Monday, December 1 – Sunday, December 7, Social Media Actions
Sunday, December 7, Vigils
Each evening from December 1-7, households and communities around the world will light a candle, a chalice, or a solar lamp and pray, meditate, or offer an invocation for a climate agreement. Then we’ll take a photo and post it on Facebook or Twitter with our hopes for the future and the tags #LightForLima and #Commit2Respond.
On the evening of Sunday, December 7, people around the world from diverse faith and spiritual communities will gather for vigils. Take action: join or organize a vigil!
