In February of 2010, over 50 congregations in North Carolina were some of over 400 congregations in 40 states participating in a national Preach-In on Global Warming. Here’s how you can participate in the coming year:
Faith Leaders: Mark your calendars!
Interfaith Power and Light is inviting faith leaders to preach a sermon on global warming the weekend of February 11-13, 2011. As the date approaches, we will be offering lectionary resources and sample sermons (for diverse faith traditions) to those who have registered.
Host a Discussion
In addition to sermons, or as an alternative, we are encouraging congregations to screen films and host discussions on putting faith into action. Resources are available to those who register, including a film, fact sheets on current legislation, and discussion guides.
Send Your Senators Valentines!
Leading up to the event, participating congregations will distribute Valentine’s Day post cards to their members to mail in, encouraging senators to love their neighbors by passing legislation cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
If that weekend is not available, please consider another weekend in February. We hope to have congregations in every state participating.
