Wyoming’s Common Ground becomes “Sacred Ground”

September 27, 2007

Taking care of God's green earth. Faith leaders and outdoor groups in Wyoming are meeting in Lander Thursday, and through the weekend, to discuss what they have in common when it comes to the environment. The Rev. Rebekah Simon-Peter with Bridgeworks says there's strong agreement about what people care about.

"All of us care about Wyoming. We all want to ensure that the state stays beautiful and full of abundant wildlife. These are things that draw people to Wyoming."

Simon-Peter says the groups will explore the science of climate change and look at ways church facilities, events and meetings can become more eco-friendly. They will also discuss the role the booming energy industry plays in the state. The "On Sacred Ground" conference is coordinated by the Wyoming Conservation Voters Education Fund.

The Rev. Warren Murphy with the Wyoming Association of Churches says being stewards of the land is a biblical command.

"The most significant common ground we share in this whole world right now is saving the planet. Doing something to slow things down and prevent global warming."

The conference is at the Lander Community Center. More information can be found on-line at
