Sunstone Europe 2016

SunstoneEuropeEnglish

The LDS Church traces its origins to western New York state in the USA. The Church’s early history was defined in part by its missionary activities, and England was one of the earliest places to be proselytised, due to the shared language. Some early members were also English, of English origin, living in the USA.

Today, Mormonism is a diverse and international religion. Sunstone will host its first ever conference outside of America in an effort to reflect and recognize the diversity of a global church. Our first international conference will be hosted in Birmingham, England on February 26th, 2016.

Sunstone Southwest 2016

SUNSTONESW16-001

Mesa has been home to Mormons for over a century. The LDS temple in Mesa was one of the first to be constructed by the church. Announced in 1919, only a few years after Arizona had achieved statehood, it was one of 3 temples announced and constructed to serve outlying Latter-day Saint settlements in the early part of the century.

As Arizona has changed over the years, so too has Mormonism in Arizona, creating exciting new opportunities and experiences for those rooted in the LDS Faith. Join Sunstone on February 20, 2016 as we discuss all the different paths Mormons in Arizona are taking.

6:00pm Keynote: Jake Spurlock, WIRED magazine

Mormons and Tech

In this tech talk, Mormon history is looked at under the lens of the major technological advances, and how they changed the underlying religion. Starting with the printing press, photocopiers, and now the Internet. 🙌🙏

Jake Spurlock is a software engineer on the Wired tech team, overseeing digital publishing, content management, and web performance. Prior to his work at WIRED, Spurlock led web development at Maker Media, overseeing Make: magazine and Maker Faire. He has a degree in digital media from Utah Valley University, and while originally a Utah native, he currently lives in the Bay Area with his wife and three kids.

Lunch Presentation

Where We Stand – the story of a controversial group of Mormon feminists fighting for women’s ordination in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The film follows Abby Hansen, a stay-at-home mom turned vocal advocate for Ordain Women as she navigates the repercussions of her unpopular activism against her church in her predominantly Mormon suburb. The film is not just for Mormons. It is not just for feminists. It is for anyone who has questioned what it means to believe and to belong.

Kristine Stolakis is a documentary filmmaker dedicated to creative, complex, and character-driven storytelling. Her films have played at festivals internationally, including Hot Docs International, Seattle International, and Frameline.

 2014 Theme–Bridges and Byways: Traversing the Mormon Landscape

Bridges are structures that span barriers and allow us to move between physical locations. Byways are secondary roads—the scenic routes that emphasize exploration and the journey. How can thinking about bridges and byways help us understand Mormon history, theology, and culture?

The need for bridges is often obvious: there’s a chasm, road, or waterway to cross. Metaphorically speaking, we can construct bridges of understanding that connect people and ideas. Where does it make sense to build new bridges? How much of our resources should we use to maintain aging bridges? When do we need to demolish outdated bridges? When do we reinforce or rebuild bridges that have become unsound? Is our intent to build permanent, lasting structures—or quick, temporary crossings?

Metaphorical byways suggest the pursuit of knowledge off the beaten (or correlated) path—the fascinating historical tidbits and obscure figures that enrich and deepen our understanding. Brigham Young once said “Mormonism includes all truth.” Byways can help us find new and divergent ways to create an interconnected system.

As the LDS Church evolved over nearly two centuries, which of its bridges and byways became mainstream thoroughfares? Which bridges deteriorated or fell into disuse? What new bridges and byways are being built as the LDS Church expands nationally and globally? What has changed about our thoroughfares since the early days of the Church? Which bridges have been built by Church headquarters and which have sprung up through grassroots efforts?

Early Saints watched bridges being burned behind them as they were driven from settlements in the Midwest. What effect did this persecution have on Mormons’ willingness to build or rebuild bridges with the outside world later on? How has modern Mormonism bridged the divide between itself and other New Religious movements; between the larger religious landscape in the US and the rest of the globe? Where has two-way traffic flowed smoothly on Mormonism’s bridges to the outside world and where have there been bottlenecks and collisions? When has tension arisen between those Saints who prefer well-traveled bridges and those who prefer the byways?

Finally, how has the information superhighway rerouted traffic? Certainly, Mormons are more connected than ever before; what are the benefits to these additional means of connectivity? And what costs are being exacted? Along our byways, where are the rest stops, the historical markers, the toll booths, the road closures, and the perpetual construction zones?

2014 Theme–Bridges and Byways: Traversing the Mormon Landscape

Bridges are structures that span barriers and allow us to move between physical locations. Byways are secondary roads—the scenic routes that emphasize exploration and the journey. How can thinking about bridges and byways help us understand Mormon history, theology, and culture?

The need for bridges is often obvious: there’s a chasm, road, or waterway to cross. Metaphorically speaking, we can construct bridges of understanding that connect people and ideas. Where does it make sense to build new bridges? How much of our resources should we use to maintain aging bridges? When do we need to demolish outdated bridges? When do we reinforce or rebuild bridges that have become unsound? Is our intent to build permanent, lasting structures—or quick, temporary crossings?

Metaphorical byways suggest the pursuit of knowledge off the beaten (or correlated) path—the fascinating historical tidbits and obscure figures that enrich and deepen our understanding. Brigham Young once said “Mormonism includes all truth.” Byways can help us find new and divergent ways to create an interconnected system.

As the LDS Church evolved over nearly two centuries, which of its bridges and byways became mainstream thoroughfares? Which bridges deteriorated or fell into disuse? What new bridges and byways are being built as the LDS Church expands nationally and globally? What has changed about our thoroughfares since the early days of the Church? Which bridges have been built by Church headquarters and which have sprung up through grassroots efforts?

Early Saints watched bridges being burned behind them as they were driven from settlements in the Midwest. What effect did this persecution have on Mormons’ willingness to build or rebuild bridges with the outside world later on? How has modern Mormonism bridged the divide between itself and other New Religious movements; between the larger religious landscape in the US and the rest of the globe? Where has two-way traffic flowed smoothly on Mormonism’s bridges to the outside world and where have there been bottlenecks and collisions? When has tension arisen between those Saints who prefer well-traveled bridges and those who prefer the byways?

Finally, how has the information superhighway rerouted traffic? Certainly, Mormons are more connected than ever before; what are the benefits to these additional means of connectivity? And what costs are being exacted? Along our byways, where are the rest stops, the historical markers, the toll booths, the road closures, and the perpetual construction zones?

We invite proposals that amplify and develop ideas about Mormonism’s various bridges and byways for next year’s Salt Lake Symposium.

 Submit proposals to SunstoneME@gmail.com by April 14, 2014 for first-round consideration.

See the Sunstone.org Symposium page for proposal submission instructions.

Theme: MORMON BODIES: LITERAL, METAPHORICAL, DOCTRINAL

Deadline for first-round consideration: Extended to 17 April 2013

Click here to see the Call for Papers and a description of the 2013 theme.

We especially encourage proposals that focus on this year’s theme: MORMON BODIES: LITERAL, METAPHORICAL, DOCTRINAL.
One of Mormonism’s most distinctive attributes is the emphasis on embodiment, which is not merely a condition of mortality but a crucial step in the journey to become like god, who “has a body of flesh and bones as tangible as man’s” (D&c 130:22). Bodies are a primary way we learn about the world, a source of pleasure and temptation, something to be both enjoyed and tamed. How do LDS ideas about sex, sin, illness, food, pleasure, procreation, disability, parenthood, gender, and godhood affect our experiences of our bodies? How do doctrines of embodiment affect the way Latter-day Saints think, feel, and discuss their bodies?

Jesus had a mortal body, but we don’t talk about its suffering, preferring to dwell on his resurrected form. Heavenly Mother has a body, but we are discouraged from talking about hers. The bodiless Holy Ghost is constantly making our bosoms burn, or calling tears to our eyes, or standing us up and walking us to the podium during testimony meeting.

What metaphors are hidden in our obsession with bodies? How does our bodily approach to the world both expand and constrain our view of the divine? What is the relationship between spirit and body (is it only the body that must be tamed)? What paradoxes does our view of bodies force us to live in?

Furthermore, the “body of Christ” is a metaphor for the Church, but Mormons avoid emphasizing the literal body of Christ. Why are some literal bodies more important than others? Which bodies matter most?

Mormonism also encompasses many different collective bodies: various traditions tracing their roots back to Joseph Smith, and various governing bodies overseeing different communities or texts or enterprises. Finally, in its relatively short history, Mormonism has produced a remarkably rich and diverse body of thought and scripture. How do all these Mormon bodies collide against, control, nurture, or support one another?

We also welcome reflections on other topics and their intersection with Mormonism, as well as studies of historical and contemporary events and figures, news in the Mormon world, online communities, theological explorations, and Mormon cultural studies.

Sunstone Lecture December 11, 2011: Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

“Stirring up LDS History”
Relief Society sisters now have a new resource—a compact history of the Relief Society called Daughters of My Kingdom. The new manual, which is to be used from time to time for lessons given the first Sunday of each month, is not only unusual for its focus on women but for its chronological organization. Most Church manuals are organized thematically, offering little scope for discussing change over time.  Despite its uplifting narrative, this manual may require a new set of skills. As teachers of women’s history know, you can’t just “add women and stir.”
This event was held at the Gould Auditorium at the J. Willard Marriott Library on the University of Utah campus, 295 S 1500 East, Salt Lake City and was co-sponsored by the Marriott Library.

NOTE: CHANGE OF VENUE
Due to a scheduling conflict with our long-time venue in Salt Lake, the 2011 August symposium is moving to the  Weber State University campus in Ogden, UT. All symposium sessions and workshops will be in the Shepherd Union building at WSU.
We regret the inconvenience this change of venue will cause and are doing everything we can to make the transition as smooth as possible for you.
Meeting on a university campus makes many amenities available to you that we could not otherwise offer–including half day child care, the Union food court, grill, and convenience store, Starbucks, meals from top-notch campus catering, the on-site WSU Bookstore, inexpensive dorm accommodations, and comprehensive AV equipment and technical support in every meeting room.

Rates are $87/night (single), $94/night (triple) and $101/night (quad), plus tax and includes complimentary breakfast.
The guest rooms in our block have either one King or two Queen sized beds and are equipped with microwave, mini fridge, hairdryer, and coffee maker. There is complimentary high speed wireless Internet throughout the hotel.
Guests must book before July 20, 2011 to secure the discounted rates. To make reservations, call the hotel directly at (801) 627-1900.
Other downtown hotels (Ogden Marriott, Comfort Suites, Holiday Inn Express) or hotels farther from downtown may also have availability during our event.

ONSITE CHILD CARE AT WSU
We’ve arranged to have WSU provide half-day onsite child care for children ages 2-9 at the Symposium during the afternoon sessions (2:00-6:00 pm). There are a limited number of slots open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Child care is available by reservation through WSU’s online system:
https://secure.touchnet.com/C20249_ustores/web/store_cat.jsp?STOREID=23&CATID=53
There is no charge for children enrolled in child care; however, WSU requires parents to complete a registration packet for each child in advance with emergency contact numbers, health and immunization history, and physician contact information. Register online for childcare and the packet will be emailed to you to fill out and return.
PARKING INFORMATION
Parking for Symposium attendees is available free of charge in lot A2 on weekdays and weekends (north of the Student Union) and in lot A10 on Saturday only. The closest handicapped parking is in the parking lot (PPL) just south of the Student Union; there is no charge for parking if your vehicle has state-issued handicapped tags or placards. Please see the campus map on page 39 of the Preliminary Program for parking lot and building locations.

TRANSPORTATION
We are working out the details for a WSU shuttle to provide service between downtown Ogden/25th Street hotels, the FrontRunner station, and WSU campus during peak times/meal breaks on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the Symposium.
SLC AIRPORT/OGDEN and OGDEN/SLC AIRPORT
If you need transportation between Salt Lake International Airport and Ogden UT–especially on Sunday when there is no public transportation running–we’ve made arrangements with a local shuttle company to provide transportation service August 3-7, 2011.
To make a reservation on a shared shuttle, contact CITY EXPRESS TRANSPORTATION at 1-866-385-2489, visit their website, www.airportexpressutah.com, to fill out and submit a reservation form online, or contact the City Express manager, amir@cityexpresstransportation.com .
The cost is $45 per person each direction on a shared shuttle. NOTE: Shuttle reservations MUST be made AT LEAST 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE. Otherwise the $45 negotiated price will not apply.
Shuttle bus service between Salt Lake City and WSU is proving to be quite costly. Since there are several public transportation options available weekdays, including FrontRunner commuter train service and UTA express buses, we encourage symposium attendees to use public transit.
Find information on FrontRunner commuter train schedules here:

Proposals are due 15 May 2011 for first-round consideration.

The 2011 Restoration Studies/Sunstone Midwest Symposium: A Call for Papers
Sponsored by JWHA, the Community of Christ Seminary and Sunstone
Plan to participate in the fourth annual Restoration Studies & Sunstone Midwest    Symposium in Independence, Missouri, at the Graceland University Independence  Campus on April 15-16, 2011.
We will explore the theme: “A Woman’s Place…” Ideas, Impacts, and Experiences of Restoration Women. Women make up half or more than half the membership of churches, but their roles and impacts have sometimes been undervalued and underappreciated. This year, we hope you will help us consider how women have shaped the church, from theological thought and ideas to practices and the lived church experience. How have women impacted the Restoration and Christianity in general, and the Community of Christ and LDS Church in particular?
