I predict no impact on my life.

Well, perhaps a few active members will try to tell me about how great and inspired the new block is in an effort to get me to attend.

Even when I attended, I would only go for sacrament meeting with the family. I'd then skip out of the other meetings, either heading home or to some restaurant for breakfast/lunch/beer, while the kids went to primary. So, if I were to return with the family, I'd now only get one hour of free babysitting instead of two.

That two hour meeting time sounds great to me. I hope it is not a burden for others. I wonder if the presenters during the 50-minute meeting will still more or less wing it every week?

Here's some predictions, from a non Prophet in early 2017...

And it seems a Stake President in Boston received the revelation before Nelson did...3 years before.
Quote:
In 2015 the Boston stake did apparently pilot such a program for exactly that reason. But the part of the story that the rumor mill neglects to mention is that the institutional church quickly put the kibosh on those enterprising New Englanders, with the Newsroom issuing the following statement about it in November 2015:

After recognizing it was not within Church guidelines, local Church leadership in the Boston Massachusetts Stake decided to drop plans to shorten the standard Sunday worship meeting schedule. The two-month experiment set to begin in the stake in January was planned locally with good intentions to better observe the Sabbath Day.

A question for anyone that is still active...what does it look like when speaking in regards to the folks looking at devices? Does anyone pay attention anymore?

I imagine few deep dives, intermingled with mostly shallow skimming of he surface, a few misguided tiptoeings around the icy waters now and then.

I have a question wrote:

I wonder what scripture they were all looking up then, as asked by the speaker?
