Ep 516 – Smackdown: The Unwritten Order of Things

Smackdown

Posted August 18th, 2018

Did you know that if you take the sacrament with your left hand, it doesn’t really count?  Or that it is disrespectful for the first counselor to sit anywhere but on the right side of the Bishop/President?  Or that using nicknames like “Liz” instead of the full and proper “Elizabeth” is pretty much an abomination in the sight of God?

If any of this is news to you, then you just don’t know the holy precious sacred unwritten order of things.  You can repent by listening to this episode as Glenn, Jake, Heather, and Bob smack down the 1996 Boyd K. Packer BYU devotional talk “The Unwritten Order of Things.”

Also — as a special easter egg —  Glenn shares the myth “Old Lady Truth,” which is episode #1 of  his new podcast MytholoGuy.  Click here if you would like to subscribe and here to sign up on the MytholoGuy facebook page.
