Worship and the Kairos Moment

2. Plan inspired worship that continually focuses attention on this kairos moment.

  • Have a special kairos-themed worship service near Earth Day. Make use of Earth Sunday worship materials in this resource by Creation Justice Ministries entitled “The Fierce Urgency of Now.”

  • Through dialogue sermons, poetry, and art, invite into worship members of the broader community who are addressing climate and inequality as leaders, thinkers, or artists.

  • Devote at least one minute each Sunday to being a Kairos Moment of Reflection or Call to Action. Learn from Weybridge Congregational Church in Vermont which has a Creation Care Moment each Sunday. Members of an eco-theology affinity group for the UCC's Council for Climate Justice have also collected authored a collection of Kairos Moments for congregations to use.
