Sunstone Symposium in Kirtland, Ohio

I will be presenting at the upcoming Sunstone Kirtland Conference in Ohio taking place this coming weekend.  I will be speaking in regards to how faith transitions can be normalized by viewing them through a developmental model and identity formation lens.  Still time to register.

I added this further explanation as a comment:

I use the term faith transition to describe any type of conversion process – whether towards or away from any religious or spiritual practice or belief system. Usually in religious communities conversion towards the faith is celebrated while conversion away from the faith is villainized. My agenda will be to normalize this process both for individuals and the religious community itself. I’ll be doing this by looking at how identity is formed for individuals specifically taking into account developmental stages we all go through at different points of our lives. Hope that clarifies a bit.

    My wife Ruth (who’s an MFT) and I will be there. She’s active LDS and I left the church in 2000. We’re very much looking forward to hearing you and Jennifer speak. We’ve enjoyed your blog and your recent podcast very much. Thanks,
    John
