Hello from Strangers No More! Thank you for your interest in our show and in our greater mission.
Having been strangers to one another up to the last few months, we know we are also strangers to you! In the next few months, we will ALL get to know one another very well as we navigate the waters of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as contained in the Doctrine and Covenants in a ship that welcomes one and all.
Strangers No More was named by Elder Gong’s talk in October 2020, when he invited The Saints to “Live and Share the Gospel,” so there would be no strangers.
We take Elder Gong’s admonition seriously.
We are LGBTQIA+ friendly, but also acknowledge other “strangers” that may not feel like they fit in on what some may refer to as “Mormon culture.”
Some of those strangers might be: Unhoused people, disabled people, people of color, neurodivergent people, childless couples and single older adults. As representatives of many of these groups, we want all of you to know you are not alone.
Strangers No More for its hosts, is our Family Home Evening. As adults in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we often don’t have the opportunity to enjoy the extra Gospel study that a “family” home evening on Monday affords. So, as part of our studies, we will be recording them and sharing those thoughts with YOU, our audience.
Let us know how you feel about this week’s show. Now that we have recorded a few episodes, we are starting to get the hang of it!
Write us an email and let us know if this is something that is helpful for you, or if there are other topics you would like to see covered.
In addition to our weekly episodes, we WILL be recording some specials with guests who have already expressed interest! Expect in the coming months to hear from Papa Richard Ostler from Listen, Learn and Love and Professor Taylor Petery, author of Tabernacles of Clay. and maybe even a few more!
If you would be interested in joining our efforts in a creative manner, we are a work in progress and would appreciate the help! Just contact us here!
Thank you again for your interest in our project. We hope your week is full of the love and lighte of Jesus Christ.
We love you and so does God.
Enjoy week 3’s episode: Turning Our Hearts
Last week we also recorded a SPECIAL episode! You know those times when you’re in a Sunday School class and they brush a subject under the carpet? We promised in our intro that we would not do that, and as part of fulfilling that commitment, we have recorded a special “cringe” episode, discussing same-sex marriage. We have embedded it below!
