Remembering Gene: A Silent Decade

Ten years ago, Gene England died. His unique voice, the moral clarity of his mind, and the energy of his spirit are keenly missed by all who knew him. Gene would have had important things to say about the 9/11 terrorist attacks and our (Mormon and American) response to them, and about other issues facing us today: the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and beyond, as well as poverty, climate change, health care—and of course the changes and challenges in Mormon religion and culture over the past decade. The session will consist of a collection of small remembrances— 2-5 minutes each—in which members of the Sunstone community are invited to share an anecdote or a brief passage from his writing in order to create a mosaic tribute to a major contributor to the development of Mormon thought and culture.
