Earth Day Sunday Creation Care Candlelight Vigil

21 Apr 2013

On April 21 — the Sunday preceding Earth Day — the Western North Carolina Alliance will take part in an interfaith gathering of congregations from across the region.

The Care of Creation Candlelight Vigil will be from 7-8 p.m. in downtown Asheville’s Pritchard Park.

We invite the community to join people of faith from across WNC as we:

Celebrate God’s gift of creation
Share our gratitude and appreciation for earth
Grieve for the damage we are causing to creation and our neighbors
Reflect on our responsibility to our children and future generations
Resolve to bring our hope and faith into action
The program will include music and reflections from local faith leaders. The event is sponsored by Western North Carolina Green Congregations in unity with the Climate Convergence in Raleigh. On April 20-21, thousands of people from all walks of life will converge in our state’s capitol to demonstrate the need for sane and ​substantive discourse on the ​challenges caused by ​climate change.
