LATTER DAY RADIO was on the scene at the Mountain America Expo center in Sandy, Utah on the Friday September 28th for the Fall edition of The Firm Foundation Expo, a convention to bolster faith in the Book of Mormon. The two-day convention featured some 15 speakers for 12 hours each day. LATTER DAY RADIO interviewed several speakers who presented at the conference, including David Hocking and Rod Meldrum, the chief editors and creators of the incredible new coffee table book, the big blue Annotated Book of Mormon. Jonathan Neville also made an appearance as did Betty "Red Ant" LaFontaine. Jason Mow, the author of the new Warrior Ethos books told about his incredible journey. And, Dr. Lynn Ridenhour, a Baptist minister who preaches out of the Book of Mormon and has organized like-minded Protestant ministers to do the same gave a spell-binding account of his life-changing experience with the Book of Mormon. Listen to it all on the podcasts available soon at kloradio.com.
On our second broadcast on June 8th, Martin Tanner, Greg Jarrard and several guests recounted the events leading up to the June 8th, 1978 announcement on the Priesthood when the LDS Church announced that all worthy males, regardless of race or color, could be ordained to the Aaronic and Melchizedek Priesthood. Guests included former Church News employees and editors Gerri Avant and John Hart who recounted their experiences when they received the news and their responsibilities in sharing it with the world. And senior missionary couples, the Barlows and the Firths, shared their experiences of sharing the Gospel with people of African descent. And Defender of the Faith Martin Tanner explained how it took a revelation to change a policy, and how that affected the growth of the Church today. This entire broadcast is available as a podcast by going to kloradio.com.
