If you are not LDS, this quick post will be VERY boring and meaningless to you.
If you ARE LDS, this quick post will still be boring and meaningless, but at least you will be familiar with what I'm talking about.
This morning I see on FB that a friend is packing to go somewhere. I comment and ask her where. She responds and says, Women's Conference at BYU.
And I sit there and go, "Wow. Why haven't I heard anything about that? I'm thinking this is the big ol' once a year thingy they do."
I've never been, and I guess it probably happens at the same time each year. Is there a secret I'm missing? I know, I know, I've only been a member for 34-8 years of my life, so I'm still getting the hang of things.
I go to church (not always willingly) every Sunday, unless I'm traveling somewhere, or if one of the kids are sick. BTW, I don't travel anywhere. But I don't go to Relief Society, instead I teach Primary.
So what I'm wondering is....where do they advertise for stuff like this? Announcements in Sacrament? Oh, wait, notes taped to my mailbox? This is where I think the Church is missing the boat.
e-mail. Gotta use it.
Don't feel bad for me. If I DID actually know about it, would I go? Probably not. #1) because who would I leave my kids with that isn't already going or doesn't have a zillion of their own kids? #2) because quite honestly, sometimes the feedback I hear from this conference is so over the top, you-should-have-been-there, ooey-gooey, saccharine-sweet, that it turns me off. It's like eating candy after a good tooth-brushin'.
Maybe I'll catch it next year.
