Anthony Miller lives in Billings Montana. He grew up Mormon. He did all the things required of good Mormon boys, and he thought he knew where his life was heading. But a dramatic and sudden period of faith deconstruction had him reconsidering everything about his religious life.
Mormon leave-takers don’t usually manage the God and church conversation without some nervousness but Anthony wanted to understand his inner journey well and despite his resignation, he has remained open and curious about spirituality and spiritual formation inside and outside of the LDS Church. And, Anthony has found gracious and wise ways of accommodating his still adherent wife’s journey in the LDS faith.
Anthony joins me to talk about gracious LDS leave-taking, deconstruction and spiritual reconstruction.
