“I am here today to ask Utah representatives to listen to the call for
action coming from the people represented here today: a diverse
group from many faith traditions who found a common ground in
wilderness.” Dede Carpenter, Community of Grace Presbyterian Church.

 

Faith & the Land Event at Utah Capitol (3)
“Our beliefs may differ, but our values harmonize on this essential
point: Wilderness teaches humility, wonder, respect and gratitude
for the creator.”  George Handley, Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints.

 

Faith & the Land Event at Utah Capitol (4)
“The Faith and the Land conversations have found neglected and
elusive common ground.  We have tapped into shared mainstream
values in Utah: citizens from all walks of life and faith traditions
passionately and sincerely want their grandchildren to have the same
liberty to visit and explore untrammeled wilderness and leave it as
they find for their grandchildren.”  Steve Trimble, member of Utah’s
Jewish Reconstructionist congregation Chavurah B’Yachad.
