We are honored to have Bob Rees joining us on February 25th at 7:00pm. Bob will delve more deeply into faith crisis among the Latter-day Saints to show that it is more multi-dimensional than most people realize. Often in the past, individuals have left the faith because of transgression or doctrinal differences, but some are leaving now because of ideology, culture and policy. How do we address this challenge, as individuals, families and congregations?

Laura will share what it was like for her as an adult coming to terms with being both a lesbian and an active member of the LDS faith. She will also talk about what her experience has been like since, as she has continued her activity in the church, but now does so while being openly gay and married to another woman. Laura’s testimony of the gospel has deepened as she has followed her own spiritual journey. Her wife Lynette will also be joining us and will share her perspective of being married to a Latter-day Saint who remains active in the faith.
