Do you know a single adult willing to share their experience? (Leading Saints)

Leading Saints and Faith Matters are currently in the process of creating the Single Saints Virtual Summit, which is a virtual conference to help Latter-day Saints better understand the complexities of being a single adult in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

They are looking for single adults with unique or faithful perspective to share regarding their experience as a single adult in the church. They would love to capture their experience in a 5-10 minute video that we can share with the summit audience.

The summit audience includes a lot of leaders who want to gain a deeper understanding of experiences that are different than their own.

They would love to have you submit an experience, so this is how it works.

  1. Send this email to a single adult you know (if that is you, then keep reading and/or feel free to share it with other single adults you know)
  2. Record a simple video with your smartphone (selfie style works) that is at least 5 minutes but no longer than 10 minutes.
    • Make sure you have good lighting on your face
    • Start by introducing yourself and then share your experience
    • If it helps you can start with a phrase like, “What I wish my leaders knew about being a single adult is…”
    • Short stories are helpful but try to avoid soap boxes or calling out specific individuals who acted in a disappointing way
    • We want to make these as positive and faith promoting as possible while still highlighting the complexities of being a single adult in our faith community.
  3. Once your video is recorded there is no need to edit the video (we can help with that). Just upload the file to your favorite cloud service and send us the link. If you need any help with this process please let us know.

All video submissions must be in by September 11, 2021.

Feel free to email kurt@leadingsaints.org with any questions.

Meet people from different religions: Create understanding through education

One of the best ways to break down barriers and facilitate understanding is through education. Education, both intellectual and emotional, usually occurs best when you personal meet someone who is different than yourself. As you get to know them, they are humanized and you can see through the myth and misperceptions that previously clouded your thoughts about that group.
