An Evolving Kinship

In our first two episodes of the second season of Strangers No More, we explore the times and history around the Doctrine and Covenants 94 through 101.

With a much quicker pace than we had settled into for our first season, each episode is finished within 35 minutes, after exploring many topics around the Come Follow Me handbook suggested readings.

With the addition of Kate Mower’s segment, “Queering the Scriptures,” which allow for a deeper dive into the history of our canonized books, and Bradley Talbot’s “On The Record,” all of the hosts are learning and teaching one another at a rapid pace.

The first episode for our fall season is Zion is The Pure in Heart- Come Follow Me (Doctrine and Covenants 94-97) Strangers No More SNM S2 E1.

In this episode, the hosts discuss what it means to be “pure in heart.”


In our second episode of Season Two, a lively discussion starts about what kinship systems can mean after Maggie goes down a rabbit hole in a exploration of Doctrine and Covenants 99.

Be Still: Kinship & Murdock Family- Come Follow Me 2021 (D & C 98-101) Strangers No More SNM S2 E2 explores a bit of Murdock family history and extended kinship systems as they relate to polygamy.


Christ Gathers Us and We Catch Up!

“Just be patient and just keep trusting God. Things work out. Its on God’s timetable, not ours.” A quote from Andrew in this week’s episode of Strangers No More

Maggie comes out and shares her Hard of Hearing disability and requests more help and more members to add to our team to improve accessibility for all.

Andrew introduced the lesson and after having struggled with remembering the name of a hymn during the introduction, he quickly reminds himself and the audience what the name of that tune was.

When the Strangers get down to the lesson, “The Gathering of Israel,” Dennis gets carried away with a touch of gossip, before sharing “The Plan of Salvation,” as taught by his missionaries not that long ago.

In a revelatory explanation, Bradley shared how the Plan of Salvation is not only about us as individuals, but also relates to how we interact in relationships.

After the discussion of the lesson, Bradley shared some facinating insights about how “The Plan” is described throughout the Book of Mormon causing us all to reflect a bit.

Maggie shared how moving forward with the Gospel fills her life with love.
