This is Scripture Roundtable 48 from The Interpreter Foundation, in which we discuss the Doctrine & Covenants Gospel Doctrine Lesson #44, Being Good Citizens, focusing on scriptures in 58, 98, 134, and Articles of Faith, bringing in various insights to help us better understand the scriptures and church history. These roundtables will generally follow the 2013 Gospel Doctrine schedule of scriptures, a few weeks ahead of time.
Panelists for this roundtable include Cassandra Hedelius, Craig Foster, and Stephen Smoot.
Some highlights that were discussed include:
- History of Mormonism and politics.
- Personal examples of being involved in politics.
- A discussion of passages in the D&C about being “anxiously engaged,” etc.
This roundtable is also available as an audio podcast, and will be included in the podcast feed. You can listen by pressing the play button or download the podcast below:

I wish the Just Serve was more widely available – I first discovered it over a year ago but there is nothing showing up yet for where I live and I haven’t seen any new locations show up. I hope it does come forward soon. Such a clearinghouse is a great idea because it helps us focus on the service and not have to spend hours and hours locating the ways to serve.
I have found these podcasts/videos to be a great resource in my teaching of the Gospel Doctrine lessons. I appreciate the fresh perspectives of the interviewees and I always learn something new. Well done and a great step forward in Gospel scholarship.
