The discreet church photo

I doubt i'll ever become as adept at the sneaky church photo taking as cindy, but with plewe's encouragement I tried my hand at it today. I had to. I don't know when else i'll get the chance to see this mural again. One of my favorite memories of attending roosevelt ward was getting to stare at the joseph smith mural above the pulpit. I once thought it was simplistic, but with enough pondering I learned to appreciate it. I was attending roosevelt ward (westminster institute building) today because there was a change in the bishopric. In this photo bishop bain is beginning the meeting. One of my favorite lines today was when ed said, "i adore it," in reference to his baby's bodily excretions. I also loved the thought bishop bain shared about how the grandness and joy of god's blessings are greater than you can ever imagine. He's right.

Thanks for taking a sneaky church photo! That sure was a beautiful building to meet in every week.

glad you liked it! i actually thought if anyone would appreciate my sneakiness it would be you since you are so far away and i recall you really enjoyed sitting through testimony meetings. =) anyway, i am glad i could document that mural - even if it is a bit blurry.

Not that I'm one to rate church meetings, but that one was enough to clobber me with emotion ... pretty much the whole way through. Bain and Cope will be sorely missed.
