Climate change threatens humanity with severe environmental, social and moral consequences. We are called to practice what we know through our faith—to sustain life and to show compassion. What we do will make all the difference in the world.
TN Interfaith Power & Light is the state affiliate of a network of faith communities working across the U.S., offering a spiritual response to climate change. Our mutual efforts will protect our climate through upholding the sacredness of life, defending those most vulnerable to the many impacts of climate change, and advocating for effective climate protection policies.
TN-IPL works with other Tennessee organizational partners to move the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) to a 1% annually-compounded energy efficiency target. Energy efficiency, along with its many other benefits, reduces energy consumption and carbon emissions.
We invite you to join the growing number of faithful people in Tennessee and across the nation who address the climate crisis through understanding, practice, and outreach. A membership form is available from TennIPL@gmail.com. TN-IPL has no dues at this time. We want your spiritual energy and collaboration. [Note from Carol: GINI is already an affiliate of TN-IPL. But TN-IPL would benefit by having individual, team, and faith groups memberships as well. Please encourage members of your faith community to join.]
Through our faith community network, you can learn what other TN faith groups are doing to become more sustainable and advance climate protection policies. We welcome you to share what is working within your community and what you have learned.
TN IPL intends to start quarterly climate vigils in cities across Tennessee in 2013. Send an e-mail to TennIPL@gmail.com to join TN-IPL’s monthly conference call to help make this happen so that we can raise our voices for climate protection. What the world needs now is a change of heart and the opening of minds. Help us make it happen.
