OUR COMMITMENT TO BE IN HARMONY WITH THE REVEALED NAME OF THE CHURCH:
On August 16th, 2018 President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding the name of the Church.
“The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name He has revealed for His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have work before us to bring ourselves in harmony with His will.”
The Church has since released guidelines stating the use of Mormon or LDS as a substitute for the name of the church should be avoided, but such use in proper names such as – The Book of Mormon or when used as an adjective in historical expressions such as – The Mormon Trail – Mormon Battalion, should be considered as the correct use.
The Minerva Teichert Art Gallery has been working to put our website in harmony with this important revelation. It’s been customary for websites like ours to use terms like LDS Art, LDS Temple Art, LDS pictures or Mormon Art when describing our products for Google and other search engines. Our intention has been to help people find what has been termed as LDS products & LDS Gifts. It took many many months to build and add products to this Minerva Teichert art website using those relevant and popular search terms – please bear with us as we find each instance where we can better be in harmony with President Nelson’s message. Thank you for your patience and your kindness during this process – Minerva Teichert Art Gallery
