Representatives of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joined with other faith leaders on 13 October at St John’s Anglican Church in Adelaide in a service as part of a worldwide effort to bring people of faith together to encourage wise stewardship of our environments.
The service, organised by the Multi-faith Association of South Australia and Religions for Peace Australia, was hosted by the Reverend Peter Balabanski, Anglican Parish Priest, with speakers from Sikh, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and Buddhist religious groups.
Adolf Johansson, president of the Australia Adelaide Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, attended with his wife, Martha Johansson. President Johansson spoke to the group about his and his wife’s connection to the Pacific Islands, their service, and the need to accept our custodian responsibility to look after the environment.
All of the speakers lit a candle as a show of unified commitment to action.
