RLDS Church to Consider Name Change
The RLDS Church will consider changing its name at its biennial world conference in April, in order to avoid confusion with the larger LDS Church.

LDS Group From London Updates Hymns
The London-based LDS group Soul Saints will perform in Provo Saturday night, bringing its brand of "ghetto-hip-hop-R&B" music, and LDS singer/composer Michael McLean says their music "can't help but make you smile." The group sings LDS Hymns in R&B and hip-hop arrangements, "They're not taking the words or meaning out of its context," said McLean. "But because it's to different music, it has the potential to reach those who can't be reached in any other way."


LDS Group Plans Major, Innovative Kansas City Development
An LDS Church affiliated group filed a master plan with Kansas City to create the largest housing development proposed in the City in more than 50 years. The plan is also notable because it tries to replicate old-style neighborhoods - including such features as back alleys between houses, town squares, and apartments on top of shops. The development is being created just west of Liberty, Missouri in an area rich with Mormon history.
