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?
