Movement Toward A Spectrum of Belief

These essays will show how the future of Mormonism exists through the creation of what we term a “spectrum of belief,” arguing for more inclusivity within Mormonism. Perkins’s essay argues for inclusivity for LGBTQ+ communities without direct authority from LDS leadership. Peck’s essay incorporates existentialism as a way to bring about a spectrum of belief through subjectivity and an emphasis on meaningful choice. Finally, Bond discusses first the portrait of a “none,” and argues for greater inclusivity for spiritual diaspora within a Mormon context.
