Future of Faith in America: Mormonism

As Mormonism nears its third century, it faces numerous challenges, external and internal, particularly in the United States. The pressures of a changing American culture, the call for greater involvement of women in leadership, and the push for clarity around its own traditions and historical developments continue to drive conversation and reflection among Mormons.

The future of Mormonism may be more successful and more diverse than expected. Obstacles are becoming opportunities for creativity and a broader scope, while cultural challenges are honing Mormonism's unique vision.
