pondered and gone to the temple with this and I honestly don't feel that I need to get this vaccine. In any case, I will never question my Savior, and I will remain loyal and true to His gospel despite my questions about some of the things happening right now in His church. Everything will be explained and make sense in a future day.
Anyway, on to the business at hand!
