Priesthood

This session with Paul needs a bigger audience. There is still too much residual racism in the church. A General Conference address would be nice, but that seems like wishful thinking, since change in the church both institutional and social is glacial. I’ve been struggling with this issue since I joined over 40 years ago. It doesn’t seem to get better. Leaders are too proud to admit their fallibility and apologize. If they did we could all move on.

Powerful

This collection of podcasts is a powerful pathway to deeper, more personal, more spiritual, and more authentic probing into the heart and mind of the Divine through the lens of a people and faith- tradition that thirsts for transformative latter-day language and learning. This podcast, fueled by unapologetic doubt, paired with faithful and unflinching discourse, and tempered by grace and pure intent, helps to satisfy a latter-day longing...a longing for progress and persuasion. Thank you all!

All the Things We Need

This podcast has meant so much to me. The guests are incredible and offer a much missed and needed perspective and truth. In a church where I am surrounded by toxic cultural norms this speaks to my soul. The most recent one on Heavenly Mother mirrored so many things I felt and validated them in so many ways. Thank you.
