    Wonderful donation! I am pretty sure that the family donating these paintings are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and not the Community of Christ.

    This is kind of interesting. Though purely anecdotal, I've heard a number of stories from people who've gone and visited the sites of the Community of Christ and other non Church-owned properties that suggest the majority of visitors to such places are in fact members of the Church( of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints). If that's at all true, I'm humbled that they would consider, exactly as they said regarding chances for people to enjoy them, donating these paintings.

    A wonderful, generous gesture by the Smith/Richards family. Thank you.
