Still, Huey’s father and other ancestors chose to move forward following the war, refusing to harbor resentment or bitterness—passing on to their children and grandchildren the hope of a much brighter future.

    Abe Mills and Stephen Jones: Love Thy Neighbor

    Abe Mills and Stephen Jones: Love Thy Neighbor

    The complexities surrounding conversations of racism today are numberless but the root of the solution is the two great commandments: love God and love your neighbor as yourself. On this week’s episode, we talk with Abe Mills and Stephen Jones, two black Latter-day Saints, about their experiences with racism within Church culture, the faith of those who came before them, and why they don’t hesitate to share their faith in Jesus Christ.
    The All In team is honoring Juneteenth with this special episode from our archives. We will be back with new episodes next week. (originally aired 17 June 2020)
    3:40- Who Is Your Neighbor?
    9:15- Mourn with Those That Mourn
    14:33- Personal Experiences with Racism
    30:14- The Body of Christ

    48:27- Pioneers
    56:20- Peace and Hope in Troubled Times
    1:02:16- What Does it Mean to be “All In” the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
    "Understanding what He did for us, it gives us hope, which we live in a world with a lot of people that have no hope or they’ve lost their hope—whether it’s hope in equality, hope in fairness, hope in whatever—they’ve lost their hope, but the gospel has taught us hope because we know what Jesus Christ did for us. It has taught us understanding because we know Christ was the example of understanding, and on top of that, it has taught us forgiveness, or how to forgive, in a time where forgiveness is needed greatly." -Abe Mills
