Baptism

I get in reading kicks every so often. I read and read and read some more. And then I get sick of it and won't read for a really long time. Like one summer I read all of Harry Potter and The Anne of Green Gables Series(1-4) and The Work and the Glory Series (1-6). Apparently, I really like seriesess (how do you make that plural?!). And then I didn't pick up another book until the next summer. Well, I am in one of my reading sabbaticals. I have a total of six books at work, but I haven't cracked one of them open since November. Just like reading, I go on journal writing kicks. Which I am glad I do, because it provides me with some great entertainment.

So when I am on my book fasts and feel guilty not reading, I go through my journals. And I find the most hilarious things, like this little gem:

2 August 2005
So today we had a downright successful day. We taught four lessons before lunch. We were feeling pretty good. And then Sister Michaelson got bit by a dog. It was a fetching horse!... We taught Tadeusz and it was so amazingly funny!! We invited him to Tomek and Benjamin's baptism on Saturday and he asked if they were going to be naked. So we told him of course not which he challenged with, "Why not?! Jesus was!"

So there you go folks, Jesus was naked when he was baptized. I hope that's not too sacriligious...

And by the way, I know I always give too much back information. You really didn't need to read about my reading habits. But that's just kind of what popped out!

Haha! That's hilarious! I get on reading kicks too and I love series books (is that the way to make it plural?) I don't know why, but I always get slightly embarrassed that I likes series so much. But I do. I just finished all the Percy Jackson and the Olympians books. (five of 'em) And I had no idea Jesus was naked. The Poles know everything...

Oh Gez... If nakedness was a requirement for baptism, I never would have gone on a mission. Or been baptized. Or opened my eyes when I walked by a font.
Disturbing.

Love it! I wish I'd kept a journal on the mish. I have all the letters I wrote to my parents- so that's pretty much my journal. Thanks for sharing!

Hee hee! Some kid on Dallin's mission said that Jesus blessed the lesbians...um we think he meant lepers?!
