There’s still time to get FREE hard copies of the 2012 Preach-In on Global Warming materials sent to you, but the deadline is close of business on January 17, 2012. What you get for registering through the NC IPL website is a package from national Interfaith Power & Light with a DVD (Preaching for the Planet), Valentine’s Day postcards for people to fill out and send to their senators urging them to “love the Earth”, and bulletin inserts to help people understand what the Preach-In on Global Warming is all about. You will also receive an e-mail with details for downloading the thematic denomination-specific scripture resources that you can use during Preach-In (February 10-12, 2012). There will also be a website page with other resources to help you prepare for a successful event as they become available.
Perhaps even more importantly, when you register to participate in the Preach-In weekend, you are also being counted as one of the congregations or faith leaders who are committed to the care of God’s creation as a matter of faith and religious duty. The larger our numbers, the louder our voice will be in Washington and in our states. We need to tackle climate change at all levels, from individual to international and the Preach-In is a great way to help advance the movement.
If you miss the 17th, you can still participate by going to the website and downloading materials, and we hope you will, but you don’t get counted in the same powerful way. So, register TODAY.
Thank you for all you do to care for Creation!
