Scruffy, I would personally LOVE to join your online group!

Though admittedly, as much to hear a proper Scottish accent as anything. <3

You'll hear quite a range. We have Scots, English, Maori, South African, Thai, and US members in the ward

You're a good man and a compassionate leader, ScruffyDog. Thank you for caring for members of our Nauvoo family, even though it's not part of your official calling.

I'm with you, dy. I love Irish and Scottish accents. When my husband and I went to Ireland for our honeymoon, we went to the zoo. As I waited for my honey to return from the restroom, one of the workers talked with me. I genuinely had no idea what he was saying. When honey came to me and we took our leave, he said, "What were you talking about? You had a look on your face that said you were enthralled with his story." He laughed when I confessed I had non idea...just loved listening to the guy talk. LOL!

We will begin limited return to church beginning this Sunday. Our ward will be broken up to 2 sessions each Sunday limited to no more than 25 attendees. Essentially, we are assigned a date and time and will be required to check in (to prevent too many people), wear face mask, sanitize at the door (hand sanitizer will be given by ushers), sit in assigned seat, no singing, limited restroom use and must clean after use. So essentially, you will attend once a month to partake in the sacrament. The 2nd meeting each Sunday will be broadcast on Zoom so those who are staying home that Sunday or chose to not attend at all may participate in the meeting. Sacrament can still be done in the home. If anyone is in a high risk category or simply chooses to not attend but do not have access to priesthood authority can request the sacrament be brought to them.

I genuinely had no idea what he was saying.
There was an Elder from Scotland in my MTC district. On the second day, we came back to the classroom from lunch and sat down at the desks. He said to me, "Ahmimabibbo" I looked at him. He repeated and pointed at the bottom of the chair. I kind-of shook my head. He said, "Seisho," which is the Japanese word for Bible we had just learned that morning. Then I understood: "Hand me my Bible." I wonder if we Yanks are equally incomprehensible, at first, even though we speak the same language.

Now we know that even  though the returning to meetings will start Aug 9th, they will continue Sunday broadcasts too. I don't know if they will be the same as now or from someone's sacrament meeting -minus sacrament or what. Since those in high risk may not want to come etc.

I asked my 4 teenagers which they'd prefer, go with all the regulations (so you may not be able to chat with friends) or watch at home. I thought they'd prefer the comfortable couch. All want to go to church. We'll see what more instructions we get, if the half and half of the ward can go every Sunday or one half one Sunday and the other the next Sunday.

Scruffy, I haven't received any email invites or notifications (and I checked my spam folder), so I don't know if it didn't go through or I'm looking in the wrong place or what.

3 of my kids have gone to outdoor youth activities this week that were presented as though they were going to make sure the kids were distanced. They absolutely made no effort. One group loaded cars up after the activity to go get snow cones; I was the only one who requested my child wear a mask. So she had to sit up front and be singled out. They're having all the youth for a dinner and bishop discussion on Sunday, and in 2 weeks they're putting all the youth in cars to spend the day at a reservoir an hour away. I guess my kids just don't go to activities now.

Our county has the highest spread of any in Idaho, and Idaho is bad right now. We're not a high population state, but daily we have between 300 and 800 new cases a day, and multiple deaths. I'm friends with most of the youth leaders and ward council, and I can't imagine what on earth they're thinking about. We seem to be literally the only family in our ward who cares. Our bishop, who is a good friend for years, is a healthcare provider. 😩

Jen, our ward is bad, too. We even have some vulnerable people in the ward who had COVID, including a disabled teen who was in the PICU for over a week. At the same time another ward member was screaming about refusing to wear a mask in defiance of the county mandate because 'muh freedom.' The stake leadership didn't fully understand that our county's rollback was to a MODIFIED stage 3 which did not, according to the official health district documentation, have a religious exemption (which the stake presidency was trying to claim there was) allowing double the amount of people in a meeting. The one time we met in the chapel in June, not a single leader wore a mask. Not one.
I am very grateful that literally the day before we were supposed to meet a 2nd time, the stake presidency decided to shut things down again. I don't know if my forwarding the health district mandate to the bishop or that other member being rude in the ward facebook group helped prompt that decision, but I am grateful.

I'm tired of being the squeaky wheel and it's never brought any good, anyway. I think my family and I will just quietly worship at home. If anyone asks why my kids aren't going to things, I'll give it to them straight, but I'll be kind, and we'll just keep doing what we're doing.

One of my long-time friends from my ward just posted basically that if we believe and post things opposite of the far right conservative talking points, we're not really Christian and we're hypocrites on Sunday. That hurts. I'm so done right now.

Jen, I'm so sorry. That's horrible. I've been getting similar pushback from relatives (not Mormons). It's worse now that I'm in the same country as most of them, but I'm not changing my stance just because they're behaving badly or don't listen to science.

Jen, I feel that on a visceral level in regards to our ward.
