A Thoughtful Faith - Mormon / LDS

Sara Hughes-Zabawa joins me for the final episode of the Fowler's Stages of Faith series.   

In this episode we discuss the failings of Fowler's stages. We also talk about how we can notice or engage  stage 6 without falling into the trap of imagining that a universalizing faith is the terrain of the political and religious luminaries alone..

Jana Riess discusses her study 'The Next Mormons' and how the changing worldviews of Millennials will impact the Church of Jesus Christ Latter-day Saints.

From 'The Next Mormons':

"American Millennials--the generation born in the 1980s and 1990s--have been leaving organized religion in unprecedented numbers. For a long time, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was an exception: nearly three-quarters of people who grew up Mormon stayed that way into adulthood. In The Next Mormons, Jana Riess demonstrates that things are starting to change."

Joanna Brooks and Kalani Tonga join me to discuss their book of women's blessings and poetry, 'We Hold Your Name' (2019)

From the jacket:

"A collection of blessings and poetry written by Mormon women responding to the announcement of Gina Colvin's disciplinary council. This work of love features the voices of established authors like Carol Lynn Pearson and Joanna Brooks, as well as first time poets, and renowned visual artists. It is designed to lend comfort and courage to those who feel unwanted by their religious community, and was written specifically for those facing excommunication from the Mormon Church."
