Can sarcasm and humor help heal the wounds of a faith crisis? Those are the questions considered in today’s episode as Glenn is interviewed by author and life coach Wendi Jensen for her group Thriving After Mormonism.
Three episodes in one. First, Glenn and Tom reflect on their missions and share how their patriarchal blessings impacted the course of their lives. Then you get to hear a previously unpublished episode from 9 years ago that goes into more detail about their mormon missions. And finally, the story of a one time streaking missionary who is now a religion teacher at BYU Idaho. A fun, jam-packed episode. Enjoy,
What would Joseph Smith say if he were to offer some kind of apology today? Glenn takes a stab at imagining such an apology. Tom and Brady take a stab at stabbing that stab. Sorry if that sounds like way too much stabbing. Blame it on the angel with the flaming sword.
Glenn and Tom sit down with Street Epistemologist extraordinaire Anthony Magnabosco to talk with Renee Cordeschi about her exit from the Jehovah’s Witness cult. Keep track of any the Mormon parallels. There will be a quiz (only 144,000 people will pass).
Glenn shares his thoughts on the Ronald E. Poelman talk/talks from 1984 and drops some Infant gen conf goodies from the past
What happens when the Lord™ draws a firm line in the sand (in November 2015) and then kinda sorta undraws it 3 1/2 years later? Glenn, Heather, and Tom discuss. With maybe a brief special visit from a certain Brother Jake. Enjoy.
I talked with my TBM Uncle (a former Bishop/Stake President/Mission President) a few days ago about Infants on Thrones. Wow, what an experience! I share it with you in today’s sharing time, and re-published a long lost IOT episode between myself (Glenn), Randy, Rock Waterman, and Andrea Staats (aka “Eliza R Snitch”). Enjoy!
Carole explains the habits of mind in the development of personality and how to avoid type-casting and pigeonholing when studying the Enneagram personality types.
Today Glenn sits down with Carole Whittaker, a teacher on the Enneagram (which is a fascinating tool for personality typing). Carole experienced a crisis of faith from her Catholic upbringing while she earned a PhD in Chemistry and began seeing that life outside her cultural faith bubble was different that what she had previously believed. After some great personal challenges, Carole experienced a spiritual reawakening, and the Enneagram played an important role. Part one of this conversation explores Carole’s background and story of faith crisis. Part two goes into more depth on the Enneagram and the neurological habits we develop that color the different ways we view and experience the world. It is a fascinating two-part series. Enjoy.
