A while ago Bryndis Roberts was removed as her ward Relief Society President in Atlanta Georgia and she recently lost her treasured temple recommend for her support and leadership of Ordain Women. While this move by her local leaders was received with immense sadness it has also caused her to ask herself questions about the nature of God and who Mormonism’s current representation of God best serves.
In this searching and frank discussion we discuss the nature of God. We talk about how, despite the church’s attempts to manage, control and politicize the narrative of God, God shows up powerfully in ways that both surprise and empower.
For a black woman and a brown woman the notion of God as only white and only male has begun to sit uncomfortably as we experience God beyond masculinity and beyond whiteness.
