On the first Sunday of each month, the main (Sacrament) meeting shifts from traditional sermons in preference to a public affirmation ritual known as the ‘Fast & Testimony Meeting.’
This is intended to bolster the masses by encouraging each other to stand with a microphone and testify. In most cases, the process digresses into folklore and speculation. Much to the chagrin of authorities.
The faithful relish it – the skeptics roll their eyes.
