Care For Creation: A Rally for the Earth!
September 18, 2022 @ 3:00 pm – 4:15 pm
Climate change is now causing great tumult and devastation all over the world. As such the Greater Springfield Interfaith Association (GSIA) is gathering voices from various faith communities and organizations whose sacred creeds, teachings, mission statements and scientific understanding will speak to the gravitas of how we need to deal with this as a world community, locally and globally.
Our intent is to gather all people of good-will together in order to honor and rally for the earth as a mixture of faith communities, private and public organizations that are working alongside one another to promote this. In accord with our values of the Greater Springfield Interfaith Association, this event is offered not as a protest but a rally that honors inclusivity, interconnectedness and positivity in order for us to respond and act with greater care for our earth.
Speakers will include members from the Greater Springfield Interfaith Association, Faith Coalition for the Common Good, Faith in Place, Springfield Dominicans, Sierra Club Illinois Chapter and others.
We encourage participants to bring signs that affirm the earth, call for positive action and anything else that speaks to the interconnectedness of all living things on the planet. This is a RAIN OR SHINE event so be prepared to stand or sit, remain cool/warm and hydrated.
