Faith Communities Send Prayers for Climate Action-2015
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2015 National Preach-In on Global Warming. Interfaith Power & Light’s campaign for climate healing and action over Valentine’s Day involved over 500,000 people of faith, many of them joining Saturday’s synchronized climate prayer, others giving sermons and talks, and still more holding discussions and gathering signatures on Love Creation climate action postcards to send to senators.
“There was something very powerful about knowing that people across the country were praying about this issue at the same time,” said Interfaith Power & Light founder, The Rev. Canon Sally G. Bingham. “It was truly an interfaith, nationwide climate prayer to remind us to take seriously our responsibility to protect Creation.”
