Called to Repentance in Sacrament Meeting
I freaking kid you not!! I went to church for the first time in like a year....took my kids and my DH for a baby blessing. We went to my Dad's ward. The ward we grew up in. 4 of us 6 siblings were there attending and out of 6 siblings 5 have left the church.
Some person got up and called us by name...first and last and preceeded to tell us that we had been taught the truth and that they knew that "we" knew the truth and called us to repentece and told us to come back to the fold.
I can't even tell you how pissed I am. In front of my children none the less.
I am shocked, I have never heard of this happening. I don't know what to even think.
Can you believe this?
Lets begin with the thought that this person went to church to be there for her family. She doesn't believe in the Mormon Church anymore, but she stepped out of herself and her beliefs to do something for her family members. A baby blessing.
Now, someone gets up and has the nerve to call her out over the podium? BY NAME? Are you kidding me?
If that happened to me, I would have stood up, given a good long look at the person behind the poduim, and then left the room.
This is so out of line. I can't get over it!!
