Earth Day Messages

Leaders of spiritual communities across Minnesota turned to themes of Earth and Nature to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day this April.  We’ve compiled some of the sermons and messages they gave here.

We welcome your submissions.  We would especially appreciate messages from speakers of Muslim, Jewish, Unitarian, Bah’ai, Buddhist, and other traditions.  Send video links, audio links, or manuscripts to  Thank you!
