The UUA and UU Ministry for the Earth are working together to make worship and other resources available for Earth Day 2010. Now is a great time to start planning your Earth Day service. This year Earth Day is April 22nd. You are invited to celebrate any time during this week or the weekends on either side.
The UU Ministry for the Earth requests…
Whatever activities you plan, please make sure you: (1) register your congregation’s Earth Day event or worship so we can share with you how many congregations are getting involved and what they’re doing; (2) send us photos; and (3) tell us how your events and services go! We will feature stories about Earth Day on the UUMFE website and in upcoming newsletters, as well as on the UUA’s website and the Inspired Faith, Effective Action blog.
Hopefully each of our congregations have at least a small group working on green issues and climate change. If yours does, take this opportunity to thank them! The resources provided this year include a number of template certificates you may present to your eco-heroes.

Growth wise, thanking people for their work and ministry is key. If we thanked people who volunteer as loudly as we beg for help, collectively we’d be in much better shape. This Earth Day make sure your thank everyone involved in your green efforts.
