For Texas Interfaith Power and Light (TXIPL), every day is Earth Day! Every day is a day to celebrate the natural wonders of the planet we share, and to increase awareness of the impact our actions have on God’s creation. But April 22 is especially significant because it’s Earth Day, a day to unite as members of the global community in order to celebrate the Earth and remember our obligation to protect it.
Did you know? Nearly 200 countries across the globe are expected to participate in Earth Day activities this year. TXIPL and its local affiliates will be joining the global community by participating in Earth Day events around the state:
In Austin, the Interfaith Environmental Network will be attending the Austin Earth Day Festival, where they will host a workshop and presentation on the launch of their new climate manual for religious congregations. Information about the event can be found here.
In Dallas, Dallas IPL will be participating in the Oak Cliff Earth Day Festival where there will be shows, information sessions, and all kinds of fun for all. An informational booth will be set up to learn more about the local chapter. For more information contact Genny Rowley.
In Fort Worth, Fort Worth IPL will have booth space at the free, solar powered Fort Worth Prairie Fest on April 27th, which offers unique outdoor adventures for children and families along with tasty food and live music. Learn more on Facebook or contact Rev. Paul John Roach for more information.
