Please light a candle in your window every Monday evening this winter. You will be joining a community from over 345 organizations across the province to keep vigil for those people, plants, and animals that have lost their lives in heat domes, wildfires floods and mud slides this year.
Take a moment to honor the grief and eco-anxiety that lurks in many of our hearts.
‘We know that the whole creation has been groaning in labour pains until not and not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly while we wait for adoption, the redemption of our bodies.’(Romans 822-23)
And then let your light to shine. “For in hope we were saved” (Romans 8:24) Show your neighbours (and our politicians) that we hope for a better future.
Turn that hope into action. By lighting a candle together, we will be lighting up the need for climate action.
