Church Quiz - The Vice President

You know, we talk so much about Joseph Smith and Brigham Young being the presidents of the church, but we never talk about their vice presidents. Can you guess why?

b) No one thought to write their names down so we have no idea who they were
c) The church doesn't have vice presidents. Too worldly.

Church Court: The Musical

Charlie Tibble, the ward gay, is working on a new musical called Church Court: The Musical. It's a classic tale of love and betrayal and ultimately, redemption, and even more ultimately, delicate prancing (a reoccurring theme in all of Charlie's work). He expects to have the play finished in 2014 so stay tuned for that one.

And do you think he'd get introduced like, "And now, the first prophet of the Mormon Church..." or "And now, at age 203, the oldest man on earth..."

One of the things I like most about Pippy Longstocking is her choice of modest clothing. For that same reason we would never read our children any of the stories of Jenny Thongston.
