Sacrament Talk Policy Update - "Intros"

Ok, this has been a pet peeve of mine for a very long time, and guess what? I'm now in a position to do something about it. I'm talking about the extended introduction that most speakers use to eat up a good five minutes of their alloted time with filler.

Everyone can agree on the following, with no need for each individual to state the obvious:

  • No one WANTS to give a talk in Church

  • You hate/blame/etc the Bishopric member that asked you to speak

  • It's been too short of time since you're last talk

  • You'll never answer another phone call from that number

  • You'll find a way to get back at the offending Bishopric member

  • You learned more from preparing the talk than those in attendance will learn from your talk

  • Ask yourself, "What would Mitt Romney do?"
