Since it began, I have tried to be as active as I can in the Mormon Worker. I grew up in the Mormon Church and have had my share of struggles with the culture and doctrines. This is why I am so happy to be a part of the Mormon Worker. It is a bridge between my Mormon heritage and my political soul. I hope that the readers will contribute thoughtful and respectful comments and that a dialogue that builds common ground emerges. I am very optimistic about the rising generation of Mormon youth. Our generation will be faced with enormous challenges and it will take every intellectual, spiritual and physical muscle we have to forge alternatives to the current systems of oppression and tyranny. It will be difficult to navigate the breadth of intellectual and spiritual tensions that being Mormon in today’s world presents, but I am convinced and grateful that these tensions have made the person I am today.
Keep up the Good Work,
