You, or perhaps the source you used, have a few things
wrong about Lundgren's religious affiliation. The
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) are
the Mormons, Lundgren and his followers were
originally members of the Reorganized Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter Day Saints (RLDS) who split from the
larger Mormon church in 1860. In 2001 the RLDS
changed their name to Community of Christ. I don't
believe the Lundgren group used any special name for
themselves when they left the RLDS. (Because the
church, always a lot more liberal than the Mormons,
was adopting even more progressive policies, such as
the ordination of women.)
I don't blame you for being confused by the names.
They're very similar, and they're quite a mouth full.
I suspect the leadership of the former RLDS may have
had that partially in mind when they changed their
name to Community of Christ.
