You asked and we answered! Carter and I are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and in the most recent General Conference Church leaders began to speak more directly about racism, unity, and inclusion. Many of you asked us to share our reactions to two talks in particular, so in this episode we break down our thoughts and feelings about President Oaks & Elder Cook's General Conference talks. We also answer three of your questions:

  1. How do we "point out the mess" without invalidating the good?
  2. How do we give mercy to leaders trying their best?
  3. Is the Church making progress? How should it move forward?

President Oaks: Love Your Enemies 

Elder Cook: Hearts Knit in Righteousness and Unity
