Prayers of the People December 13, 2009

On Sunday December 13 the Diocese of Huron and the Enviroaction Committee ask you to include an intention in your ‘Prayers of the People’ on behalf of climate change talks in Copenhagen. Today we join churches around the world by ringing church bells or beating drums 350 times* to show our solidarity with those most affected.

"We pray for our brothers and sisters around the world suffering the impact of climate injustice. We pray that the leaders of the nations may work together at the climate change negotiations in Copenhagen, so that a just, binding and science-based climate treaty may be achieved."

*Kairos says that “350 parts per million (ppm) is the upper limit for carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration in our atmosphere. Until about 200 years ago, our atmosphere contained 275 ppm of CO2, but now the concentration stands at 390 ppm. Unless we are able to rapidly reduce, we risk irreversible impacts on all of Creation”
