“The best beloved of all things in My sight is Justice; turn not away therefrom if thou desirest Me, and neglect it not that I may confide in thee… Ponder this in thy heart; how it behoveth thee to be. Verily justice is My gift to thee and the sign of My loving-kindness. Set it then before thine eyes.”
(Baha’u’llah, The Arabic Hidden Words, #2)
“A fundamental component of resolving the climate change challenge will be the cultivation of values, attitudes and skills that give rise to just and sustainable patterns of human interaction with the environment.”
(Bahá’í International Community, “Seizing the Opportunity: Redefining the challenge of climate change”, 2008)
Dear friends and neighbors — On Tuesday evening, February 17, we invite you to join us in our home for a special devotional gathering and conversation as we, along with people of diverse faiths across the country, take part in the National Preach-in on Climate Change. Our theme will be ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP AND JUSTICE – so essential if we are to protect Earth’s climate and thus our children’s future and all of creation.
We’ll read and reflect on selected sacred writings on our theme and uplift and refresh our souls with music. We will also offer prayers as the spirit moves us. We will have post cards available to send to our Senators, joining thousands of others in pledging to do our part, and asking them to do theirs. We’ll conclude with conversation, tea and refreshments.
We’ll also say prayers for anyone in need, so if you can’t join us and would like to request prayers please call in advance (see below) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you can join us!
