Interfaith Power & Light Invites Congregations to join Valentine’s Weekend Preach-In on Climate Change
Interfaith Power & Light expects its 2015’s Preach-In on Climate Change to be the biggest yet. The organization and its 40 state affiliates are aiming to sign up 3,000 faith communities to preach or hold educational events on Valentine’s Day weekend. The Preach-In will reach over one million people of faith and focus on the message of climate justice and loving God’s Creation.
“The Preach-In is our most popular event of the year, hands-down,” said organizer Andree Duggan. “We’ve learned a lot from our congregations about what they need from us, and we provide everything from sample sermons and prayers, to bulletin inserts and post cards to senators. There’s something very powerful about knowing thousands of congregations are preaching about this issue at the same time. And this year we’ll be adding a synchronized prayer for climate action on Valentine’s Day.”
Ninety-percent of all major faith traditions are represented in this event and most have issued climate statements about the moral imperative to act as responsible stewards of the Earth. We hope your faith community will join with us in participating in the Preach-In on Global Warming.
