This past August, President Nelson asked us to embrace the formal name of the Church. 1
We’ve now had several months to adapt to this change in our individual interactions. With the advent of the Christmas concert season, we’re formally seeing how these changes are being embraced by musical groups that used to include “Mormon” in their titles.
Last night the renamed Washington DC Temple Choir performed for hundreds of dignitaries, including the Ambassador of Paraguay and Elder Holland. Though the website and official logo have yet to reflect the change, the local choir has begun the shift to distance themselves from the “Mormon” moniker which has been used in the past.
I’d be interested to hear of:
- New names for groups where “Mormon” used to be part of the name
- Instances where you have been pleased with how adaptation to President Nelson’s request has opened dialogue
- Situations where you used to use the term “Mormon” and have yet to find a satisfying alternative
