#EarthlineRibbon - Sharing Hopes, Commitments, and Calls to Action

Inspired by the Climate Ribbon Project, the Dallas and Ft. Worth networks of Interfaith Power & Light asked Earth Day Texas 2016 participants to share a message of hope, a call to action, or a commitment for the Earth as an #EarthlineRibbon. The project was particularly attractive to children who came by, but plenty of adults participated as well. Spaced out over coming months, we will share each inspiring message in this space.

The Earthline early on Saturday, April 23, 2016. Sadly the photographer belatedly discovered that he had failed in his attempt to capture the entire display after it had been filled up.

Midway Hills Christian Church in Dallas is hosting Dallas Interfaith Power & Light for a prayer vigil in support of the #COP21 climate negotiations in Paris. This round of talks begins on November 30 and will bring together heads of state and other stakeholders, in an attempt to finalize a binding international agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to support the fossil fuel transitions of developing nations. We just want to pray for their success, and to consider what role we can play in implementation.

or come early to join a potluck vegetarian dinner at 6:00 PM

On Friday, June 26, 7:00 PM, come out to the Bahá'í Center of Irving to learn about

  • Bahá'í perspectives on climate change,
  • responses from other faith communities – especially, Pope Francis's encyclical, and

Climate change is the greatest threat to human peace and prosperity. Together, we can do something about it.
