As a show that speaks from a standpoint of LGBTQIA+ members in the Latter-days, the talk that Elder Jeffery R. Holland gave at BYU on August 23rd brought tears, confusion, and frustration into our midst. As a cast of four very different members of that particular community, we each reacted in our own manners to listening to and reading Elder Holland’s talk.
The result, for several days, was a need for distance from one another while we each sought guidance from God, on our knees, and while fasting.
The resulting production was a nearly hour-long discussion between all four cast members, recorded on the subsequent Saturday, that we recorded as our season two opener — special episode one.
We invite you to watch or listen to this episode (embedded below) at a time when you can appreciate the emotions that were felt when it was recorded.
We are sending out an abundance of love to all of you and hope that you will join us next week also as we begin our fall season of our Come Follow Me program that will feature not only the traditional class learning, as well as a segment from Bradley Talbot, “On The Record,” but also a segment from our new host, Kate Mower, (who is a historian), “Queering the Scriptures.”
Dennis will bring his convert energy and enthusiasm for the Gospel as we all will learn from one another. We will be attempting to keep season two’s episodes to a 30-minute timeline for the convenience of our audience.
(Please excuse Maggie’s audio for the first 10 minutes of the episode-also we are always in search of an audio-video editor with experience-Maggie is a writer)
