We’ve talked about this before, and yes it’s not a serious or researched topic, but –
The Bloggernacle is a little community. We’re not an e-ward (yet!), but certainly we have a sense of each others’ personalities and proclivities. So if you’re setting up a Bloggernacle ward, who gets what calling?
Preliminary note: if you’re not mentioned it’s probably because I wrote this quickly and forgot you. It’s not a snub (except for those of you — and you know who you are — who are my sworn enemies).
Bishop: obviously the most interesting pick. The problem is that most people who would be great at the task also don’t have time for it. They are too busy out there helping people in the real world. I nominate a couple of people, and they can do rochambeau (loser is bishop): Jim F., Mark Brown or Guy Murray. Just kidding, Guy – I only picked you to force you to shave that beard.
RS president: Margaret Young. Easy pick. She rounds out her presidency with Rosalynde Welch and Tracy M.
HP group leader: Ray. He seems the type.
EQ President: David Brosnahan of LDS Doctrine. He seems tireless.
I’m EQ instructor.
HP instructor: Kevin Barney.
Temple Prep: Bryce Haymond. That should make him happy.
Rusty makes the programs. Plus it keeps him from doing any real damage.
High council speaker: Raymond Takeshi Swenson.
YW president: Rebecca J., together with Susan M. and Jeans from Beginnings New.
YM President: DKL, together with Matt Evans and Ben Pratt. Gotta keep those youth CONSERVATIVE.
Gospel Doctrine teacher: Julie Smith, naturally, and Kevin or Jim F. (whichever isn’t bishop).
Ward Mission Leader: Bookslinger
Gospel Essentials Instructor: John Crawford
Music Director: Kristine Haglund
Organist: D. Fletcher
Tithing clerk: Frank McIntyre
Membership clerks: Scott Bosworth + Ziff from ZD.
Strengthening the Members Committee Informant: Adam Greenwood.
Exec. secretary: Brad Kramer. He knows all.
Ward Historian: Ardis P.
Ward Librarian: J. Stapley.
Public Affairs: Emily Jensen.
Activities Committee chairman: Mike Peterson
Road show director: J. Max Wilson.
Emergency prep coordinator: Connor Boyack
Nursery leader: Artemis.
Welfare coordinator: Devyn S.
That’s all I had time to come up with, but there are lots of other callings out there. Note that I didn’t put anybody up for stake callings (except RTS).
