my peeve with our bishopric lately is that they CONSTANTLY ask my husband and i to give talks after we’ve declined every time because my husband works sundays and i’m alone with three under three. i don’t know if they think i need to feel included, or what, but it’s annoying. other than our current situation, we’ve always been more than willing to give talks and don’t give any guff.
my husband has spoken probably twice as often as i have, though i’m the better speaker (despite having a few vomiting and crying sessions beforehand, ick). my husband has been known to say things like, “husbands, it is not important to love your wives.” he just starts talking and all sorts of stuff spews out. good thing he’s cute!]]>
Oh, and Kelli, Joe is one of the Good People.]]>
And Rusty, Joe appreciated the ol’ bait and switch last week:
“Say, do you want to come over on Sunday night? Great, since you’re going to be in town, would you mind speaking in Sacrament Meeting?”
I love the idea! The only kink that may need to be worked out are those of us with pet doctrines (that a Bishopric may not know about) who will snag any chance to preach our views on something we love, but may not be wholly doctrinal about.
I’m guessing this may include many a blogger!]]>
Seriously, after hearing about your Sunday, I have no reason to complain –ever!
I don’t know why the missionaries or the people who needed rides couldn’t make the calls themselves, but it was my calling so I did it, albeit grudgingly. Every time the phone rang for that year I could feel my blood pressure rise. I still flinch when the damn thing rings.]]>
