Thousands of people either leave or contemplate leaving the LDS church each year. However, many feel a great deal of ambivalence towards this decision, since leaving the Church often has very serious familial, social, occupational, and even psychological implications. Many members caught at this crossroads see only two paths: (1) stay active as a full-blown, 100 percent traditional member, or (2) cease all meaningful affiliation with the Church. In this workshop, JOHN DEHLIN discusses “middle way” strategies for maintaining Church involvement even when one is feeling out of the mainstream of Mormon life and belief. The workshop format consists of a formal presentation of about an hour, followed by group sharing and discussion.
