Those plans are international in scope. Dialogues have been held or are planned in other countries. There are educational plans to help train diplomats — chronic compromisers — in how to work with the noncompromising aspects of various religious groups. Many publications are planned, as are videos.
The Mormon Chapter's board includes Daniel C. Peterson, James Faulconer, Robert Millet, J. Spencer Fluhman, Truman G. Madsen, Sterling Van Wagenen, Richard L. Bushman, Claudia Bushman, Jana Riess, Sylvia Cabus, J. Bonner Ritchie, Boyd Petersen, Melissa Wei-Tsing Inouye, John Kesler, Sharon Adams, James McLachlan, Jade Romney and Gerald T. Snow. The chapter's Web page says its members are "dedicated to peace-building through understanding and the respectful exchange of ideas."
"If you can imagine a high-quality Mormon missionary sitting down talking with a high-quality Sunni missionary. Or, a Catholic missionary sitting down and talking with a Buddhist missionary. That's the kind of dialogue we're having," Paul said, "where people are clearly interested in proclaiming the truth that they have. But the price of admission is that they will listen genuinely and sincerely to the other party proclaim to them as part of the dialogue."
