LOS ANGELES โ€” What does the future of faith look like? How will stories be told about it? And by whom?

RNA 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. (REGISTER)

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"), Sharon Brous (founding rabbi of IKAR), and Jason DeRose (Western bureau chief of NPR), among others, "Reimagining Religion" will highlight how โ€” through diverse means of storytelling โ€” communicators are instigators for change.

Awards can be used for registration ($99), hotel or travel. Scholarship applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis beginning Nov. 8.
