I am not sure if I would attend a meeting of Mormon Stories; however, I did listen to about 40 minutes of a video on Dehlin's facebook page. I was not offended by anything I heard; some of the people I truly felt a sorrow that they were in such pain; then they have some pseudo intellectuals that spout pure drivel and insipid summaries of what they thought were "truth".
I would not feel uncomfortable attending one.
At an open mic? I have no idea if I would feel like I needed to speak.
Discipline for attending? Is this a serious question?
“When from Thy stern tutoring, I would quickly flee, turn me from my Tarshish to where is best for me. Help me in my Nineveh to serve with love and truth; not on a hillside posted, mid shade of gourd or booth. When my modest suffering seems so vexing, wrong, and sore, may I recall what freely flowed from each and every pore. Dear Lord of the Abba Cry, Help me in my duress to endure it well enough and to say, . . . 'Nevertheless.'” - Neal A. Maxwell
