Sacrament at Home Church

If we start having our meetings at the chapel, depending on the restrictions, Sister Gui and I might not be comfortable attending in person just yet. We would appreciate being able to attend on-line. I assume we would continue to do our own sacrament in the home like we are doing now.  

I actually prefer NOT doing it online.  The sound is never quite right, but more importantly the feeling is different.  Since the sacrament itself is still not online then I would prefer just doing it all offline.

No, it don't think church was cancelled for 5th sunday, my ward met on the 30th, and it was my first time back since March. I think it must have been a decision local to your own area.

Church was nice, it was nice to be back and see ward members, my husband and I were socializing, probably more than we were supposed to, because as we walked in we kept seeing people who stopped us to talk,  before sitting down--but we had our masks on and did not touch or hug anyone.  During the songs, we were to listen to the hymns, but I found that I couldn't help myself and started humming and then my husband joined in.  It was nice to hum along, which I see no danger in doing, as we had our mouths closed and masks on.

Our ward is told they can hum.

We play our Zoom on Sony computer speakers. They sound better than the built-ins. While I would prefer attending in person, I don’t mind the different feel.

Our neighbor recently joined the Church. His fiancé’s daughter (his future step-daughter, former members of our ward) who was serving a mission in Virginia got permission to teach him the discussions via Skype. Seems like that worked Spirit-wise.

A while back Ahab assured me he had not sinned in years.

True.

Two witnesses and all that.

It's not a problem with our speakers.  Since they are doing it with people there the problem is either having whatever device they are using too close to the speaker with the mic on which makes feedback when coming through to us or too far which means we don't catch all they are saying.  

When my family has done zoom in our houses we didn't have these problems. Nor did we when we had a funeral with the funeral being outside.  

But we have had really bad problems tech-wise in this chapel for years.  We have not all fit in the stake center for stake conference so they always stream it to the other chapels.  Then they rotate who comes to the stake center and who is in the other chapels.  They practice ahead of time to get things working and it does!  They turn off wifi in the building so that won't interfere.  Still on the day of conference there is tech problem after tech problem and you miss a lot of the sound and/or video.

So I'm glad it is available for you and others, but I'm happy to do without it.

How about them Hymn Hummers,

Ain’t they euphoric?

Sittin’ there hummin’ hymns

Modern and historic.

 

Hummin’ they anthems, 

Hummin’ they canticles,

Hummin’ they spirituals,

Hummin’ like fanaticals.

 

Look at them Hymn Hummers,

Ain’t they paradisical?

Hummin’ they gospel tunes, 

Not a bit pharisaical!

 

Them hemmin' hawin’ Hymn Hummers

Sittin’ in they pew,

Openin’ up they hymnals,

Hummin’ Hymn Number Two.

 

How to to be a Hymn Hummer?

No need to gum it.

Just pick yer favorite hymn,

Then rise up and hum it.

Hmmmm ...

There once was a hymn hummer from Blight

Who hummed hymns from morn until night.

His deportment was dicey,

But he hummed a good high C,

So the choir thought he was alright.
