In 2024, on the weekend before or after Earth Day, we invite congregations to gather outdoors in a place that needs healing – maybe a city park, riverbank, or stretch of woods. Bring whatever tools you need (e.g., gloves, trash bags, rakes, shovels). We’ve created a simple, ecumenical outdoor liturgy that can be adapted to your own needs and location. Healing Our Hearts, Healing the Land is a 90-minute, family-friendly liturgy that includes time for walking, outdoor cleanup, and prayer. It could be followed by lunch or refreshments. Invite the public!
Celebrate Earth Sunday on April 21 or 28, 2024. You can find preaching resources in PRAY.
Interfaith Power & Light will hold its annual Faith Climate Action Week from April 19 - 28, 2024.
This year’s theme is “Common Ground: Cultivating Connections between Faith, Food, and Climate.”
The kit will include a guide with information on the faithful call to care for our soil through regenerative agriculture practices. The kit includes suggested short films, an updated climate change fact sheet, faith-based discussion materials on faith and agriculture, and suggestions and resources for how to engage in supporting local action.
