Joining with Voices of Faith

light for lima


World leaders will come together in Lima, Peru this December for the UN Climate Change Conference to work to establish the fundamentals of a strong, global agreement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions – an agreement that hopefully will then be finalized in Paris in 2015.

As humanity finally begins to grapple with this existential crisis, we must ensure that our actions are grounded in the values held by all faiths – respect for the natural environment, a passion for justice for the vulnerable, and a deep love for one another. With our lights we can guide the way.

Candlelight interfaith vigil of prayer, witness, song, and meditation
Sunday, December 7 at 4pm
Union Square

At the vigil, representatives of different faith communities will offer one- or two-sentence prayers while lighting their candles (or solar lanterns). These lights will be symbols of our hope that the negotiations in Lima will be carried out in a spirit of love, compassion, and caring.

The 14th Street Y will be participating.  If you would like to join us, please contact
