Episode 47

Exmo Stake Presidency Member and Faithful Apologist Talk Church Hot Topics

Can faithful members and post Mormons find common ground? On this fascinating episode of Mormonish, cohosts Rebecca and Landon sit down with former bishop and stake presidency member, Ian Wilks and faithful apologist, Jim Bennett, to discuss their unlikely collaboration and new podcast “Inside Out.” Ian grew up in a coal mining town in Wales and his story of living on the streets and finding the church is just incredible, as is his eventual journey out of the faith. You really have to hear the story to believe it! Jim was raised in the church and is a practicing member today, including singing in the Tabernacle Choir. Jim and Ian met on their mission to Scotland and formed a strong bond that continues today. Their new podcast looks at the church from the point of view of someone on the “inside” and someone on the “outside.” They both care deeply about the important issues facing members and post Mormons today, and are committed to finding common ground across difference divides.
