On SuperSoul Sunday, Sister Joan defines what it means to be a prophet in today’s world and challenges us to combat complacency and apathy in our own lives. Rather than wait for others to solve the problems of inequality, injustice and poverty, Sister Joan explains why it is both our moral and spiritual responsibility to take action ourselves and make the world a better place for all.

This year’s CWR conference will be held October 1-4 in Mesa, Arizona. Since CWR’s founding in 1994, the annual conference has drawn communicators from around the globe to share ideas, spread awareness of emerging communication trends and support one another in the ministry of communication.
