NHS@PHS: April 22, 2020 marks 50 years of Earth Day.
#EarthDay2020 is being marked by two crises
One is the #COVID-19 pandemic. The other is a slowly building disaster for our #climate.
We can, will and must solve both challenges. The world was not prepared for the novel #coronavirus. But we still have time to prepare — in every part of the world — for the #climatecrisis.
This pandemic will not silence our voices. Instead, it reminds us of what’s at stake for the #planet.
And although it is keeping us apart, it is also bringing us together to take on the fight for our common home. Will you join us? Tune in to Earth Day Live, https://www.earthday.org/earth-day-live, April 22-24 to watch, discuss and participate in a livestream featuring stories, performances and opportunities for digital collective action.
Lord, grant us the wisdom to care for the earth and till it.
Help us to act now for the good of future generations and all your creatures.
Help us to become instruments of a new creation,
Founded on the covenant of your love.
