  1. If we want to be referred to by our actual name, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or Latter-day Saints, then we need to actually act like followers/decipiles of Christ. Walk the walk, not just talk the talk, so to speak. I don’t care if somebody calls me a Mormon. I’m more concerned that I’m actually following Christ.
  2. Why don’t we also get rid of the “I’m a Mormon” campaign and Mormon.org? At least it would be consistent. When it’s inconsistently applied, it just confuses people.
  3. New development coming from President Russell M. Nelson and the Mormon Newsroom regarding the name of the Church, including the following: • When referring to the Church, The full name of the Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is encouraged and preferred. • Please refer to members of the Church as Latter-day Saints. Please avoid the term “Mormons.” • Please avoid the term “Mormonism.” It is inaccurate. When a shortened version is needed, please use “The Church of Jesus Christ” or the “restored Church of Jesus Christ”. Please avoid the terms “The Mormon Church” and “The LDS Church.” It will be interesting to see how this goes. If I recall correctly, it has been tried before, but didn’t last very long. The terms “Mormons” and “Mormonism” are deeply ingrained and hard to get rid of. It is part of our identity.

  4. President Trump is under criminal investigation for colluding with a foreign power to sway the election in his favor. I don’t think he should be allowed to appoint a new Supreme Court nominee until after the Special Counsel / Russia investigation is completed. So much is at stake here - Not just abortion rights, but health care, immigrant rights, LGBTQ rights, voting rights, union rights, environmental justice, and so much more. We are in for an ugly, divisive fight.
