    When you pronounce the blessing, bless the container, not the oil, and then see if anyone corrects you.

    Or use anything less than 100% olive oil.

    Disco ball, colored lights, play "The Final Countdown" leading up to consecrating the oil?

    We do meet on the stage, so I could have the lights down low with a spot light or two on me.

    I taught priesthood last week. The topic was the sacrament, and as part of my lesson, I printed out a bunch of different symbols that have meaning for us today. Of course, it was when I was holding up a swastika in front of the class that one of the women in the ward came in to get some books she'd left on a chair. Timing is everything.

    I was going to share the picture of my wife's cousin (Derik Stevenson) flipping off the camera in the Ute locker room that he'd just posted the day before (it's a symbol) but I chickened out. Plus, it would have been hard for the class to see on my phone.

    That's exactly what the guy in my Elder's Quorum taught. Weird. Wonder if you are in my ward?

    I hate it when conference talk titles are misleading. I'm teaching EQ on Sunday and my assigned reference talk is Elder Ballard's talk from October. The title is "Put Your Trust in the Lord." Okay, there's some interesting things I can do with that given some recent history. Subtitle: "Become engaged in doing what you can in sharing the great message of the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ." Another member missionary lesson.

    You know your lesson is in trouble when the material dedicates a whole paragraph admitting to the fact that most members tend to roll their eyes or tune out discussions about missionary work.

    We had a reference to "Klingon" Skousen today. I kept asking myself if I misheard that, but my wife confirmed that I didn't.

    After all the whining, the lesson actually turned out pretty well with above average participation and head nods.

    Why not from your own life? You've started preparing asking the internet to do your lesson for you the night before instead of during the opening hymn of sacrament meeting. How many EQ teachers can claim that?

    Did they just ask you to teach. Maybe you could point out that having time to prepare helps.
    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf
