STATE COLLEGE — Earth Hour Prayer and Readings
March 27, 2019 @ 7:30 PM - 8:15 PMFree
Earth Hour 2019 at PA IPL member congregation Trinity Lutheran Church at about 7:30 PM on March 27, following Holden Prayer Service.
Their invitation generously states “any PA IPL folks who would like to attend are most welcome to come for one of Pastor Ron’s Lenten suppers at 6 PM and then stay for the Holden Prayer Service at 7 PM.” (Pastor Ron ministers from the kitchen as well as he does from the pulpit!)
Earth Hour started in 2007 as a simple observance of turning the lights off for an hour to show awareness of the negative effects human activities are having on our planet. While lights-out events remain central to the celebration of Earth Hour, the scope of the event has broadened as with the Connect to Earth theme for 2019 – something Trinity folks did with the Care of Creation hike on March 17.
The lights-out celebration officially happens from 8:30 to 9:30 PM on March 30 this year, but lots of small observances take place at various locations during the weeks immediately before and after the formal date and time.
Trinity Lutheran will be observing Earth Hour in a very brief session of prayer and readings starting at about 7:30 PM after the conclusion of the Holden Prayer Service on Wednesday, March 27. We will be joined by friends from Good Shepherd Catholic Church. Others are warmly welcomed.
