Even if you can’t gather with others on September 20, what are you rallying for when you engage in climate action?  It could be a place, person, bible text, conviction, group, nation, species, ecosystem, emotion, aspiration. You name it!

Take or find a photo of something that represents, however abstractly you like, who/what/where you are rallying for.

Your comment and church photo will be published on this page.

We are all rallying for God’s beautiful Earth.  But what is one specific reason that you are rallying?  It could be a place, person, group, nation, species, ecosystem, Bible verse, faith statement, emotion, aspiration. You name it.

And we mean rallying in its broadest sense. You may not be able to gather on September 20, but whenever and wherever you do something for the sake of God’s Earth, who/what/where are you doing it for?

In the lead up to the physical rallies of the September 20 Global #ClimateStrike, we want to flood social media with images of Common Grace members sharing why it’s important to them, to rally.

On the day we want hundreds more images of all of us, wherever we are, rallying for God’s Earth.  As individuals, families, groups or congregations.

How do I take my photo?

Take or find a photo of something that represents, however abstractly you like, who/what/where you are rallying for.

If you're using your phone to take the photo, landscape orientation will work best (though you'll also be able to rotate it before posting). If you want you can also take a photo with a few people, and share it together. Then, write who/what/where you are rallying for, add it to this website and share it on your social media.

“I sing with environmental activist choir, Ecopella and 25 of us will be rallying and singing in the Sydney Domain at the Global Strike for the Climate to call our politicians to wake up to the reality of climate change and to move away from fossil fuel extraction especially coal mining and fracking with it’s devastating effects on the earth, fauna species, rural communities, indigenous sacred sites and vulnerable peoples around the world. It is an imperative in this escalating climate crisis that all of us work together to turn the tide.”

“I’m rallying for First Peoples of this nation, and First Peoples in the Pacific. I’m rallying especially for our human family in places like Tuvalu and Kiribati where home is being lost forever, but I’m also rallying for our non-human family. I rally for the Ocean, for the Land, the rivers, the creeks, the forests, the bush and the animals which are part of the only home we will ever have.”

“The furthest corners of the earth by action close to home. I want my nieces and nephews to inherit a planet with glaciers rather than flooded oceans. Im trying to avoid micro plastics and leave remote places alone to avoid carbon footprints caused by plane trips. I acknowledge the call by God to be a steward of the earth.”
