Based on NG's comment about wishing she could incorporate this quote into a talk suitable for church consumption, the board of directors of The Chronicles of Tewkesbury have decided to call Aitch Emm to be the bishop (see the comments of the aforementioned blog entry for this latest development) in these parts.
If there's a calling you'd like in the Tewkesbury Ward, please sign up here and it's yours! No worthiness checks required. You don't have to pay tithing or watch annual conferences or attend any extracurricular activities. In fact, I'm not sure what the benefits of being here will be, but I can at least promise there will be no guilt and no hints of eternal damnation if you choose not to park your butt in the cyber pew.
Please note, though, if you're a guy (and I'm sorry to do this), you might have to wait in line for callings and recognition. It's not that you're less valued. It's just that your place in the Plan is, well, special and divinely focused. The Men Who Know will realize just how revered they really are by us and will perform their special calling with grace and dignity and perfection.
Oh, and they will be in charge of refreshments too. Krispy Kreme is a must.
Thanks to Sister Mary Lisa for her guidance and inspiration regarding the Role of Men in the Church of Whatever You Want This to Be of Rockin' Women.
