Latter-day Saints for Change

"And he inviteth them all to come unto him and partake of his goodness; and he denieth none that come unto him, black and white, bond and free, male and female; and he remembereth the heathen; and all are alike unto God, both Jew and Gentile." 2 Nephi 26:33

Our Purpose

This blog represents believers, doubters, former believers, and those who wish to believe again.  We met on the internet, seeking understanding and comfort, and we want to use the internet to let others find the comfort that comes from being heard.
We are collecting letters from active, in-active, and former members and friends of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints regarding their experiences with the church.  We believe that Gandhi’s charge to be the change we wish to see in the world applies to our religious worship as well.  If you would like to add your voice, please submit a letter to ldsforchange@gmail.com telling the world what you would do to make the LDS experience better, more loving, more welcoming, more compassionate.  Whatever change you wish to see.
Letters will be posted to the blog.  We are looking toward mailing collections of the letters to regional representatives, news outlets, and/or the church leadership – wherever we think we can make the most change.  Feel free to send your letter anonymously, or include your name, ward and stake, if you like.  Just be sincere.
“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.”  –Edward Everett Hale

  1. For the record, that quote isn’t Helen Keller, though it’s usually attributed to her. It is actually from Edward Everett Hale.
