Next week Commit2Respond is joining OurVoices for #LightForLima, a global, multi-faith prayer vigil, at the invitation of endorser group GreenFaith. December 1-12, 2014 is the next opportunity to call on our leaders for climate justice. At the annual United Nations Climate Change Conference, held this year in Lima, Peru, leaders will establish the fundamentals of an agreement to be honed over the coming year and signed in Paris next December.
Each evening from December 1-7, households and communities around the world will light a candle, a chalice, or a solar lamp and pray, meditate, or offer an invocation for a climate agreement. Then we’ll take a photo and post it on Facebook or Twitter with our hopes for the future and the tags #LightForLima and #Commit2Respond.
On the evening of Sunday, December 7, people around the world from diverse faith and spiritual communities will gather for vigils. Take action: join or organize a vigil!
Time is running out for a strong climate agreement. World leaders in Lima need to know that people of all faiths and spiritualities are holding them in our thoughts, meditations, and prayers—supporting their efforts to reach an agreement and bearing witness to their decisions. Our lights will guide the way.
