Earth day is every day! Here are some ideas for protecting our beautiful and vulnerable earth:
Ground Yourself in the Prophetic! With the climate crisis, the world is in desperate need of prophets. Yet, we can no longer wait for others to be the prophets that were needed yesterday. We have to find the prophet in each of us.
Become a Hub of Resilience! For Earth Sunday, Creation Justice Ministries has created a new resource entitled “Weathering the Storm: Faithful Climate Resilience.” It specifically helps churches respond to the question, “How can our churches be hubs of resilience, helping our neighbors weather the physical and spiritual storms of the climate crisis?” Visit UCC.org for this resource.
Focus on the Children! For their annual Faith Climate Action Week, Interfaith Power & Light has chosen the theme “Sacred Trust: Our Children’s Right to a Livable Future.” Examine our responsibility to safeguard our Earth for future generations and how our faith calls us to respond with just solutions to the climate crisis.
