I needed to hear this again today. So much baggage most of us carry in the word “forgiveness.” Ultimately… forgiveness is a gift you give yourself. It’s acceptance. And it’s moving forward. I don’t really use the word forgiveness much anymore… because it’s been so polarized and cheapened… and even used to retraumatize and justify toxic or nonexistent boundaries. But I love the concepts shared here. The One Person Oprah Couldn't ForgiveThis one important person in Oprah Winfrey's life wanted… Read more

As the Minneapolis City Council Vice President Andrea Jenkins,  stated… racism [is] a public health emergency. Mental health research corroborates this.

I hope to see our white church leaders to take much stronger stances in renouncing our racist history. I hope to see our white church leaders to apologize directly… Read more

We need to understand how the terms “racism” and “white supremacy” are being defined by the black and sociology communities. This is much larger than “being nice to Black people” or not using racial slurs. These are systemic issues that white people benefit from whether we want to, realize it, or not. And so we have to own it, listen, learn and then act in spaces we have influence. There is much to do in mormon land to address racism…. Read more

It’s so important for us to hear the voices of our members who are leaving due to LGBT+ discrimination. Until we address this problem we will continue to lose some of our best and brightest. Hiding behind our ideas of “God” that have always been affected by our own cultural biases and discriminations is a poor excuse to not look more deeply at our own morality and covenant to “bear each other’s burdens” and welcome all to “come unto Christ.”… Read more
