“A New Paradigm for Latter-day Saints“
Date & Time: February 20, 2020, from 7–9pm Mountain Standard Time
Hosts: Dan Wotherspoon, Mark Crego, Susan Hinckley
Last September, we presented an episode (#022) titled, “A Paradigm Shift in Today’s Mormonism,” in which LDF host Dan Wotherspoon asserted that over the past few decades, as current top-down leadership and an organization that fails to acknowledge and welcome those on the margins is showing its cracks, we are seeing among more and more Latter-day Saints the emergence of a spiritual confidence and excitement to share a much larger vision of life and energetic engagement with Mormon texts, themes, practices, approaches, and sensibilities. It is taking hold in such a way that we feel it has become time to better articulate this emerging paradigm so it and its spiritual and practical benefits might move more into the forefront.
In this virtual fireside, we will host a Zoom call (no cost) geared toward describing the new paradigm more clearly and brainstorming ways we all might be part of its establishment as a genuine way to fully participate in the church that will be not only acceptable, but also attractive and compelling to many others within the LDS community.
