SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A disciplinary talk for a Mormon activist threatened with possible excommunication from the church is being delayed.

John P. Dehlin received a letter from a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints leader in Logan last Monday that set a June 18 deadline for them to talk.

The Cache County researcher-blogger says he was told the Mormon leader would have to launch a disciplinary hearing to consider excommunicating him if they failed to talk by then.

But Dehlin says the leader now has agreed to meet with him on June 29 and expressed a "desire for de-escalation" of the conflict.

Dehlin is the creator of a website that provides a forum for church members questioning their faith.

The letter says church leaders are deeply concerned about Dehlin's recent comments about no longer believing fundamental teachings of the faith.
