We were instructed that it must be done in person.

Yes, my understanding is that any priesthood ordinance is done only in person. So ward members wouldn't be able to gather "virtually" through a conference call, all with their own bread & water, & have someone at another location bless everyone's bread & water in absentia.

A few benefits of less pollution:

- Fewer respiratory illnesses.
- Some people in India are seeing the tops of the Himalayas for the first time in over a decade.

I hope climate scientists are gathering as much data as possible during this time!

One benefit that we have had from our online meetings is that we have had a lot of less actives joining in. It will be interesting to see if they come out again once all this is over, but that could be a major blessing of an otherwise difficult situation

Families are spending time together and getting creative with awesome songs. https://vimeo.com/404483016

It’s good to remember that families are a unit.  Too often we’re going in too many different directions that when we are forced to be together, we don’t know how to act. 

Ask me how I know....
