So there's some commercials playing recently. A lot of commercials. Radio, TV, YouTube. And I've been getting some fun comments.
Some of my favorite responses:
Hi. My name is Joyce.
I like cats.
So are you going doing a big recruitment or something?
The point of the commercials is that you are normal, right?
This has been a pilot program in a few cities...Baton Rouge, Colorado Springs, Jacksonville, Pittsburgh, Rochester, Oklahoma City, St. Louis, Tucson and Minneapolis.
So WHY IS the Church doing the commercials?
Maybe it's because the members aren't talking/sharing/inviting enough. It's easy to tell someone about a favorite book or the deal you got around the corner but it's much more difficult to talk about things that really matter (why is that!?).
Plus, maybe some of us are looking for that perfect moment to declare "this is the thing that has changed my life the most, that has made the biggest difference and is helping me become someone better".
There might not be a perfect moment but it's ok... we can just start talking. We'll be fine.
My name is Marla.
I love the Muppets.
And I'm a Mormon.
