Earth Day Sunday Resources

April 22nd will be the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day

CCA has gathered some resources to support your congregation in honoring, celebrating or teaching about creation care in this season. Several congregations will offer sermons, classes or teachings on the Sunday before or just after Earth Day.  A 2020 theme “The Fierce Urgency of Now” was coordinated by Creation Justice Ministries, an ecumenical organization that carries out the creation care and environmental justice priorities of dozens of Christian denominations and communions. The theme comes from a quote by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: “We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there ‘is’ such a thing as being too late. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.”
