    B*** you know I'm free
    Face it girl I'm free
    Yeah you know I'm free
    Okay I'm free yeah
    Free to chain my will onto the wings of my instinct
    And wander round this box you know I'm inextricably linked
    That's right I'm free to make a sooth to catch some stuff that holds me down
    To capture my desires fashion out a viscid crown
    . . .
    I never leave I'm super free
    To fill my smiles up with the tears that I forgot
    And haunt myself beside these pretty ghosts that float my heart

    I think the part about you should ask for the Sacrament prayer to be repeated if there is a mistake that goes uncorrected but not to cause undo embarrassment/humiliation is interesting.

    Isn’t it always a little embarrassing when a kid is asked to repeat it? And obviously getting every word right is unnecessary now even for the mullahs. Seems like they could just omit all instruction about asking the prayer to be repeated. Just let the kid do his best and don’t worry about it.

    I just took the sacrament to a couple this Sunday, where the man is on hospice. They just had a cracker to use, so when I was saying (reading aloud from D&C 20) the prayer I got to the bread part and wasnít sure if I should say bread or cracker. I just went with bread since it was in the scriptures. But when I went to bless the water the scripture used the word wine, so I changed it. I then felt immediately dumb for not saying cracker in the first prayer.

    Don't. The change to 'water' in the prayer was officially sanctioned. We don't have to get that specific "bless and sanctify this pumpernickel to all those who partake of it..."

    I visited a ward on Sunday. The prayer on the water had a host of mistakes, most of which I had never heard before. The bishop smiled and nodded and the congregation renewed their covenants as the water was passed through the chapel. It was beautiful.

    Mmmm - I love pumpernickel. Had German ancestors on my mom's side so we had a minor family tradition of pumpernickel bread growing up. I don't get it much anymore because the Mrs. doesn't appreciate it.

    Nope. That sacrament didn't count. Too bad.

    I visited a ward a couple of weeks where the priest stumbled on a few words, after which the Bishop gave him that nod to do it again. What a dick.

    Last sunday my husband gave the sacto prayer, and just paused and faltered, then picked back up strong. No actual mistake but they made him do it again because he paused.

    Really bad form on the bishopric's part. As I think I've written in the distant past, when I was 16 I blessed the sacrament with a fellow priest, Ralph, who had s reading disability. He was extremely nervous to be doing one of the prayers, and he made 4-5 attempts, without success, even though the mistakes weren't major. Asked by the bishop to come in as a kind of relief pitcher, I picked up the save, but it was one of the most unpleasant assignments of my life. I don't think Ralph ever came back to church, and my lame attempt afterwards to ease his humiliation fell flat. Scarred by that experience, whenever I've presided over sacrament administration, the only times I've ever called for a replay was if the bread prayer was switched with the water prayer, and I made it a point to talk to the erring priest later to share a laugh. Pretty much as long as the correct symbol is mentioned, along with God, Jesus Christ, and Amen, I've been fine. I wish Ralph were still around...

    Geez, the kid is trying his best. So he misspoke a few of the words, no need for name calling.

    We have a bunch of old dudes with dementia in the congregation who love to go up after the meeting and point out Sacrament Prayer “mistakes” that weren’t even mistakes, just pauses or different inflections. Dumbest thing ever.

    One of my mission areas was an Indian colony in the middle of nowhere, argentina. We met in a mud chapel and the members typically brought the bread. One sunday the bread didnt arrive. No one near the chapel had any and we were miles from anywhere we could hope to find some. So we picked some grapefruit off the tree outside and used that. I drew the bread prayer and when I got to "bread" I had the same hesitancy. I actually looked at my companion who just gave me the "I dunno" shrug. I went with "pomelo" because it just felt weird calling a grapefruit bread. I hope the prayer counted.

    My son recently had to do it 5 times. It was also his first time blessing the sacrament.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    I would have been more concerned whether the fruit counted.
