As a general authority for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, President Jeffrey R. Holland has circled the globe more than once — seeing the modern wonders of the world, living in distant lands and knowing wonderful people.
Still, his identity is inseparable with the geology and terrain of southern Utah — his boyhood home.
Returning this week, President Holland, acting president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, rededicated the St. George Utah Temple on Sunday, Dec. 10. The longest operating temple in the Church and the first completed in Utah, the edifice stands as a tribute to the past and a beacon to the future, he said.
