The bishop is not concerned that the youth will not attend mutual simply because it is not an event on the calendar. Mutual is a standing activity that every parent and youth knows about. He feels they don't need an electronic reminder or an event on a calendar to know it is happening.RussellHltn wrote:Gary_Miller wrote:Without an event attached to the reservation it will not show up on any Calendar.
Indeed. How many of the youth have smart devices? Wouldn't the youth leaders like to have their events show up on them?
He only expects youth mutual activities that need special announcement posted on the calendar.
Our ward has never used the online calendar for regular mutual activities. In fact the only youth activities that are put on the online calendar are those that are not at the meetinghouse, require room reservations on mutual night, or room reservations on non-mutual days.RussellHltn wrote:While I respect some of the bishop's concerns, I think he's moved way over to the oversimplified side of a good balance.
