Some of you who are regular contributors on the A Thought Faith Facebook Support Group will recognize James Patterson. Mormon Stories Podcast listeners will recall his recent interview with John Dehlin and Terryl and Fiona Givens
James was in every respect a good Mormon American boy from a conservative Mormon family. He grew up on the East Coast of the United States, served his mission in Idaho, graduated from BYU Idaho, married in the temple, he was called onto the bishopric at a young age and has given faithful service to the church as long as he as been able. He currently lives in Virginia, has a good job in DC and if it weren’t for his recent faith crisis he would be a credit to the church. But he has had a faith transition and all of those shifts and changes that happen as a result have happened in short order.
James Patterson joins the ATF family as a new co-host and discusses his evolution from devout to faithful doubt.
