    Re-release of Maxwell Institute Podcast #169: Where Do We Start to Build Zion? Featuring Melissa Inouye

    Melissa Wei-Tsing Inouye, our longtime associate at the Maxwell Institute, died on April 23rd, 2024. We join with many in mourning her loss and celebrating the remarkable legacy she left in the form of books, articles, and lots and lots of podcasts and videos. Melissa was a gifted speaker, warm, funny, faithful, and so smart.We wanted to re-release some of the Maxwell Institute interviews and lectures she delivered over the years. In this 2023 interview on her book, Sacred Struggle, Finding Christ on the Path of Most Resistance, Melissa and I talked about the ways that our collective struggles to build Zion can help us grow toward our divine potential. I especially loved her insight that over the course of history, many people have had visions and seen angels. What's remarkable about our faith tradition is not only its supernatural origins, but the fact that our church has held together over generations. We've somehow figured out how to get along well enough to survive and grow. And that is remarkable. Melissa attributes this strength to our doctrine of Zion, and she invites us to update our idea of service to include listening carefully to our brothers and sisters who may be different from us. I hope you enjoy this interview with our beloved friend, the one of a kind, Melissa Inouye.

    Re-release of Maxwell Institute Podcast #111 with Melissa Inouye

    Melissa Wei-Tsing Inouye, our longtime associate at the Maxwell Institute, died on April 23rd, 2024. We join with many in mourning her loss and celebrating her remarkable legacy. Melissa was a gifted speaker, warm, funny, faithful, and so smart. We wanted to re-release some of the Maxwell Institute interviews and lectures she delivered over the years.In this 2019 interview hosted by Blair Hodges, Melissa talks about her book, Crossings, a bald Asian American Latter-day Saint woman scholar's ventures through life, death, cancer, and motherhood, not necessarily in that order. Crossings is my personal favorite of Melissa's many writings. As you'll hear in this interview, Melissa combined a scholar's understanding of how institutions work.With the believer's experience of the trust and belonging in a Latter-day Saint ward, to me, this is what made Melissa's perspective on our religious life together so powerful. I hope you enjoy this interview with a consummate disciple-scholar, Melissa Inouye.

I love the podcast. It is super informative and interesting. It pushes me to think of things in new ways. That said, I would get more out of it if Rosalynde Welch’s microphone was better. During the last few episodes, it has been very difficult to hear her. Please don’t waste her insights with a bad mic!

The last two episode, the host microphone has an issue. She keeps cutting in and out. It makes the audio difficult to listen to.

Each episode is a cannot miss!

Rosalynde Welch guides this podcast with such stunning expertise and grace. She is a fabulous interviewer and, I would argue equally important, listener. She brings such energy to the Maxwell Institute and I’m deeply grateful for her and all she does to bring this podcast about. Each episode is a must listen!
