Recent emphasis on using "Church" name By Church President Nelson

Postby piperm » Fri Aug 17, 2018 10:31 am

Why has the "Mormon Tabernacle Choir" name not Changed? This would be a very pronounced and missionary attracting opportunity. It is apparently a big deal to use the correct name. Would the world famous Choir name need to more represent the Savior and his church too? Just wondering? Just a question from a convert who loves The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

First off, this is just a user-to-user technical support forum. No one who has any say in this matter visits or sees the posts made here.

With that understanding, from the Church News,
“Mormon” is correctly used in proper names such as the Book of Mormon or when used as an adjective in such historical expressions as “Mormon Trail.”

So, it's possible that the name of the Tabernacle Choir is acceptable. However, there is that part "Additional information about this important matter will be made available in the coming months." So, I wouldn't count out a change to the "MTC".

Actually, I think the only thing that has changed so far is the Style Guide. The announcement was just made yesterday. Any changes will be made in the coming months, as the news release said.

As President Nelson said:
We have work before us to bring ourselves in harmony with His will. In recent weeks, various Church leaders and departments have initiated the necessary steps to do so. Additional information about this important matter will be made available in the coming months.

The coming changes will take quite a bit of work as Church departments determine how to best implement President Nelson's direction. The official statement is only one day old.

Although there are some Church employees who wander these halls trying to be helpful where we can, this forum is intended for user-to-user technical discussion and support. Suggestions like this are not seen by anyone in a capacity to affect any kind of change.
