Sacrament Meeting Length

For nearly 40 years, sacrament meeting ran for exactly 70 minutes. Oh sure, you might have a missionary homecoming here or there that ran over, but for the most part you could count on the meeting ending at it's prescribed time. In 2019, we moved to 60 minutes which was a little disconcerting for those of us averse to change, but there was still structure in our lives.

And then the pandemic hits and when we return to church it seems that sacrament meeting runs until it is over--some weeks that might mean ending after 30 minutes. And speaking for one member usually averse to change, it is actually pretty cool. It's kind of like watching an episode of The Mandalorian* where the episodes run shorter or longer based on how much time it takes to tell the story. No more filler is a good thing.

*Eh, this is the way, I suppose.
