Temple Work God of Silliness
Temple Work: Are you actually doing anything worthwhile?
I was able to dig up this comment from a former Manti Temple worker I remembered reading on the Mormon Curtain website. Here is the relevant portion:
I had worked there for one year when I was called to the position of assistant supervisor over our shift. That required more meetings and more responsibility. One of my jobs sometimes was to gather up the used name tags that the patrons wore with the name of the dead person for whom they were going through the temple as proxy. These tags contained the name of the dead person so that temple workers could read the name off the tag when needed at various places in the ceremony. I would return the used name tags to the temple office, but then I found that the same names were used a second day, and to my amazement the same names were used for a third day.
I thought, What is happening here? Why do they use the same names three days in a row? I asked my supervisor about it and he told me that they always used the names of all persons submitted to the temple for temple work for those three days consecutively, and then they are sent to another temple and used again the same way and so on and so on. I thought that this was very odd. It was as though they did not have enough names for patrons to use fresh names each day. Why would they waste the time of each member going through the temple for the same person for three days in a row, when the ceremony had already been done for that person the first time?.
I recommend reading The Mormon Curtain to gain further light and knowledge about the temple. http:⁄⁄www.mormoncurtain.com⁄topic_temples_section3.html
