Why YOU Should Help Stopthe Mt. Hermon Felton Meadow Project.
“In every community there is work to be done.
In every nation, there are wounds to heal.
In every heart there is the power to do it.”
“Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out going to the mountains is going home; that wilderness is a necessity.”
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
