And it goes against the similar advice we received about not programmizing it. Guess your ward council didn't get, didn't read, or didn't understand the memo. But on the positive side, I'm fine if nobody contacts me all day. An hour and a half is a start, but if you really think about, the whole Sabbath is supposed to be sacred time.
That's pretty much my feelings on it. I like the idea of not being contacted. That's always a plus. The more of my Sunday I get to myself the better. At the same time, it's annoying that the ward council feels the need to "programize" it. But, at least everyone can enjoy their lunch undisturbed now.

Related side note: there used to be a guy in our ward who would yell at you if you called him on Monday evening. He wouldn't answer the phone, mind you, but he'd yell at you later if you left a message (pre-caller ID days).
If it were me with a guy like that and with no caller Id, I would be a little too tempted to call but not leave a message. More than once. Just for the fun of it :twisted:

I was conducting in RS last month, and I kept making the joke that we had "Only X more three hour block Sundays, so LIVE IT UP!" or "This time in a month we'll all be chillin' at home!"

I have been having trouble even going due to the three -hour block being such a drag. It's like everything is on hold until the two hour block starts.

I did meet with our SS president and told him I would get going on the teachers' council in January again.
