This episode is a recording of Dr. John Dehlin’s goodbye presentation to Cache Valley Oasis – a secular support community formed in Fall of 2015 in Logan, Utah. In his presentation (recorded May 21, 2017), John shared reflections of “lessons” he has learned over the course of 13 years as a Mormon/Post-Mormon activist. http://traffic.libsyn.com/mormontransitions/MormonStories-751-JohnDehlinLessonsLearned.mp3Podcast: Play
While some post-Mormons lose all taste for anything religious, others very much miss the fellowship/community/inspiration/support that they once received on Sunday as LDS Church members. Over the past several years, the idea of “secular churches” that meet on Sunday has begun to arise, inspired in part by Alain de Botton’s TED talk entitled “Atheism 2.0,” along
For Margi and me, one of the greatest joys in our progressive/post-Mormon life has been redirecting our LDS tithing funds to various destinations that we feel deserve support, including: Organizations like Women for Women, Heifer International, Smile Train, or Water.org. Family, friends, or community members in need of support (i.e., for food, a medical procedure, car repair)
