As some of my readers will know, my family and I are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (aka the Mormons).  Explains the 6 kids, right? 🙂

As part of our trip to Europe, we realized we’d be in London over Sunday, leaving on a 2:40pm flight out of Heathrow

Given that we’d need to spend an hour to get out to Heathrow, plus 2 hours to navigate the airport and go through security, we knew we wouldn’t have time to do a ton of regular sightseeing, we decided we wanted to go to church.

Church on Vacation

I know some people don’t go to church while on vacation, and while I would say I’m not a 100% stickler about it, I think unless it was super inconvenient, we try to make a concerted effort to go to church even while we’re on vacation.  We went to church in Idaho Falls, Idaho while we were at Yellowstone this summer, and today’s church was the Hyde Park 2nd Ward in central London

It was the same as it ever was!  Boring high council speaker, returned missionary speaker, sustainings and releasings, even if we did sing the “wrong” While of These Emblems we Partake 🙂

I like to say one of my favorite things about going to church on vacation is the fact that the wi-fi password is the same in all the buildings around the world!  An important part of a church to me is the sense of the community, and walking into the church and having my phone start “buzzing” is like the church’s way of saying “Welcome back Brother Miller”
