SALT LAKE CITY — Last month, two LDS apostles traveled to Washington, D.C., to attend the installation of Russell Moore as head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.
That is one in a long list of examples that signal a detente between Mormons and evangelicals, according to a comprehensive story published by the Religion News Service.
Two more evangelical leaders are scheduled to speak in Utah nearly a decade after they made national interfaith news in 2004 by appearing in the home of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
Richard Mouw, who retired in June as president of the Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif., is scheduled to speak to Mormon college students at Utah Valley University on Nov. 15. The event will take place at noon in the north chapel of the LDS Institute of Religion adjacent to UVU’s campus
