BREAKING NEWS: Church Handbook Released; New Church Wi-fi Netowrk Specifics Announced

Hello again, everyone! As I mentioned in a comment earlier today, the Newsroom released new information about the one-volume new handbook for Church members, which included an official letter from the First Presidency that provided details about the changes, along with a list of FAQs. The Church News provided additional context and further resources. I took some time earlier today to review much of the new handbook, and it is well worthy of your time and attention. If that were the only development for which I was posting now to reiterate its' significance, that would be reason enough for a new post here, but in the hours since the new handbook was released, another Church nrws article announced that the Church will also be implementing a new wifi network. The previous network name "LDSAccess", will be retired in response to President Nelson's reemphasis on the correct name of the Church. Meetinghouse networks can now be accessed under the name "Liahona", which comes from the Book of Mormon tool given to Lehi's family that gave them direction from the Lord as they gave heed to it.

This change is appropriate in my mind because worship in Church meetinghouses should rightly be focused on the way in which such instruction guides us in our daily walks of life during the week. Although the "LDSAccess" network will be available for usage in meetinghouses through April 15 of this year, Church leaders and members are being encouraged to immediately begin using the "Liahona" wifi network instead. I am grateful that, whenever there has been any doubt about whether or not a change should be made to Churchwide names or resources, there has always been a preference towards making such changes. Eliminating the wifi network with "LDS" in the name appears to be a commonsense move. And I am grateful to see the many ways media outlets and other organizations have made themselves compliant with President Nelson's efforts to ensure the correct name of the Church is more commonly utilized.

I continue to monitor all Church news and temple updates and will do my level best to bring word of those to you all here as I become aware of such things. That does it for now. Any and all comments are, as always, welcome and appreciated, on any post at any time, as long as such comments are made in accordance with the established guidelines.
