Faith in Every Footstep, Mormon Tabernacle Choir
With faith in every footstep, we follow Christ, the Lord;
And filled with hope through his pure love, we sing with one accord.
Most of the girls in each issue of the New Era are dressed appropriately for church (or are obviously in athletic or work clothing.) The September issue is a bit different than normal, because it’s focused on the Personal Progress and Duty to God youth achievement programs, but there are still lots of pictures. The girls start in the “Special Issue: Personal Progress” section.
A good visual guide for what’s acceptable at church.
Immodest clothing includes short shorts and skirts, tight clothing, shirts that do not cover the stomach, and other revealing attire. Young women should wear clothing that covers the shoulder and avoid clothing that is low-cut in the front or the back or revealing in any other manner. Young men should also maintain modesty in their appearance. All should avoid extremes in clothing, appearance, and hairstyle. Always be neat and clean and avoid being sloppy or inappropriately casual in dress, grooming, and manners. Ask yourself, “Would I feel comfortable with my appearance if I were in the Lord’s presence?”
(I’m trying everything I can think of to keep myself from going back to bed.)
I grew up in a confusing religious environment. My dad and mom were members of a secular humanist “church” when I was born. When they split up, my mom eventually got together with a friend from high school, who had in the interim become Mormon. They got married, and she joined the church. Thus was begun the Great Challenge of Demeter’s Childhood.
How Firm A Foundation, April 2010 General Young Women Meeting (Choir and Congregation)
The soul that on Jesus hath leaned for repose
I will not, I cannot, desert to his foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, I’ll never, no never,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake!
My concentration is pretty much why I’ve stopped for the day. It’s very hard to focus on what they’re saying, even when I do things like color to try and improve my ability to do it.
But I got through three! That was like, 45 minutes! Plus three songs was almost the whole length of a Sacrament meeting (after you take out the administrative stuff.) So I’m calling it a victory. And now I have Conference music on for the rest of the day, so, woot.
Ack, that sounds so fun! My most daring act of fashion in church is to go with black instead of suntan. Heh.once-she-decided-to-fly replied to your post: Nylons
I generally wear brightly colored knee-high socks to church. :p It’s my splash of “me,” I guess. But I do always wear ankle-length skirts also, so only a few people catch a glimpse of the socks. Last week’s were glow in the dark! ;)
