Sunstone Toronto is a symposium style conference that brings together traditional, non-traditional and disaffected Latter-day Saints (and many others for whom life and faith is a wonderful but unique adventure) to participate in a free and frank exploration of gospel truths as they relate to the complexities of today's society.
Our keynote speaker will be ex-mormon Dr. John Dehlin (founder of the "Mormon Stories" podcast). He is a psychologist, researcher, and social activist, who will present, "Gifts of the Restoration: A Psychologist's Perspective".
Other notable speakers and guests will include Lindsay Hansen Park (Year of Polygamy podcast), John Hamer (historian, pastor, podcaster) and Art Smith (Apostle in Community of Christ).
