Inviting your congregants to all view the same film is a great way to spark discussion and inspire your congregation to take action as part of your Faith Climate Action Week activities.
Kiss the Ground Documentary Inspires Action to Regenerate the World’s Soils.
DVD $19.95 + shipping through IPL.
“Kiss the Ground” is a new film how about how regenerating the world’s soils has the potential to rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems, and create abundant food supplies. This film explains why transitioning to regenerative agriculture could be key in rehabilitating the planet, while simultaneously invigorating a new sense of hope and inspiration in viewers.
This film was chosen as the featured film of Interfaith Power & Light’s Faith Climate Action Week, April 16-25, 2021. Our theme this year was Sacred Ground: Cultivating Connections between our Food, our Faith, and the Climate. Learn more about the week here.
Many congregations across the nation promoted the film through IPL’s free online viewing opportunity in April to their congregants and conducted discussion sessions. If you missed that opportunity you can still purchase the DVD from IPL and use the free screening kit to conduct a discussion with your congregation – it’s a subject worth digging into any time of year!

Panelists also included: Pastor Reshorna Fitzpatrick of Stone Temple Baptist Missionary Church in Chicago who told us about the Stone Temple Peace Garden collaboration with Chicago Sinai Congregation, and Veronica Kyle, the Statewide Outreach Director of IPL affiliate Faith in Place. Veronica has been instrumental in supporting several successful “congregational supported agriculture” farms in the Chicago area serving food insecure neighborhoods.
