Last month, the Mormon Chapter of the Foundation for Interreligious Diplomacy held its inaugural conference, “Mormon Engagement with World Religions: Perspectives and Possibilities with the Abrahamic Traditions.” The conference was held at the University of California from June 11-12 (program here).
I was very pleased to be invited to attend the conference, but unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control, I found myself unable to attend. I’ve had a long interest in interfaith dialogue and deeply regret not being able to attend and meet the many persons involved in what to me seemed like a singular event. Hopefully, there will be more conferences of this kind in the future.
Fortunately, however, some individuals have shared their notes of the conference. If you know of other write-ups, please let me know.
