  20. 20. Brother Sikhander Chowhan “As a Muslim, leaving places cleaner than when you arrived is one of the central themes the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) taught. He was a conservationist at heart… [makes] me want to be on the front lines for the Muslim people as far as promoting sustainability and conservation.” “The mosque for Muslims – this is the most sacred place that we have in our community. If you don’t care for your place of worship, my personal belief is that that’s in a way disrespectful to our Creator.”
  21. 21. “Faith has to be relevant for people – in their everyday lives. It’s especially difficult to reach young people. Opportunities like this appeal to people we aren’t as successful reaching through traditional faith community activities like worship and bible study. By doing this work together, we are able to live out our faith commitment to God and to each other in community.” Very Reverend Joan Pritcher
