Earth Hour Saturday 27th March 8.30-9.30pm
2021 presents an unmissable opportunity. In 2021, world leaders will come together during key global conferences and forums (most importantly in Glasgow in November at the COP26) to set the environmental agenda for the next decade and beyond. Crucial political decisions will be made on climate action, nature, and sustainable development –- decisions that will directly affect the fate of humanity and our planet for years to come.
This Saturday evening switch off your lights, light a candle, say the prayer below and with millions around the world give the Earth a chance to breathe; as we all save an hour’s worth of resources. Pray also for COP26 that its outcomes will benefit Creation.
Creator God, this earth is beautiful and fragile. Forgive our confusion and inaction as we confront the challenges of climate change. In the light of your truth, seen so clearly in the life and teachings of Jesus, help us to re-examine ourselves and our lifestyle choices and see clearly the implications of how we live, on all that sustains life on earth. May we follow your lead in caring for every aspect of this precious world, which you made and love. Inspire us now to work together, as your people, to change priorities in the way we live so that we build a fair and safe world for all your creation and for future generations. We ask this through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen
