In honor of our “Be the Church: Protect the Environment” theme in worship last Sunday, I wanted to pass along these resources from our national UCC “Justice & Peace Action Network.”
Plant a Yard Sign for the Paris Accord
In response to the United States pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, General Synod passed an emergency resolution entitled “The Earth Is the Lord’s—Not Ours to Wreck.” As a tangible act of witness, churches are invited to plant yard signs that declare, “We [heart] Planet Earth. We Support the Paris Accord.” The graphic for the sign can be downloaded along with a sample press release.
“Protect the Environment” tip from Judy Hey: I recently read in a May 2017 National Geographic article that every time you turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth, you can save up to 4 gallons of water. That is more than many people around the world have in a week.
