Hosanna Shouting / Righteous Anger

No Priesthood holder should ever raise his voice and shout at his wife or children. Unless of course, it's a Hosanna Shout.

I Hosanna Shout at my family all the time.

It's a good way to let them know you mean business - and yet still set an example.

After posting this, I got that old Tears For Fears song stuck in my head.

You know, the one from that Mormon album they made?

"Hosanna Shout! Hosanna Shout! Let it all Hosanna out! There are the thing we can do without..."

Melanie J said...

Does this also work for Hallelujah? Or is that a little too Southern Baptist/heathen-ish?

Matsby said...

Shouting Hallelujah? I don't think it works like that.

You can SING Hallelujah.

Especially if you're Brother Cale or Brother Buckley.

What about 'crying' as a form of yelling? Lots of crying in the BOM.

Lori Ann said...

Is there a 'Hosanna freak out'? I am just curious, because when I do freak out, I want it to be sure I am doing it in a way that is pleasing unto the Lord:)

I thought of the Temptations version. You know they went LDS right? Gladys Knight shared the gospel with them.

"Well, you know you make me wanna Hosanna Shout! Kick my heels up and Hosanna Shout! Throw my hands up and Hosanna Shout..."

Ya know the Schroedernacle really is useful. I thought that I'd learned everything there is to know about child rearing from Dr Spock and Barney Fife, and then Matsby transcends them all....

Matsby said...

Thanks, but I don't make the gospel, I only teach it.

Noelle said...

Matsby, your post is really inspirational. Now I better understand the gospel.

Do you throw a white handkerchief at them while you shout Hosanna???

brossettelewis said...

Great minds Sarah! I was thinking the same thing. I need to get more handkerchiefs and I'll just keep a few on me for "when the spirit calls" i'll "be prepared".

I did need to know if getting them wet and whipping them {ya know like with pool towels in "battles for righteousness" } is ok?

<--needs to learn how to italicize in comments.

Thanks I now see Tears for Fears in a different light. "Everbody Just Wants to Rule the World They Make"

Does " Horrah For Isreal" work?

What would happen if one Hosanna shouted AND dusted their feet off at a residence? I'm not sure but I think it'd be a sight to see...or hear?

Hosanna......I love you
You're the shout, the shout for me...

The song "Hosanna Shout at the Devil" by Motley Crue has just taken on a deeper spiritual meaning to me. I knew those guys weren't all that bad.
Thanks for your insights!
