If there's anything that makes me want to be Bishop again, it's this

Here's a comment I recently received:

As a currently serving stake president I must say that I am completely disgusted at the content of this blog.

Here's what I wrote back:

To the person serving as Stake President that is disgusted at the content of the blog, all I have to say is thank you for your kind words of encouragement. So many of the comments we get are mostly about how great this blog is and how the spirits of the saints have been lifted by reading this.

Many faithful have come here as a refuge from the world of garbage and trash, like that show on TV with Snooki. Then, they leave a comment and mention how this blog has helped them become a better person. In fact, one person, after reading this blog, decided to adopt a chinese baby instead of her previous plan of just getting a dog. (It was going to be a Yorkshire Terrier).

Your comment has given me the inspiration to want to continue the blog and do something about the disgusting content. You will be happy to know that I've already removed 3 out of the 10 pictures showing cleavage on this site! I will ask our own Stake President, President Martin (he's very tall and I like many of his suits) if he will make me Bishop again. I doubt he will. But it doesn't hurt to ask. Thank you for reading. Just like Jesus, we appreciate every person.

Also, Stake President, thanks so much for letting me know you are a Stake President. I'm so impressed! If you hadn't mentioned it, I would have thought you were only a cub master. Bless you.


If there's anything that makes me want to be called as Bishop again, it's that fellow's encouraging words.

I love how you can be having the worst day, and then just one blog comment can completely lift you up out of your sadness. :D

The spirit is strong in this post Bishop, and I pray that tall, well dressed SP will call you back to being Bishop again of the ward. Jesus name, Amen.

Bishop Higgins, can we petition President Martin on your behalf? My testimony would be strengthified if you were to become Bishop once more.

As a former nursery leader, I feel that stake presidents ought not flaunt their callings. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

....still makin' me laugh! I hope your new calling is ward comedien/photog. specialist to the old single adults. Love ya!

I knew you'd come back to the fold sooner or later! I just kept prayin' that you would.

Also, Jesus has a sense of humor. Sure of it. The proof is in the pudding. Literary, have you ever thought about pudding? It's texture and what it's made of? Seriously. Jesus helped us make pudding, and pudding is funny, therefore Jesus has a sense of humor.

Brother Higgins as an inspired stake president I knew (by inspiration, I might add) that making that comment would inspire you to seek out your previous calling and continue your blog.

While seeking this position in the church may result in you being relegated to the telestial kingdom I will do my best to speak up for you at the judgement day of our lord.

Sincerely,

President Paternoster

So glad you are back. You made my day.

If you become Bishop again your clerk won't have to fudge Sacrament Meeting numbers. With someone as righteous as you leading the fold, you probably have the fire chief turning people away. Welcome back.

Alison said...

Many are called, but few are chosen. And the chosen ones get to be bishop whenever the heck they feel like it.

LDS Bookstore said...

Welcome back. We have a lot to discuss.

Kacy said...

I'm just a primary teacher so I don't have a lot to say.

Jen said...

I just found this blog. Please Bishop - come back... I need your inspiration.

Bishop, I must confess - reading this post gave me an eyegasm
