fellowshipping in the 21st century, or, why i still don't go to relief society

In my inbox this morning:





Okay, okay, so I took a little itsy bit of photoshopetic license. But seriously, a form letter email? Yeah, that really makes me want to go next week.

It's too bad they bcc'd us on this. I'd like to know who the other apostates are so that we could get together for some remedial sunday school.

That is hilarious. Also I'm going to admit right now that I'm totally stealing the term "photoshopetic license" and will likely use it at least four times tomorrow.

hahahahaha remedial Relief Society. Just respond with your own form letter:
Dear sisteren,
I decided to take the "relief" part of the name to heart and consequently signed up for the self-paced version. Oh, you haven't heard of it?

Good grief,
Yours truly,

Oh goodness, wow. I kind of love this. It's so tacky it's come around to polite again.

Julie,
We are all self-paced, all of our lives! It is just our journey!

Please, try and refrain from sucking the life out of previous commenters' delightfully snarky comments.

I'm looking at you, Anonymous, if that is your real name...

Sister(s) in Zion (this phrase is key in any good Relief Society parody) I think you'd be surprised with all the things you can learn in RS. I even met my future wife in RS (she is a cyborg from 2015 (I know. That's coming up soon! (Keep your eyes out for her, she looks just like a completely normal human except for her prosthetic neck (Giver her a break, she's first generation cyborg)))).
[disclaimer a posteriori: I'm in the midst of writing final papers and it's past my bedtime]

There are some things I love about R.S. emails: reporting my visiting teaching, for example, or a reminder that this week the DI van will be at the church picking stuff up. What I don't like: stuff like that.

I still love you. Come have Sunday School with me.

Josh reminded me of a time when the roll came around Sunday School and next to someone's name was scrawled in red "INACTIVE". I'll leave you to ponder the terrible things that could do.

At least they notice who is gone, right? People in Relief Society can make some pretty dumb mistakes like that, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't go. Go back to Relief Society and tell them yourself it wasn't right. The church . . . and Relief Society are still true. ;)

Oh wow. I like your choice of name for the sender the best. :-)

Other apostates? Are you an apostate now? If so, welcome to the club!
