Mormon Stories #314:Part 2 of 4 - Ceasing to Believe in the LDS Church as a CES Seminary Teacher

In this series we interview John and Brooke McLay. John served for 14 years as an employee of the LDS Church Education System (CES). In this capacity he served as: a seminary teacher and principal, an institute teacher and director, a BYU Education Week speaker and an EFY Director. John also served as a member of a stake high counsel, and was serving in a bishopric during the months leading up to his decision to leave the LDS Church. John and Brooke resigned their membership of the LDS Church in August of 2011. This is their story.

just finished watching 314 part 2, pretty amazing. this couple are very intellectual and open to expanding their human experience.  they couldnt do that living within the confines of the lds cult. Im sure the "church" will ban this video. Information is power.

I've listened to all four segments. Very powerful. My wife and I resigned on Aug 8 2011, three days before this couple. Although we were not part of CES, we were able to identify with many of their experiences and emotions. What a fantastic and helpful video!
