The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.

Psalm 24:1

Saturday 27th March, is the date for the WWF’s annual ‘Earth Hour’. WWF say:

Earth Hour is a global movement, bringing millions together across the world to call for greater action to protect our amazing planet. Last year a record 178 countries took part – a number that rises every year. From the Sydney Opera House and the Eiffel Tower to Buckingham Palace and Edinburgh Castle, cities, towns and communities like yours across the world will switch out their lights and come together for an hour, to join a global show of support for action on climate.

Sign up, switch out your lights and show you want action on climate change and to help protect our beautiful planet. Find out more at www.wwf.org.uk/earthhour

You can also find out more at https://www.earthhour.org/take-part

The idea is that you turn off the lights – and other technology too, if you like – in your home at 8.30pm for one hour, to call attention to climate change and think about what other actions you could take to help the world around you.

Click here for the liturgy from the Church of England that you may wish to use to reflect on the Earth, the environment and our role as God’s people in creating a sustainable and just future for all people on the earth.

Alternatively you may like to listen to a whole album of worship songs on the themes of Creation, Ecology and Christian hope – Doxecology is available at www.resoundworship.org/projects/doxecology

If you can’t do it at 8.30, you can start earlier or later – whatever works for you.
