You're Not Alone

When you're in church and you hear this hymn:
Does it ever make you think of these people?
And then when you finally do start going back to church six months later, do you find that you still have a hard time forgiving the ward chorister?

If so, you're not alone.

(even though right now, you're on your own)

HAHAHAHAH! Good excuse for becoming "less active"!

I suppose from this, and Blogtastica's most recent post, that I ought to be really grateful that I've never seen this show.

But saying so would be a thank-a-mony, so I won't say it.

Sad, I know who thay are! I think more of "Rage Against the Machines" "Killing in the Name of"! And I'm old!

Wanders said...

I have no clue who those people are. So I'm safe! My testimony will remain intact.

I'm going to guess these are Utah celebrities of some sort and leave it at that.

Brother Matsby, Congratulations on your Mormon of the Year award! What a surprise!

Brother Wanders, I thought we were friends. I guess you have proved me wrong.

Thanks Sister Christy!

I was also surprised when the votes came back unanimous. I thought Brother Schroeder would have at least got one vote. Ah well, better luck next year, brother.

There are some good things about being old. One of them is that you stopped watching MTV sometime in the 1980's when they stopped playing music videos 24/7, and therefore, you are not familiar with The Hills. Another is ... well, I can't think of any others.

Oh, and thanks Brother Matsby, for song-bombing me. I would never have made this connection when singing "For the Strength of the Hills" in Sacrament Meeting, but of course now it will be unavoidable. Do I get a "get out of church free for six months" pass?

I used to enjoy the song, "High on a Mountaintop" until I realized just who one of the verses was speaking about:

"Her light should there attract the gays
Of all the world in latter days."

Suddenly I feel the need to reread the Proclamation on the Family....

Brilliant!

It's fun to be out of touch with people in their 20's. I had to look up who these people were and then it made me roll my eyes. No! I'm becoming my mother!

Great timing! I have tithing settlement Sunday and I was just trying to figure out how I could explain to the Bishop why I have been less active for the last 6 months! It sounded really lame to say that 8 a.m. was just too early to get to Sacrament Meeting. Now I can blame it on the music selections. Awesome.

BTW - How is my friend Hma Alepuz in the Shroedernacle? I shared a piso with her during my mission! She is one rockin' Spaniard!

Matsby said...

Ah Hermana Alepuz is part of the greater Regis community. She's good people.

MTV is Babylon with dope
They'll crush your hope
Their mouths need soap.

No sir, Brother Matsby, you are not alone!
