    Whatever happened to service without bragging about it?

    Why does the Mormon church need to push press releases saying “Look at us! We’re serving our community!”

    Seems anything but Christlike to me.

      Please note that the church is not publicizing this service. Christlike service is done without fanfare, and if the media decides to publicize it, the church can’t do anything about that. Please think about what you are posting before you post it Jennifer. Thank you.
