I'm flag I stumbled upon your blog. I'm a Mormon convert from atheism, and when I got baptized I knew the literal understanding that I saw predominate inn the church would not work for me. Prior to my baptism, I read through all of the standard scriptures, spent a lot of time listening to John Dehlin's podcasts, reading things like Mormon scholar testimonies, and articles like the one by Richard Poll (which I love!). Slowly, I began to see a way to be a faithful, sincere, and active member of the church that would work for me. I did not know if the church was true note of there was a a God - not did I expect to know; but I saw enough good to make the commitment ot baptism, which I honor and take seriously. It had been a fascinating and enrichening journey.
I also recently started a blog where I will at times discuss my approach to Christianity and Mormonism, although it's not the primary topic (http://thattheymighthavejoy.com).
Thank you for your insightful posts. I'll come back for more!
