Coming to a pulpit near you?
A national preach-in on climate change is scheduled for February 14-16, when organizers say that “thousands of faith leaders will join together in preaching and teaching about climate change and love of Creation.”
It is being organized by Interfaith Power & Light, which says its mission is to be “faithful stewards of Creation by responding to global warming through the promotion of energy conservation, energy efficiency, and renewable energy.”
The organization, which is mobilizing a religious response to global warming in 39 states, representing over 14,000 congregations, began in 1998 as Episcopal Power & Light, later joining other faith partners to become California Power & Light, which “developed a successful organizational model that engaged hundreds of congregations, educated thousands of people of faith about the moral and ethical mandate to address global warming . . .”
