With the change in LDS Church leadership, the opportunity comes for new social policies that don’t compromise the faith’s eternal doctrines (blacks in the priesthood is a good example).

So, with an eye toward retaining the more progressive-minded Mormon millennials, here are a few tweaks that might make sense as President Russell M. Nelson and his team tackle the challenges facing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:

• Adopt gender-neutral church greetings. How about “Saint Smith” instead of “Sister Smith” and “Saint Jones” rather than “Brother Jones”?

• Sponsor casual Fridays at the Salt Lake LDS Temple so unworthy people strolling through Temple Square could pop in without a “recommend” to use the restroom.

• Make a strong statement during General Conference that opioid abuse is worse than medical marijuana.

• Relax the no-beard policy at Brigham Young University. Allow, say, Brigham Young- or John Taylor-style whiskers, but forbid full-on Lorenzo Snow or Joseph F. Smith ones.

• Look the other way when regular BYU students, not just high-profile sports stars, get tattoos.

• Have a Political Diversity Day twice a month ­— perhaps on alternating Mondays with family home evening — to encourage faithful Mormons to watch MSNBC for two hours and share with the family nationally syndicated columns by Dana Milbank and E.J. Dionne.

• Conduct sensitivity training in LDS Primary classes that teach children it is wrong to throw rocks at classmates whose parents had Hillary Clinton signs in their yards.

• Shift the focus of bishop’s interviews with young Mormons from talking about sexual practices to assuring them that if they vote for a Democrat, they won’t go to hell.

• Invite the apostles to dress, cosplay style, during one General Conference session to better connect with younger generations. Nelson, for instance, would be a fine Dumbledore. Dallin H. Oaks could be Gollum, and Dieter F. Uchtdorf would make a great X-wing pilot.

• Hold virtual sacrament meetings via Facebook Live.

• Give participation trophies to those serving partial Mormon missions.

• Allow parents to cover their young adult children’s tithing obligations.

• Ease temple recommend interviews by always saying, “You tried your best, and that’s all that really matters.”

• Do home teaching through inspirational Instagram posts.

• Change men’s and women’s restroom signs in meetinghouses with signs that say: “We don’t care, just wash your hands.”

• Find better music.

• Introduce other inspiring texts (maybe “Harry Potter” and “The Hunger Games”) into Sunday school lessons.

• Cut the Sunday meeting block by two hours.

• Ease up on the Word of Wisdom by rewarding temple attendance with an after-session wine social. It could be confined to red wine and just one glass per templegoer. After all, many doctors preach that such a practice is good for the heart. Besides, it also could make those members feel more closely connected to the dead non-Mormon imbibers for whom they were just vicariously baptized.
