St. George offers much more than relaxation and dining. It’s also a mecca for 4-wheeling, skydiving, cliff-hanging and other thrill-seeking adventures. But we’re the easy and safe fun kinda people, not the high risk-taker type ...hahaaa...koe ua makukua fo’i (plus we’re old too). We’re like that not only because of the culture in which we were raised where high physical risk-takers are considered malo vale ma aikaevale (foolhardy and airheaded), but also because of the gospel culture where this counsel by one of our Church leaders rings true, wise and timely:
...all of us can find enjoyment in a wide range of wholesome, entertaining, and engaging activities. But we diminish the importance of our bodies and jeopardize our physical well-being by going to unusual and dangerous extremes searching for an ever greater and more exhilarating adrenaline “rush.” We may rationalize that surely nothing is wrong with such seemingly innocent exploits and adventures. However, putting at risk the very instrument God has given us to receive the learning experiences of mortality - merely to pursue a thrill or some supposed fun, to bolster ego, or to gain acceptance - truly minimizes the importance of our physical bodies. ~ Elder David A. BednarIt was certainly nice and beautiful in St. George.
