Dear 100 Hour Board,

When you go to put names on the temple prayer roll, there are little strips of paper that can be dropped into the box, and there are pads of paper with lists of names on them. Which are you supposed to use? Both? Are they for different things?


A: Dear Vanessa,

If you only have a few names (or even just one) that you want to submit, go ahead and use the small strips. There is no sense is using a whole sheet from one of the larger pads for just a few names. However, if you want to submit the names of 8-10 (or however many) people, it would certainly be more practical to submit them on one piece of paper (especially for the person who empties the box). Nothing complicated. It's done just for practicality.
