CALL FOR STRONG ACTION BY WORLD GOVERNMENTS ON CLIMATE CHANGE
VOICES OF FAITH CANDLELIGHT VIGIL 
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 7 at 4:00 PM
UNION SQUARE
Vigils will be taking place in Washington, London, Sydney, and around the world.Learn More.

World leaders will be meeting in Lima, Peru, on December 1-12, for the UN Climate Change Conference (COP20/CMP10). They’ll be working to establish the fundamentals of a strong, global agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions – 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. As they start their work, join us in a vigil calling for meaningful progress toward a world safe from climate change.

Please send a representative to light a candle on behalf of your community or congregation. The candle is a symbol of hope that the negotiations in Lima will be carried out in a spirit of love, compassion, and caring.  To sign up to represent your faith community, please contact n.lorence2013@gmail.com andcatherineskopic@yahoo.com

Spread the word on facebook and announce this vigil in your newsletter and at your services.
