How do we question the policies and leaders of the LDS Church in good faith? On January 10, 2016 President Nelson addressed young adults of the church in a worldwide broadcast. He discussed the process by which the Nov 5 Church Handbook of Instructions policy changes concerning same sex married members and their children came into existence. In his talk he explained that, “Revelation from the Lord to His servants is a sacred process. And so is your privilege of receiving personal revelation.” In this episode we attempt to delve deeper into how prayer and revelation work in the Church by sharing further details about how the policy changes came to be. Based on interviews with a number of people who were close to the circumstances, the picture that emerges – in our view – may be helpful to those seeking to better understand the process of continuing revelation. Our discussion is not an attempt to challenge claims of divine authority, it is an attempt to faithfully question by expanding the details of the story that has been shared thus far.
