SL09273 Panel: Community of Christ Principles of Church History: A Turning Point and a Good Example?

Unlike the Community of Christ, the LDS Church has no formally defined history principles, but it does have fairly clear positions enunciated by officials on various levels toward various historical events and attitudes. This panel discusses the origins and implementation of these nine principles in the Community of Christ with particular attention to the questions: What problems are these principles supposed to solve? If there were a parallel LDS set of principles, what would they say, and what principles are they supposed to solve? How are both approaches working so far? What might be some unintended consequences for both faith movements?
