Get to know your ward members

This week's profile: Gavin Auggler

Gavin Auggler tells me that growing up with unusually large ears was not as difficult as you might think, thanks to a mother that used to tell him, "Gavin, those enormous ears of yours are Gods way of saying thanks for being such a good listener to everyone in the pre-existence" and she also used to say that God was telling him "because you have such big ears, I promise you will not get cancer or Crohn's disease, although I can't say for sure about Carotenosis." Gavin has been in the ward for 12 years and has served on the high council and the low council as well as a Sunday School teacher and they guy that keeps everything up to date on the bulletin board. We are glad he's in our ward. Even though one of his ears is just outside the ward boundary. Just kidding. His whole body is in our ward. We love you Gavin.

Wow. You are obviously not a bishop. A real bishop would never say anything like you are saying on this site. I don't know who you are...but please stop this.

This site is stupid. Why do you mock my church? You are obviously not an LDS Bishop. Please stop this nonsense.
Thank YOu

To the person that left the comment with the name "a real Mormon". First of all, you forgot to capitalize the word "Mormon". The Lord hates it when people do that. Second, you said this site is stupid. That's name-calling. Where in OUR church does it say it's ok to call names? I'll tell you one thing--you won't find it in the bishops' handbook. Of course you don't have the bishops' handbook. But I do. Why? Because I'm the bishop. Why do you have hatred in your heart? Return to God's loving embrace and you will see the hatred melt away. Then you will also notice that you are at least 15 pounds overweight. Is that the real source of your hatred?

Don't worry about the haters, Bishop. They obviously don't have the Spirit with them. Your blog keeps me close to Jesus, and the computer.

Wow you are harsh to that person. I don't think that being harsh is in the bishops handbook either. This site is a form of mockery to the Lds church.

If Bishop Higgins is an impostor, then how do you explain my healed leg?

Alton Graves said...

This site is not a form of mockery to the LDS church. It's a form of mockery towards certain people in the LDS church: namely those people that can't take a joke and have a little laugh at their own expense.

I'm with Kip. Some of you people have some explaining to do.

Geez, bishop, go easy on the non-believers. All they need is love. That's another "hymn" you ought to look into.

I'm just glad the good bishop is posting regularly again.

Thank you Bishop Higgins

Bishop Higgins, I wish you were my bishop. The bishop of my ward is pure evil. His golfing buddies are his counselors, he's judgmental, he doesn't know how to deal with people, and he is a grade-A jerk.
