In our ongoing efforts to take concrete actions towards Engaging God’s
World as part of our diocesan vision, Bishop Anna is inviting the
diocese to join her in taking part in a BC-wide initiative.
#Candles4Climate is organized by the BC Climate Emergency
Campaign and arises out of a public call to action of over 300
organizations across British Columbia earlier this year. In a letter to the
provincial government, these groups called for the immediate
implementation of ten climate emergency actions. To date, none of
these actions have been taken by the government.
Bishop Anna and Rabbi Harry Brechner from Congregation
Emanu-El, Victoria will hold a vigil next Monday, December 13 at
5:00 p.m. outside Grace Lore’s constituency office in Victoria to pray
for the victims of this year’s fires and floods, and to call on the
government to take immediate action.
Bishop Anna invites your congregation to join the campaign by
organizing a Monday vigil outside your MLA’s constituency office, or
to join her and Rabbi Harry at the constituency office at 1084 Fort
Street, Victoria, on December 13. You can also take part by lighting a
candle each Monday evening at 8:00 p.m. in your home.
