Light Through the Cracks

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
– Leonard Cohen

Gina Colvin

Gina Colvin is a “multi-generation life-long Mormon” from New Zealand, of Maori descent, with a multi-racial/international perspective on Mormonism. She hosts the LDS podcast 'A Thoughtful Faith', writes a thought-provoking blog, and is an activist for the revival of the feminine divine in Christianity. She has served on the board of Ordain Women and advocates frequently for intellectual freedom and fiscal transparency in the LDS church.

Dr. Colvin holds a PhD in Journalism and is a research fellow at the University of Canterbury on topics of decolonization and post-colonialism at the intersection of culture, race, gender, class and religion. Most recently she has started work on a Masters degree in theology. Her book Decolonizing Mormonism, co-edited with Joanna Brooks, is forthcoming in 2018 with the University of Utah Press.

You can hear her voice and learn more about her background and the Mormon issues that evoke her passion in this interview.
