  • At this conference, you will have an opportunity to share a personally meaningful faith experience, practice, or belief. Ideally, by identifying a moment in your life in which you discovered some insight about your religious tradition, community, or life. This narrative will be around 200-300 words, but you do not need to have that fully developed right now - this space is just for you to share some initial thoughts about the story you might share.
