MSWR

By June 1, 2014

I have a very short MSWR for you today.

The Salt Lake Tribune has a piece on what, exactly, makes Mormonism (among other faiths) attractive to people in Ghana.

Curious about membership data for 2013? Go here.

An open letter from Michael Otterson, managing director of Public Affairs for the Church, has been making its way through the blogs. By Common Consent has it posted here. It’s meant to “provide some context from an insider perspective” about “women’s roles in The Church.” Same letter, different response here.

And…that’s it. Like I said, a short round-up this week. Go ahead and leave your links in the comments. What have you been reading this past week?

  1. Thanks for the link to the first article. I had a beloved Ghanaian investigator, a woman who had worked for the United Nations and was doing a fellowship in Gemany, and it was an honor to know her, and I’ve had a soft spot in my heart ever since for the people of Ghana.

    And of course the Otterson letter tended to overwhelm all other events in the field of Mormon studies this week!

    A question for those of you who will be going to San Antonio. As is usually the case, I can’t attend, so are any of you planning on doing live blogging of the sessions, awards dinner, etc., as you’ve done in the past?
