National Conference Coverage Light, Focused on Temples, Faith
Coverage of the LDS Church's annual General Conference in US national newspapers was limited to a handful of Associated Press articles that focused on LDS Church President Gordon B.

RLDS Church Will Become 'Community of Christ' on Friday
The Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, often called the RLDS Church, will change its name this coming Friday to the "Community of Christ" in an attempt to change the way outsiders and Church members look at the Church. Tom Morain, an RLDS Church member in Ames, Iowa, says this move looks forward instead of back, "The word "reorganized' looks back to an event in the 1800s and defines us in relationship to the Mormon Church, and we've moved beyond that. We're trying to get away from the constant comparison to the Mormons," Morain explained.
