Climate Justice Month Candle Lightings

Climate Justice Month spans from World Water Day (March 22) to Earth Day (April 22). There are four or five Sundays in each month.  

First Sunday – water - blue



We light this candle on the first Sunday of Climate Justice Month, for the sacred element of water, in recognition that water is life. It was in water that life on Mother Earth first formed. And where clean water flows life continues to flourish today.  Water is the womb of creation. A moment of silent gratitude for water….

Second Sunday – fire - red



We light this candle on the second Sunday of Climate Justice Month, for the sacred element of fire. The Promethean myth recognizes that it is fire that allowed humanity to survive and thrive. Whether burning wood, oil, gas, or wax, the gift of fire unleashes the life-giving energy of the sun. A moment of gratitude for fire….

Third Sunday – air – yellow



We begin the third week of Climate Justice Month by lighting a candle for the sacred element of air. Both the Chinese word qi and the Sanskrit word prana mean both breath and life force. In the Hebrew scriptures, God gave Adam life by breathing it into him. Each of our lives begins with an inhalation. A moment of gratitude for air….

Third Sunday – earth – green



We begin the fourth week of Climate Justice Month by lighting a candle for the sacred element of earth. Terra Firma.  The literal ground of our being on this planet. It is earth that provides the nutrients that becomes our food that becomes us.  From earth our bodies grow. And to earth we will return when our days are done. A moment of gratitude for earth….
