Sacred Earth, Sacred Trust: Worldwide Day of Prayer & Action for People & Planet
June 12, 2016
FAITHS RISING FOR PEOPLE & PLANET
Sacred Earth, Sacred Trust is a worldwide, multi-faith day of prayer & action for the planet and a call for world leaders to commit to a 1.5 degree limit on global temperature rise.
Six months after world leaders reached the Paris Agreement, communities around the world will come together in a day of beautiful commitment and blessing for the earth.
Around the world communities will be joining in an incredible variety of ways. Our diversity is our strongest power.
Here are just a couple of the ways communities are joining in:
- Say a prayer, make a blessing, sing a song or meditate – on your own, with your family or bring your community together.
- Stage a sit in meditation outside a place that’s important locally – a new fracking site, your town hall, a coal mine, or a place that’s at risk.
- Hold your service outdoors, to reconnect the community to nature.
- Organise a community project – paint a mural, banners or build a sculpture.
- A march through your town, bring together people from your community and beyond around protecting our planet for the vulnerable.
Then, we share our celebrations and actions with the world using #SacredEarth2016!
We Will Celebrate
The earth as sacred; worthy of our respect, awe and veneration.
We Will Reaffirm
That ultimately, we aren´t earth’s owners, but rather her caretakers.
We will Reassert
Our moral responsibility for the well-being, interdependence of all life and
show our solidarity with the most vulnerable.
