I haven't watched it. Yet, but I hope to. I am curious about it. Post if you watch it or read the transcript. It's just below the video.
"I stayed because it was God and Jesus Christ that I wanted to follow and be like, not individual human beings." Chieko Okazaki Dialogue interview

"I am coming to envision a new persona for the Church as humble followers of Jesus Christ....Joseph and his early followers came forth with lots of triumphalist rhetoric, but I think we need a new voice, one of humility, friendship and service. We should teach people to believe in God because it will soften their hearts and make them more willing to serve." - Richard Bushman

I love both of these men. I will try to watch it when I have more time.
I see through my glass, darkly - as I play my saxophone in harmony with the other instruments in God's orchestra. (h/t Elder Joseph Wirthlin)

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.

"For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong." H. L. Mencken

I listened to it when it first came out, but I don't really recall what it was. For a bit I was a Terry Givens fan, but at this point it just feels like beautiful poetic language that doesn't really say anything to me. It feels like someone from a different religion preaching.
