LA conference explores future of faith and storytelling

What does the future of faith look like? How will stories be told about it? And by whom?

LOS ANGELES, USA, December 15, 2017 / -- Religion News Association will join a host of partners working at the intersection of journalism, religion, communication and culture to present the one-day event "Reimagining Religion 2018: New Stories, New Communities" on Jan. 26 at the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism in Los Angeles.

One of the biggest religion stories today is the rising number of Americans who no longer identify with a particular religion. But disaffiliation is only one side of the story.

The current period of flux also is characterized by people and congregations exploring spirituality and experimenting with new forms of religious expression.

For communicators and journalists, today's religious creativity represents opportunities for more complex and compelling narratives of meaning, purpose and identity that will engage audiences.

Featuring Barbara Hall (creator of "Joan of Arcadia" and "Madam Secretary"), Aziza Hasan (executive director of NewGround: A Muslim-Jewish Partnership for Change), and Jason DeRose (Western bureau chief of NPR), among others, "Reimagining Religion" will highlight how — through diverse means of storytelling — communicators are instigators for change.

The event is hosted by the Knight Program in Media and Religion at the Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism in cooperation with Religion News Association and Religion Communicators Council, as well as with co-sponsors: the USC Center for Religion and Civic Culture, Claremont School of Theology, and Los Angeles First United Methodist.
