This podcast is for those who want to engage with Latter-day Saints in a culturally discerning way. We recognize that Mormonism is a cultural identity rather than merely a religion, so our witness must take into consideration their cultural context.
We aim to release a new episode every two weeks, many of which will be conversations with ministry leaders, church planters, and everyday followers of Jesus who are engaging with Latter-day Saints.
