Of course the more serious an event is the greater potential there is for irreverence. When my friend Jen’s son was two he was convinced the whole thing was like a mid-meeting treat and would shout out: “I LOVE the Snackrament!” I wish I could say my most embarrassing church story was because of something wacky the kids did (I need to shout out to my sis-in-law Sarah who mooned the entire Primary when she was 3). But it wasn’t the kids. It was me.
Is it just me or is sacrament meeting a prime place for embarrassing moments? And not just the meeting, but specifically during the sacrament itself. While I have 3 whole hours to make a fool of myself in front of my congregation, it is during those sacred 15 minutes of blessing and passing of bread and water that our family is most likely to call attention to themselves.
