Faith leaders from across the U.S. and Canada are preaching on global climate change as a moral issue.
- If you are a religious leader, we encourage you to sign Earth Day Network’s Global Warming in the Pulpit Pledge , and mark your commitment to preach on global warming.
- Lay leaders can join this movement by inviting your faith leader to sign the Pledge.
If you want to inspire the world with your Earth Day sermon, send us the video of your religious service and we will post it on Earth Day Television. For more information on how to do this, email communications [at] earthday.net.

The National Campus Day of Prayer and Reflection on Global Warming
The National Campus Day of Prayer and Reflection on Global Warming is bringing people of all faiths from the different university communities across the U.S. to consider how their tradition speaks to the pressing issue of global warming, and to act as a springboard religious communities to become involved in action to fight global climate change. The National Campus Day of Prayer and Reflection is sponsored by Stanford Memorial Chapel at Stanford University, and Rockefeller Memorial Chapel and the Religion and the Environment Initiative at the University of Chicago.
