Interfaith Vigil for UN Climate Change Conference on Dec. 7



JOIN WITH OTHER VOICES FOR A VIGIL ON DECEMBER 7

Sunday, December 7 at 7:30pm



World leaders will come together in Lima, Peru this December for the UN Climate Change – an agreement that we hope will then be finalized in Paris in 2015. These leaders need to know that we're holding their work in our thoughts, meditations and prayers.
Conference (COP 20/CMP 10). They’ll be working to establish the fundamentals of a strong, global agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
As they start their work, join us in a vigil –
·       for strong action by world governments in response to the climate crisis, including meaningful progress in Lima
·       for governments to fulfill and even increase their pledges to the UN’s Green Climate Fund, which will assist poor nations in dealing with the climate crisis
·       for justice for the world’s poor, who have done the least to contribute to the climate crisis, but are most vulnerable to its effects
As citizens of the so-called First World, we recognize our responsibility for having despoiled and destabilized the global climate.  We recognize our moral responsibility to do everything we can to reverse the worst effects of our society’s wastefulness, and to work to restore creation. We also recognize our special responsibility to our brothers and sisters the world over who are already dealing with the devastating impacts of climate destabilization.
We can make a difference. As humanity finally begins to grapple with this existential crisis, we must ensure that our actions are grounded in respect for the natural environment, a passion for justice for the vulnerable, and a deep love for one another. With our lights we can guide the way.
