I feel as though the Mormon church has been in the media quite a bit lately. Maybe I'm just noticing it because I live in DC and you can't escape having news thrown at you 24/7. Here is a random sampling of articles from the Washington Post -
The Mormon Retirement Plan
Evangelicals, Mormons and the Beliefs of the President
Andy and Amos and The Book of Mormon
A Latter Day Saint of the Book of Mormon Musical
Mormon Missionaries in DC
The Mormon Test
Are Mormons Better Leaders?
Crystal City is "Little Provo" for Mormons
Chapel for Single Mormons Comes With Pressure to Marry
Where is God (and the Mormon church) in a Natural Disaster?
These are only a few, there are a ton more about The Book of Mormon Musical that I intentionally left out. Sheesh. This is only within the last two months.....I think the Washington Post has a bit of an odd obsession with "our kind".
Oh, and then this happened........
Two Sundays ago I got to church and saw the television crew. Apparently PBS is doing a segment on being single in a religion that has a strong focus on marriage and family. Great. I can't get away from this, can I?
It will be airing tonight - check your local listings if you're curious about what I wore to church that day.
