Interfaith Climate Vigil

The Green Team of Christ Church hosted an Interfaith Climate Vigil in January 2017 — during the first 100 hours of our nation’s new administration — to hold our planet Earth in prayer.

Remembering that Scripture teaches us that we are stewards of Creation, it is more now more urgent than ever that we become spiritually and politically engaged in protecting our environment. No matter what actions are taken in the future in regard to the health of our environment, it is important to remember that we are all in this together. Divisiveness on climate change issues delays creative action. It is time for us to come together in prayer as we  find our way forward.

You can access the program for the vigil here. Many found it helpful. Feel free to copy and use it as a guide for your own prayers and meditations about our common stewardship of the earth.
