EVENT DESCRIPTION:

The 2012 election season has brought The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints into the center of the public eye. According to the 2012 Religious Congregations and Membership Study, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the fastest growing religious community in half of states in the USA. Still, the Church is a religious community unfamiliar to many, even as Mitt Romney's run for the Presidency causes many people to turn to media and politics for their questions about Mormon beliefs. This trend raises many more questions about the relationship of religion and the public square, such as:

1.What is the prominent role of faith in the LDS community's sense of the public square?

2.For the LDS community, how does faith shape engagement in the public square?


CONTEXT:  
Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry is committed to convening and inviting conversations on important issues in culture and society from various faith perspectives and traditions. This commitment is deeply rooted in the larger ethos of the Ignatian tradition. The Ignatian adage 'Ad Magorem Dei Gloria' (For the Greater Glory of God) is about striving for a greater consciousness and awareness, both within the public square and within the community of worship. Seattle University's School of Theology and Ministry seeks to establish deeper, more sustainable, and higher levels of engagement over the next few years and it is in a prime academic and institutional milieu to convene dialogue, relationships of trust, and lectures for the greater Seattle region.
