For Such a Time as This: Environmental Programs

The presiding bishops of the Episcopal Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America called us to Pray, Fast, and Act each month on the 21st. This month, we answer their call by urging action to protect funding for domestic and international programs that address the health effects of environmental degradation impacting the poorest among us the most.

On August 21st, join The EPPN and the presiding bishops of The Episcopal Church and the ELCA as we: 

PRAY for our nation’s elected leaders and for all who struggle with the impacts and effects of environmental degradation that result in hunger, poverty, and death.

Almighty God, in giving us dominion over things on earth, you made us fellow workers in your creation: Give us wisdom and reverence so to use the resources of nature, that no one may suffer from our abuse of them, and that generations yet to come may continue to praise you for your bounty; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

– For the Conservation of Natural Resources, The Book of Common Prayer

Fasting Episcopal Environment

FAST to call attention to the needs and circumstances of those suffering from the impacts of air and water pollution, chemical exposure, and natural disasters. 

Share on social media using #PrayFastAct and @TheEPPN. On the 21st, post a picture of a dinner place setting with the reason you are fasting this month.

ACT by urging your elected representatives to continue funding crucial programs that care for all of creation by addressing environmental degradation and its impact around the world.
