Sunstone Symposium Begins Tomorrow

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- The annual Sunstone Symposium begins tomorrow, lasting through Saturday, August 5th at the Salt Lake Marriott Hotel, this year opening with a panel discussion of what is the gospel and universal and what is simply cultural. "Pianos and Drums . . . Lessons from Africa" at 8 p.m. tomorrow night, will include former Utah Governor Norm Bangerter, who recently served as an LDS mission president in South Africa.

The rest of the symposium includes a wide variety of topics and expects about the same number of participants as last year's symposium, which attracted 1,000. The Symposium's executive director, Elbert E. Peck, says that this year's symposium has no particular theme, but instead has a wide variety of subjects reflecting many points of view, "We welcome that. We want to address things from all different perspectives."

The generally academic symposium will also have sessions discussing Mormon history, "DNA on the Witness Stand," and "Should Churches Seek Forgiveness?" The symposium will also have its non-academic moments, including a discussion of the film "God's Army" and a look at "The Ten Commandments of Mormon Humor."

As always, the symposium will have an associated book show, art exhibit and auction.
