Re: Two Hour Church

I get many of the reasons why we moved to the block program, and now the reduced version, but we killed something vital. I think "gospel purpose" crept in and took over. People forgot that community building and socializing even without any other ulterior motive at all serves a gospel purpose. Just...

The request should have been made to all adults during one of those. Not a singled out situation.
The request didn't have to be made at all. Just throwing that out there as a viable option. ;)

I just gave this a good amount of thought and checked my calendar - I have not been to a ward activity this year.
I just checked my calendar. We haven't had a ward activity this year. :P

Re: Two Hour Church

We don't socialize on Sunday. We move from meeting to meeting, sit in repeat - regurgitated lessons, and have more stressful lives. This is what I was going to say. Granted, you get the level of socializing that you put in but in my experience there's not much socializing going on during our meetin...

I may be naïve but I assumed the counsel was more ...

It is not in the pr...

Re: Small foot movie and faith crisis

Interesting. I saw the commercials and dismissed the movie as one of the lower quality animated movies, like Barnyard or something.

Re: Two Hour Church

We're playing to the lowest common denominator again, aren't we? If there's a three hour block there's an expectation that people attend all three hours.
