Jon Arnell: Moving Forward

Recent policy changes in the Church have breathed new life into age-old questions—What does it mean to be a disciple of Christ? Who has a place in the kingdom of God? How do we respond to change and diversity? What is my role in building Zion? Jon Arnell will share what he is learning as a gay Mormon, and what our questions and differences can teach us about moving forward as latter-day saints in a dynamic world.

Jon Arnell is a member of the LDS Church and has lived in Palo Alto for four years. He recently finished a Master’s program in Statistics at Stanford University, and he has used much of his free time to increase awareness of the experience of LGBT people in the LDS Church.
