If my memory is correct, 30 years ago, people came to church 15 minutes early and socialized. Local leaders had to remind people to socialize in the hallways and foyers before coming into the chapel proper, so that everyone could be quiet and reverent in preparation for sacrament meeting.
Now, it seems as if everyone who doesn’t come early for leadership meetings, arrives at the chapel at the last minute. There are exceptions, who are usually the older members.
What’s it like in your neck of the woods?
Have people forgotten how to socialize face-to-face? Is all socializing done online now?
