I have a great home in a great ward on the East Coast. I love the community, spirituality, and teachings of this Church. It’s an amazing platform from which to share the surprises of the restored gospel with a world that desperately needs Christ’s gentle love.
I’m a strong advocate for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and an important part of the name of the Church is “Latter-day,” because we are not a backwards church or an obsolete church. Our thinking is never outdated, as we have a living prophet, and we have continuous revelation from the Holy Ghost to every member of the Church from the new member to the current prophet. Latter-day Saints will have latter-day thinking, and we will not fall prey to the racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, and ableist influences that we can easily absorb from other sources centuries ago.
Please prayerfully consider everything I have to share with you. The Spirit blows where it wishes (John 3:8) and you may be surprised where the Spirit is leading us. The wind blows in unpredictable ways, so we must always be prepared for the next new twist that the untamed Spirit has in store for our Church. Our little Church has always thought outside the box. So, welcome to Latter-day Thinking!
