Northern Lights is a blog written by believing members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Its purpose is to be a place where we and our readers can openly explore and discuss topics and issues of interest to the community of Saints — and particularly as they relate to homosexuality, gender identity, and the Church of Jesus Christ. In doing so, we are committed to fostering explorations in an edifying and uplifting manner and within the framework of commitment to the beliefs and ideals of the Church.
We invite you to share your thoughts, specifically relating to the article or essay at hand. Keep your comments uplifting, positive, kind, respectful and gospel-centered. Speak to your own experiences rather than criticizing others. Meaningful questions and even disagreements can still be explored. But commentary that doesn’t positively contribute to the conversation will not be posted on this site.
There are many forums available to those who wish to debate Church doctrines and policies and share negative, inflammatory or unkind comments. This is not that forum.
