In President Dallin Oaks’ recent conference address, he called out political partisanship and insisted that we eliminate it from all discussions in church. But, of course, that is more easily said than done. How do we go about making sure that members of all political persuasions feel at home in Christ’s church? How do we cultivate an awareness and appreciation of diversity of views in our local congregations?

As a follow-up to last week’s conversation, we tackle that very practical question. To do so, we’ve partnered with Kurt Francom of Leading Saints, a really remarkable organization that helps Latter-day Saints be better prepared to lead. He joins Thomas Griffith and Bill Turnbull to explore how we can best meet Pres. Oaks’ challenge.

Thomas Griffith has broad experience in both church leadership and public service. He has served as chief counsel for both the U.S. Senate and for Brigham Young University, and was appointed to a judgeship by George W. Bush on the Federal Court of Appeals in the D.C., from which he recently retired. He now practices law in D.C. and teaches at Harvard Law School.

Kurt Francom lives in the Salt Lake City area and has served as a bishop and in a stake presidency. He founded Leading Saints nearly a decade ago and serves as it’s Executive Director and host of the very popular Leading Saints podcast.
