    Why is there a priesthood session anyway? What could possibly be said that women and girls wouldn't be fit to hear live? I've never once heard anything in that session and thought, "Well thank goodness my wife and kid didn't have to sit here and hear that live! Phew!" Where does this tradition come from and why does it persist? Someone please clarify this for me.

    Fun to read article. Wonder though if there are any fatherless or priesthood-fatherless boys in his ward who might appreciate being accompanied to the priesthood session.

    I have only daughters. So I use the opportunity to go someplace with my Dad or my Father-In-Law.

    Also, about green jello: I have not seen or tasted green jello in over 20 years - and I have been to a lot of church activities with food. Is it just a long-gone tradition that people love to bring up (usually critics), or is it still popular and I have just missed it the past 20 years?
