The San Jose Auxiliary for Good is a new social and support group for progressive, transitioning or post Mormons.
We are looking to provide opportunities for, and create friendships with, people who relate to the conflicted experiences and feelings that accompany shifts away from orthodox belief, and are looking for constructive and positive ways to move forward.
Possible activities of the Auxiliary for Good may include hikes, lectures, movie nights, book groups, kids activities, barbecues, trips to the beach or service projects.
We aim to create a vibrant community committed to helping each other:
• Navigate the ebbs and flows of changing Mormon identity with love and grace.
• Find ways to keep family and church relationships positive and loving, regardless of level of activity within Mormonism.
• Help our children navigate constructive, moral paths independent of whether or not they go to church.
• Engage in activities that foster friendships, personal growth and edification. (Indeed, you may say that we would like to follow the “admonition of Paul” by seeking after things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, virtuous, praiseworthy or of good report.)
Come join us! We welcome all unorthodox Mormons or post Mormons committed to growing a positive, respectful community: Progressive. LGTB. Feminist. Agnostic. Atheist. Transitioning. Mixed-faith. Post. Etc.
This group is a work-in-progress, but we are excited about the potential for friendship, support, personal growth and fun.
