SALT LAKE CITY — Hundreds of Utah’s faithful convened Saturday for an “interactive preview” of the 2015 Parliament of the World’s Religions, which Salt Lake City will host this October. “To be able to host the parliament is as great as hosting the Olympics,” said Bridget Cook-Burch, a Catholic-turned-Mormon who attended Saturday’s preview. “It’s about coming together as people in a way that is not about competition, but about collaboration and solving what’s happening on our planet.” The five-day conference is expected to draw more than 10,000 devotees from 80 countries and 50 faith traditions. Experts predict a $14 million boost to the surrounding economy.
