Gordon Monson shifts gears, discusses what he loves about the LDS Church

The Salt Lake Tribune sports columnist continues his push for the reforms he would like to see by focusing on the aspects of his faith he cherishes as they are.

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Tribune sports columnist Gordon Monson, a practicing Latter-day Saint, discusses the things he loves about his faith in this week’s “Mormon Land” podcast.

In January, Salt Lake Tribune columnist Gordon Monson quit writing about the WNBA, NBA, NFL, NCAA, MLS, MLB and the alphabet soup of the sports world to comment on a another acronym: LDS.

A practicing and believing member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he proposed 20 reforms he would like to see his faith undertake.

Now Monson is once again quitting Utah Jazz practice, college football spring drills and March Madness matchups to offer, in a kind of journalistic makeup appeal, 20 things he loves about its church – from its lay clergy and basketball courts to its opportunities for service and its focus on Jesus.

On this week’s show, Monson discusses the positives he sees in the church today.
