  1. I blew my back out as EQP. I guess the bishop thought that qualified me to be a High Priest because i was called as his councilor.

    EQP was my favorite calling.

  2. “I always enjoyed putting the slackers on a guilt trip for not doing their home teaching”

    …and I’m sure they loved you for it.

  3. I am so glad I never did a guilt trip in the last 4 years I was EQP. I’m also glad I was able to convince my priesthood leaders why I wasn’t.

  4. I loved doing stuff with quorum members — helping people move, going to the temple, hanging out for ice cream after conference, whatever.

    My favorite calling has to have been Scoutmaster though. I was released today and am not sure quite how to feel.

  5. My quorum is pretty small (6 members) and so we are pretty tight. I enjoy all the Menrichments we do, and helping people move is okay. I have a few guys who are getting involved again because of the activities and one perspective Elder who is on his way to being an Elder. I remember him as a youth when he left the church. He got married and the wife stayed with his family while he fulfilled his military responsibilities. She joined and brought him back. He is a great kid, and they are a great family to have.

    My favorite calling is a tie between Adult Sunday School teacher or youth sst. I would go back to one of those callings in an instant.
