This fall, through a partnership between Interfaith Power & Light (MD.DC.NoVA), Faith Alliance for Climate Solutions, and Virginia Interfaith Power & Light, pastors, rabbis, imams, and other clergy in congregations across the region will be raising up Creation care and climate change as part of their sermons at weekly services and through other learning programs.
Throughout Virginia, congregations will be inviting their communities to better care for Creation: at home, in our congregations, in our local governments, and around the world.
Congregations will learn and speak out about the Transportation Climate Initiative, a regional collaborative effort to reduce climate pollution that comes from our transportation. This is a powerful opportunity to support a regional effort to reduce the single largest contributor to heat-trapping carbon pollution.
Sign up at ipldmv.org/climatepulpits to commit your congregation to raising up climate during the weekend of November 15-17, or any weekend this fall. You are invited to participate in a way that best fits your community. This could include inviting a guest speaker, hosting a coffee hour discussion, or organizing a workshop.
Ready-to-use resources for raising up climate justice from the pulpit, including bulletin inserts and sermon helpers, in English and Spanish, will be available later this summer.
