Mormon Patriarchal Blessings (Siblings in Zion Podcast)
As we mentioned in the last episode on Mormonism, Dan & his sister Lisa have started a new podcast called Siblings in Zion! Today we present an episode from that show in which the siblings discuss the LDS practice of 'Patriarchal Blessings'. Check out the links below and subscribe!
In this episode Dan and Lisa read their super special, verrry unique Patriarchal Blessings (also known as Mormon horoscopes) and dissect them into what is standard Mormon jargon, what is total BS, and what is likely influenced by knowledge provided to the patriarch beforehand. As you might expect, there are some differences between blessings and expectations for males and females.
They also hit some serious mental hurdles attempting to make any sense of what the pre-mortal life could possibly have been. What the hell is a spiritual body?!

The Fundamentals: Mormonism - Part 4 (Leaving the LDS Church)
In this season finale (more on that at the end of the episode), Dan's sister Lisa joins us to conclude our series on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She talks about the structure of missionary life bleeding over after she returned, her struggle to conform to the expectations of women in the church, some of the very weird things she used to believe, and the process of learning and accepting the incompatible truths that would lead her to resign her membership and seek a life of her choosing. We also discuss the future of The Fundamentals and expansion to new things. Stay tuned!
The Fundamentals: Mormonism - Part 3 (LDS Missionaries)
Finally, Dan's sister Lisa joins us to talk about growing up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, being baptized by her brother, attending BYU-Idaho, and serving a full-time mission for 18 months before eventually beginning to question the claims of Joseph Smith, the origins of the Book of Mormon, and the history of the church.
The Fundamentals: Seventh-day Adventist
Church on Saturday? Jesus Christ: Private Investigator? In 1844, after 'The Great Disappointment' of the Millerite movement, Ellen G. White began having visions. Eventually, she was among the founders of a new christian denomination known as the Seventh-day Adventist Church. We'll talk about how their beliefs and practices differ significantly from other Christian churches, and what the heck Jesus is doing up there in his heavenly apartment.
I Don't Want to Die! 💀
We ponder death and its place as the motive of religion. Yes, of course we talk about Mormonism, and Dan comments on the progress of having more honest communication with his Mormon family.
The Fundamentals: Yuri Gagarin - The First Man in Outer Space
In 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin orbited the Earth in the Vostok 1 spacecraft, becoming the first human being in outer space. He returned to great celebration and lived as a hero in his homeland. That is, until his still mysterious death in 1968 ...

I love this podcast, but I have some concerns about their episode release schedule. Every episode, these guys say they'll be back the next week, but they never are. It really toys with my emotions.
Always keeps me interested and always look forward to new episodes.
