More than 100 individuals came together on Monday evening at the Edmonds United Methodist Church to call on the world leaders currently meeting at the Paris Climate Summit to find the courage and strength to effectively address global climate change.
Sponsored by Interfaith Climate Action, a recently-formed ecumenical group comprised of individuals concerned about climate issues, the evening included songs, music, prayer and remarks by local church leaders calling for meaningful action at all levels to address climate issues.
After the opening session, the group lit the streets of Edmonds with a candlelight procession through downtown to Centennial Square where Mayor Dave Earling addressed the crowd. In his remarks Earling expressed his strong support, praising the numerous positive actions being taken by the government and citizens of Edmonds to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, our carbon footprint, and promote green energy.
