The Mormon Moment: It’s a Wrap!

Someone asked us; What are Mormons going to do now that the “Mormon Moment” is over? We’re not quite sure what those who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints actually thought the Mormon Moment was.  To us the Mormon Moment was a catchy way of saying that Mormon topics were trending, and trend they did; on Google, Yahoo, the news, media, press, online, at work, at home and at play.

Other than experiencing along with the rest of the world our LDS faith being thrust into the lime-light, we don’t really think it changed much of the day-to-day aspects of life for most Mormons. The Mormon Moment wasn’t a job was it, cause if so, we are owed some back wages!

Now that the presidential election is over and Governor Romney has said his gracious farewell, the press is letting everyone know that the Mormon Moment is over. So what will the Mormons do?

If you’re Governor Romney or the Mormons who voted for him, some of us will be sad at first, but not for long. Mormons are a people filled with faith and hope. Y’all we have survived an extermination order, a pioneer trek to the desert and like Brotha Romney said in his gratitude-filled concession speech, we know how to pray. P. Diddy said: “Can’t nobody take my pride, can’t nobody hold me down, oh no, I got to keep on movin’!” And that’s how the Mormons roll!

We will make Jell-o and some of us will put carrots in it. Don’t judge us, we were doing it before the Mormon Moment, during the Mormon Moment and we sho ain’t stoppin’ now.

We will still come knocking at you’re door. And now that young men can serve missions at 18 instead of 19 and young women at 19 instead of 21, there will be plenty more of us to do the Lord’s work. So be nice and don’t slam the door in our face, and maybe offer to feed us.
We will drive minivans. As long as they are making them, you will see Mormons driving them. Ain’t no shame in our game.
We are still going to argue over whether it’s ok to drink caffeine. We thought that the LDS church’s statement would have stopped the debates, but umm…no.
We will  get married…to only ONE woman. (We hope the Mormon Moment has at least cleared this up.)
We will do our best to maintain our values and standards. 
We will worship.
We will serve.
What we are saying is that Mormons are just gonna do what we do, we’re gonna do us. Mormons may have had a moment, but we weren’t Mormons for a moment. So don’t worry world, our moment in the spotlight has not gone to our heads. We’re still who we always were, your brothas and sistas, neighbors and friends, who just like you; are trying to be like Jesus.

    Amen Sista’s
    I feel that each Mormon Moment was that door that the Savior is knocking on opening just a little bit wider. He says Behold I stand at the door and knock… We are the door keepers, let’s keep opening that door for our neighbor’s and all who may be looking through the peep hole wondering if they should open that door. The Mormon moment is not over, we can take it to the next level and it becomes the cause for Christ.

    Yes, it’s a wrap, but could you please have Sista Laurel provide a Post-MoMent RAP?  I know she can do it.  Hallelujah.

    Thanks Rene, it probably doesn’t say it all, cause Mormons are so many things, but we came as close as we could. :)

  • http://www.sistasinzion.com/ Sistas in Zion

    Amen!

  • http://www.sistasinzion.com/ Sistas in Zion

    Thanks it sounds so much less conceited when someone else says how awesome we are, instead of us saying it ourselves. ;-)

    Love is what makes the world go round and the greatest commandment we have been given. So thank you, the Sistas love you too!

  • http://www.sistasinzion.com/ Sistas in Zion

    When I left the church I lost my entire family. As far as values goes you have no idea what goes on do you? Your post are mormon propaganda ladened trash. Your so knee deep in it all every page in the book of mormon could not clean you up.

  • http://www.sistasinzion.com/ Sistas in Zion

    Jesus loves you!

    Exactly! The dialogue that has been created has got to continue and hopefully it will continue to be positive for Mormons and our friends of other faiths. Carrots on salsa, we’ll have to try that…lol.

    Thanks Sista Sue!

  • Susan Anderson

    One of the bests posts I’ve read on this subject. Just great!

    =)

  • Delainey

    I like to think our Mormon Moment began with Mitt but won’t end with him. I hope the widespread conversations about the Mormon church will create a better open dialogue with our non Mormon peers.

    Ps carrots on jello made me laugh so hard. We like to put shredded carrots in our salsa around here!

    Wow! Still angry huh? Well I hope you find your way to a better place in or out of the church. I pray you never have to deal with disappointment. I hope no one disrupts your life in such a way that you can’t find yourself on the other end. There will always be evil people in all places and all faiths. Hopefully you can find a way to overcome all the evil and contention you may face. Don’t believe others do not face the troubles you have faced. We all find ways to deal with it. For some it increases their faith and determinations, for others, it is a challenge that destroys. I pray you find you way no matter how badly any family member or church has treated you. In the end it is their sin not your’s… useless you let it become your destruction. I pray you do well in the place you are in.
