Everybody grew up with lacing cards, right? A sure-fire way to keep the kids reverent during church. I don't see them as often as I used to, and I think it is time to bring them back - to High Priest Group meeting.
Why the High Priests? Well, lately it has seemed that we tend to veer wildly off topic - often into areas that have little or nothing to do with the lesson. It is amazing how some brethren are so adept that they can figure out a way to interject politics into a lesson about ANYTHING.
So, my hope is that these lacing cards will help some of the brethren stay occupied, so they will comment less. The caards are also topic appropriate - these things tend to come up quite often in class. I tried to make the holes extra-large for arthritic fingers and aged eyesight, because I am just trying to serve my fellow man.
Of course the first two are obvious. A week doesn't go by where one is lauded and the other castigated. Depending on the liberality of your group, I'll leave you to decide which is which.
Here is one of the Constitution. I couldn't find one hanging by a thread, but if you lace it correctly, you could get the idea.
Of course, you have to have a Jimmer for "Twine Time".
But before Jimmer there was Steve - who could Tebow before Tebow was born.
Occasionally the discussion really gets "out there". For those times, here is the "Kolob" card.
Here is a card for the older brethren, just because.
I was also able to find some "vintage" lacing cards. You might be too young to remember them.
The Mark Hoffman
And a really old Jedediah M. Grant card
And last, an iPhone card, so that perhaps we will play with this instead of our real iPhones.
