1. unimportant or trivial.  "a trifling sum"
synonyms: trivial, unimportant, insignificant, inconsequential, petty, minor, of little/no account, of little/no consequence, footling, pettifogging,incidental

I have a family member who runs a baby stocking business. It seems trifling to me. But I recognize that it's important to her.

We each share things from time to time on a group text. I share things that are important to me and she shares things that are important to her. There may be some issues of concern (to me personally) in the Church that seem trifling to her, but those same things are of great importance to others.

And that's okay. We can be on a different path even though we share the same ultimate goal.

"We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may."

She stocks babies?

I wish every member of the Church accepted that article of faith as applying to each member of the Church - not just people outside the Church. I think it is the heart of what Elder Wirthlin preached and what Pres. Uchtdorf teaches regularly, and I believe it is central to the Restored Gospel.

I am convinced that the majority of the issues that bother so many of us would disappear if we simply accepted that core concept we say we believe as foundational to our religion.

So funny! See how trivial the baby "leg warmer" business is to me--I totally didn't even think how that would sound. Thanks for the laugh.
