Flee to Zion — Should Latter-day Saints move to Salt Lake City?

In the late 1960’s, a stake president in the Bay area asked Harold B. Lee if he should counsel his saints to stay in that area or “flee to Zion” (the Bay area had become a haven for drug abusers & lawbreakers).  President Lee’s counsel was:

1/ We didn’t build a temple in this area just to have the saints move away

2/ Create “Zion” in your hearts and in your homes

3/ Be a “light” to those among whom you live

4/ Focus on the ordinances of the temple and the principles taught therein
