A Brigham Young University Professor's Escape from MormonismLynn K. Wilder

Faith & Reason blog lives: New home, new questions, same writerCathy Lynn Grossman

Cathy Grossman, formerly of USAToday and now gumshoeing at the Religion News Service, is back blogging. Her stuff riles folks up, which can be fun to watch, so bookmark her blog now!

A few weeks ago, I hosted DJ Chuang, Elizabeth Drury, and Mark DeYmaz for a discussion on multicultural churches. All three guests were in town for the Turnaround 2020 conference and we did a live conversion about an area they are all "in"—multicultural ministry. It's worth your time. I am also in a series of articles from Asian American leaders (my current "Thursday is for Thinkers" series), and DJ will be sharing more about Asian Americans on Thursday. By the way, I am at the Multiethnic Church Conference right now with the very speakers you can watch on this video (though the conference is better!). Don't forget to join me every Tuesday at 3:00 PM Eastern for The Exchange.
