In 1970, two Congressmen, both alarmed by disastrous consequences of an oil spill off the coast of California and other environmental catastrophes, recruited Denis Hayes to organize teach-ins on college campuses to raise awareness about the dire consequences of pollution. Earth Day was established that year.
This year, the fifty-second anniversary of Earth Day, global warming is in crisis mode. First Unitarian Church’s Seventh Principle Team with the Rev Lori Kyle will mark the anniversary by calling on us to confront the threats to the environment through Unitarian Universalism’s Seventh Principle: “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part,” hoping that this will further inspire us to work to end global warming for future generations.
