Spring for Change: a Season of Sacred Activism — from the evening of Sunday, March 19 (the night before the Spring Equinox on Monday, March 20th!) through May 22nd (International Day for Biodiversity) — is an invitation to the Unitarian Universalist faith community to embody the transformational, regenerative power of Spring through sacred activism for Earth and all our relations.
Together, we will get active in our faith communities, our spiritual practices, and our relationships to the ecosystems we are home to. We will practice Earthcare by facing the facts and forecasts of our climate and ecological crises with courage, moral clarity, and a commitment to justice, equity and compassion.
This season ahead, join us for –
World Water Day Concert with Aly Halpert- Sunday, March 19, 8pm EST/7pm MST/6pm CT/5pm PST
Earth Day Service- Thursday, April 20, 8pm EST/7pm MST/ 6pm CT/5pm PST

UU Young Adult for Climate Justice Movement Workshops
UU Ministry for Earth is preparing for the year ahead! In October, we are excited to announce a series of upcoming programs and save the dates, share our new annual report and program calendar, and offer opportunities for embodiment, empowerment, and engagement to pursue climate justice.
As our new board chair, Rev. Anastassia Zinke reminds us, partnership, kindness, and intentionality for transformation are at the heart of our cause. Together, we can imagine and nourish a ministry that can be the best partner for the moment and our Unitarian Universalist movement.
The 8th Principle Learning Community and the UU BIPOC Caucus for Climate Justice invite you an exciting event:
8th Principle Meets 7th Principle: Environmental and Climate Justice in Unitarian Universalist Congregations
Wednesday, September 14, 2022, 7 pm to 9:30 pm EST/6pm to 8:30pm CST/5pm to 7:30pm MST/ 4pm to 6:30pm PST
What does our Unitarian Universalist faith call us to do at this moment in our nation’s history? What happens when the 8th Principle and the 7th Principle come together? Join us to learn about ideas and sources to support and strengthen local UU congregations’ call to environmental, climate and racial justice? A broad range of UU groups working on climate justice will speak.
Please invite people from your congregations. Advanced registration is required for this meeting.
A special episode of the Voices of Unitarian Universalism talk show from last fall- “Uniting the 7th and 8th Principles.” In the broadcast, Dr. Paula Cole Jones and former UU Ministry for Earth Co-Director Aly Tharp discuss the unification of the 7th and 8th principle– and how the climate crisis and racial justice work intersect.
Do you love to sing? If so, please join the Spring for Change Virtual Choir!
