How were the seeds of the liberation of slaves planted in the text of the New Testament? Why did the King James Translators write “servant” when the word “slave” was in the text? How can we apply this text? How do the lessons in Philemon apply to obedience and freedom? All this (and more!) are covered in the next 19 minutes.

Matthew J. Grow, Managing Director of the Church History Department, on connecting to the people in the Doctrine and Covenants through historical exploration
In the year 2021, as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints study the Doctrine and Covenants, it is important to remember that the book is a compilation of revelations given to early prophets in answer to prayer as they worked to restore the gospel of Jesus Christ. Understanding the people and historical context of the book is key to unlocking the vital spiritual lessons found in its pages. Guest Matthew J. Grow, managing director of the Church History Department, discusses how learning Church history and exploring resources like The Joseph Smith Papers, the “Saints” book series and “Come, Follow Me” can help members connect more to the historic and spiritual record — and discover that these early Saints are more like us than we may have thought before.   The Church News Podcast is a weekly podcast that invites listeners to make a journey of connection with members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints across the globe. Host Sarah Jane Weaver, reporter and editor for The Church News for a quarter-century, shares a unique view of the stories, events, and most important people who form this international faith. With each episode, listeners are asked to embark on a journey to learn from one another and ponder, “What do I know now?” because of the experience. Produced by KellieAnn Halvorsen.

He has served in a stake presidency in Houston, Texas, and also on a high council and as an early morning seminary teacher, and currently serves as a branch president.

Highlights 4:45 About Dustin and what he does as a leadership trainer and career coach 6:00 Where his passion for purpose came from 7:30 Research study: What makes you an effective leader? Identified the only commonality is a clear sense of purpose with a story to go with it 10:15 Transferring this knowledge into the gospel and the church 12:20 Most of us just want to help other people, but we need to get more specific 13:10 What purpose is: your intention to contribute to the well-being of other people 15:20 The concepts for individual and organizational purpose are the same 16:55 Purpose can be confused with goals or a mission; focusing internally is demotivational 18:00 Your purpose is Your Big Why: What drives you 18:35 To identify your purpose you first need to know three things Purpose is broad and ambitious: a big, bold statement It serves as an umbrella over everything It's what wakes us up in the morning It's what motivates us to move forward and pulls us through the hard things "Be anxiously engaged in a good cause" Example of hospital custodial staff who saw themselves as healers 29:20 Macro-purpose, micro-purpose, nano-purpose: everything I do should have purpose 32:00 Dissonance of having a strong purpose and having goals that drive you elsewhere: purpose is the unifying force 33:20 Purpose is short: 10 words or less Share it with other people Edit it down 36:15 Purpose comes from the ups and downs of your life Draw a journey map line Purpose lies in the past, not the future 39:00 Routines to keep your purpose top-of-mind: reading it out loud as an affirmation 40:30 Example of ward council/bishopric purposes: look at the evolution of the unit you are in Let it guide all your goals Let the goals then guide your agenda 44:30 When your calling seems to be outside your purpose: example of educator looking for a way to stop dreading cafeteria duty 48:15 A purpose can't be identified in isolation; we can help others by being a listening ear and by reflecting what we see from the outside 50:10 What has helped shape who I am today? Questions to ask yourself to help identify your purpose: What three people have most shaped who I am today, and why? What are three experiences that have most affected you and why? What are three interests that are most motivating and fulfilling? Imagine you could write the script for you life, knowing everything would go as well as it possibly could. What is the story you'd like to see unravel before you? What is a problem that you see in your family/church/community/city that really bothers you and you want to solve? What is a problem you see that you really want to get to the heart of, that's near and dear to who you are? 52:05 Two forces push against us when it comes to the choice to step up and lead: resistance from the adversary telling us not to grow (fear, lack of confidence, self-doubt) and the reaffirming voice of the Lord telling us to lift where you stand Links Leading with Your God-Given Talents | An Interview with Dustin Peterson Reset: How to Get Paid and Love What You Do, by Dustin Peterson https://thepurposeblueprint.com/training Email: dustin at proofleadership.com Read the TRANSCRIPT of this podcast Note: This transcript was machine-produced.
