As an international community of religious women, we have witnessed to this Land Ethic by hosting an Earth Summit in Ruma, Illinois; resisting gold mining in Guatemala; and for the past three years, by standing in resistance to the plans of Transco/Williams’ to install and operate a massive fracked gas export pipeline on the very land we hold sacred in Lancaster County,
