President Dieter F. Uchtdorf’s Facebook account posted a video of himself from 30 years ago when the Frankfurt Germany Temple was first dedicated. In the interview, President Uchtdorf, who was chairman of the Frankfurt Germany Temple Committee at the time, was able to have an in-depth conversation about his testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In the video, President Uchtdorf speaks of the importance of mutual respect, a topic that remains relevant three decades later.

“I believe that it is most important that we honestly approach one another, that we have tolerance for others, that we respect each other’s faith, that we share the good news with one another,” he said in the interview. “Everyone can choose for themselves what they want to believe and do.”
