The Sacred Space Between Us
An On-Line Earth Hour Celebration Supporting PA IPL, the Earth and One Another
March 28 from 7:45 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Register now (free)

Come join Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light’s friends and supporters from all over the state as we fill our social distance with love for the earth and each other. This internet-based gathering over Zoom will include live music, earth prayer and reflection culminating with a candle-lit count down to Earth Hour.

At 8:30 participants may exit for unplugged Earth Hour observances in their own homes, or may choose to remain in our virtual gathering space to participate in 45 minutes of practices that will take us through a spiral of Active Hope from The Work That Reconnects. There’s a bit more about Active Hope and The Work That Reconnects (with some additional links) in our Thanksgiving 2019 note.

This social media event replaces several in-person Earth Hour benefits for PA IPL throughout the state.  We invite those who can to offer their financial support by making a donation when you register.

For more information contact us.

How to tune in
After you register, we’ll send you confirmation email.  The day before, you’ll get a link for the Zoom conference. Have a candle ready as we’ll shut off our lights, and countdown to a candle lit Earth Hour, which begins at 8:30 p.m. Some of us will power down our computers and other grid-based electronics and spend the rest of Earth Hour in candle-light and heart-light in the sacredness of our own homes.  Others will remain in our virtual gathering space to participate in 45 minutes of practices that will take us through a spiral of Active Hope from The Work That Reconnects.

Tips for marking Earth Hour offline:

  • Take a quiet or music-filled candle-lit walk outside with one or two others, honoring that loving social distance of 6 feet between people.  If you can be in a dark place, and the night is clear, pause to look up at the sky more than once.
  • If your household is multi-human-ed and multi-aged (or more playful than mobile) ask Google about Shadow Buff, Bag of Nouns, Forehead Detective, and Fictionary to get you started.
