Thank you for the top Amyjo. Our featured speaker, John Rector, has had to cancel due to the unexpected death of his father-in-law. We will reschedule him in the future, and are looking forward to meeting him. Three very brave local members have stepped into the breech for this coming Sunday. The gathering should still be very enjoyable, hope to see everyone there.

When the Mormon Church’s LGBT policy made headlines last November, it shocked a lot of people. Most mainstream Mormons have worked through it with official clarifications, but faithful LGBT members are still in pain and struggling to understand their place in the LDS Church. Critics say it’s also led to increased youth suicides, broken families, and mass resignations. Thursday, we’re talkin
