From Surviving to Thriving: Learning How to “Do” Church as an Adventurous Mormon

Early on in a faith shift, most of us begin to feel less comfortable at church, sure that we’re the only one thinking (what seem to be) bigger thoughts about the topics at hand, or frustrated at appeals to authority instead of genuine engagement. “Where’s the growth?” “Where’s the curiosity?”, we wonder. Experiences like these can change, however, and church can once again become a rich experience, even enjoyable. In this session, two veterans of Mormon faith shifts share a few of their secrets to once more “thrive” at church. And they want to hear yours, too! This session will feature a vigorous discussion.
