‘Only Your Hearts Know’: Sunstone During the Rector/Stephenson/Peck Years–Part 2: The Elbert Peck Years This paper, the second half of a history of the Sunstone Foundation during the years Daniel Rector, Linda Jean Stephenson, and Elbert Peck served as publishers and executive directors, treats the period Elbert headed the foundation. During this tumultuous time, Sunstone had to confront the impression that it somehow threatened the faith of the members of the LDS church. This included, on a personal level, charges from Church leaders against Elbert that he was guilty of apostasy for championing the intellectual openness Sunstone forums promote, as well as the push from some members of Sunstone’s board of directors that he should step down. Originally written last year, I will include an epilogue exploring the events of 2000-2001 that lead up to Elbert’s resignation on 8 June of this year.
