(RNS) After 33 years and many requests for an update, the LDS Church is revising its hymnal to reflect Mormonism's global membership.
Readers came up with great suggestions last weekend about Mormon hymns to offload, and others to add. The problem is that there's not going to be a new LDS hymnal anytime soon.

By most standards of the Slow Church movement, Mormonism is a terrific success. By others, though, we're failing craptastically.
