“Perhaps the Mormon experience—which was in its initial phase a protest against the world of harsh capitalist individualism, but then through much of the twenty century became an increasingly adaptation to that world which it originally rejected—perhaps that experience could give food for thought, not only for Mormons, but for all of us who live in this nation. Mormons often criticize the larger society in which they live and contrast it to their own vigorous community. How many of them realize that their own current social, economic, and political views and actions may contribute to the wasteland they see around them? Or that their own experience as a people might suggest a very different course for America today. “
-Robert Bellah as quoted by Thomas Griffith
Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought has begun Zooming a once a month fireside. Their inaugural fireside was impressive and important. Recently retired federal court judge, Thomas B. Griffith spoke about “A Latter-day Saint Approach to Politics.” I highly recommend it.
Dialogue is an independent quarterly established to express Mormon culture and to examine the relevance of religion to secular life. It is edited by Latter-day Saints who wish to bring their faith into dialogue with the larger stream of world religious thought and with human experience as a whole and to foster artistic and scholarly achievement based on their cultural heritage.
