Earth Sunday 2019

world_in_hands.jpgThis year celebrate Earth Sunday on April 28th. Here are three ideas for making the most of this special Sunday:

  • Connect Caring for God's Creation with a Focus Children and Youth – How we care for God’s creation is intimately intertwined with issues of generational justice. What kind of world are our children presently inheriting? What will the world be like when they get older? The UCC Environmental Justice Ministry joined with the ecumenical Creation Justice Ministries to author and produce reflective materials on generational justice for this Earth Sunday.

  • Participate in Faith Climate Action Week – Interfaith Power & Light shares a wealth of resources for an entire week. This year the focus is on finding joy and rejuvenation in the natural world. Resources relate to why we love and protect our planet.  A toolkit is available along with online worship resources and more.
  • Launch a Discussion Group with Community Members – In partnership with the Sierra Club's Ready for 100 program and Everyday Democracy, the Environmental Ministry Program of the UCC has created a small group discussion guide focused on seeking clean, affordable energy for our society. Within your faith community or in collaboration with others, bring together 10 to 12 people over the course of four weeks to have guided conversations that lead to actions generated by participants.
