More than 3,000 faith communities all over the US may preach or hold educational events on Valentine’s Day weekend. What a wonderful Valentine for the planet. The message will be climate justice and loving God’s creation and will reach more than one million people of faith.
“The Preach-In is our most popular event of the year, hands down,” said organizer Andree Duggan of national IPL. “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.
And if you need more time, NCIPL includes from Valentine’s Day to Earth Day in the Preach-In activities. Help us make NC a better place for everyone to live.
