For a twist this year, I solicited feedback from the congregation. They were asked to write their comments on a form included in their program. My intention was to read the appreciative comments as part of primary sharing time. The following portions of feedback notes were not included on Sunday -- but were so enjoyable I'll share them here:
"I thought it was great too, but I would have enjoyed it more if you would have had refreshments and ironed my shirt!" -- D. Henry
"Wow! The 9th ward primary has, like, the hottest 1st councilor ever!" -- Anonymous?
"Make the lady with blonde hair move - I couldn't see Emma" -- Anonymous (aka my mom)
And my favorite message, written in it's entirety:
"The program so far is pretty good but I can't help noticing that there has not been enough Damon D. (he is so funny and spiritual). I am hoping by the end he will have spoken -- written @ 1:50pm
D&C Section 4 was good / Called to Serve even better! -- still no Damon. . . . concerned
The YW performance - WOW! -- A+
Sunbeams were flat on their song. It sounded as if they just spoke it -- C-
Ethan Vincent - Nepotism -- Damon could have sang that
Maybe next year there will be more Damon"
