Over the weekend of September 15-17, 2017, pastors, rabbis, imams, and other clergy in congregations across Maryland will be raising up Creation care and climate change as part of their sermons at weekly services and through other learning programs.
Through a partnership between the Chesapeake Climate Action Network and Interfaith Power & Light (MD.DC.NoVA), congregations will be inviting their communities to better care for Creation: at home, in our congregations, and in Annapolis.
Congregations will also have the opportunity to speak out for the Maryland Clean Energy Jobs Initiative (MCEJI). MCEJI will expand and strengthen Maryland’s clean energy law (Renewable Portfolio Standard, or RPS). This is a powerful opportunity to support clean energy in our state, create good jobs, and do our part to reduce carbon pollution.
