When my husband and I were new in the church, we were not always clear on the "rules". One Sunday, we wanted to go perch fishing and were not sure whether or not perch fishing fell under the category of "work" on a Sunday. I called our bishop and explained the situation, to which he replied, "Well, I wouldn't". I told him I was surprised, that I didn't really consider it "work". He expained that we would be making other people work. I said, "How? We will just be casting our lines out into the water". He then told me that he had thought I was asking if we should go PURCHASING (sounds like 'perch fishing', but who uses that term in that way?) Anyway, we did end up going fishing.
I shudder when I think of how we allowed ourselves to be led like Lemmings.
