Earth Day Sunday
The Bible is full of beautiful language and theology for celebrating God's Creation. Yet sometimes, in the rhythm of the liturgical year, it can be challenging to find a specific time to focus as a church community on the theme of Creation. Earth Day Sunday provides just such an opportunity.
About Our Work
Since 1970, communities have taken one day each year to be especially mindful of the environment. Each year, the National Council of Churches Eco-Justice Working Group focuses on a particular environmental theme and highlights a number of ways individuals and congregations can celebrate and protect God's Creation. We hope these ideas inspire further thoughts, conversations, and actions in answering God's call to be faithful stewards of Creation.
