Welcome to NothingWavering.org, a portal to promote mainstream and othodox
blogs about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
blogs by mainstream LDS members on topics other than Mormonism,
as well syndicated content from official LDS Church websites.
NothingWavering.org was created to provide an orthodox alternative to
existing LDS Blogging portals and will strive to be a
website to which mainstream members of the
church can direct their friends, family, fellow congregation members,
and interested non-LDS associates with confidence that the content
will be consistent with the counsel of the living Prophets and Apostles
and where Murmuring about the Church and those authorized to direct her will be
Purpose & Principles
NothingWavering.org is designed to promote the teachings of The Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and not the writings of its site administrator. Consistent with
the spirit of Zion, aggregated blogs on the portal are not distinguished
by ranks according to their chances for learning, their personal connections, or the frequency of their content.
Instead, all included bloggers are on equal ground and the newest content
appears at the top of the page and moves down as newer content becomes available.
The name "Nothing Wavering" is a reference to a scripture in the King James translation
of the Holy Bible, the Epistle of James, Chapter 1, Verses 5 through 8:
5. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men
liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
6. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he
that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.
7. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
8. A adouble minded man is unstable in all his ways.
Verse five of this passage is foundational
to the Restoration of the Gospel and establishment of the
Church of Jesus Christ
in the modern era.
We all lack wisdom, and so it is natural and appropriate to have questions. But in
asking those questions let us not forget to whom they should be addressed and that
we should ask in faith, not doubt.
NothingWavering.org attempts to be technologically progressive in promoting
the official church as well as content from orthodox individual members. The website is driven by a
RSS Feeds, email subscriptions, and embeddable widgets, allow the content of Nothing Wavering to be
easily distributed and shared. Future integration with popular social websites, like Facebook,
will continue this trend.
Additionally, a mobile version of the website for web-enabled phones and PDAs
is under development.
Experimental technologies that identify common hyperlinks between aggregated
content, as well as keyword tags, help readers identify inter-related posts
and cross-blog conversations.
Each aggregated post is given a unique, permanant url on NothingWavering.org with a
content preview and inter-related links to help promote the post's search engine
discoverability in searches for LDS and Mormon content.
The website has been designed to use standard modern web technologies,
like HTML5, CSS3, Ajax, and a pleasant color scheme and tableless layout to enhance user experience. At the same time is designed
with Accessibility and Search Engine friendliness in mind so that
NothingWavering.org is Audio and Video Podcast enabled, so that LDS podcasts can be played
directly in the site from an embedded player. This includes both Audio and Video podcasts
of LDS General Conference, which can be enjoyed right on the portal as they become available. For
an example, take a look at the Nothing Wavering aggregation of President Monson's address from April 2009 conference:
