Again, Skene Parish Church celebrated Earth Hour with a Candlelight Service at Trinity Church
Westhill. About 40 people turned up after the Annual Stated Meeting on 29 March 2014 to, first
of all join together with Coffee and Pudding and then, celebrate an hour of praise and prayer to
celebrate God’s Creation.
Our theme, this year was footprints where we considered the impact that we have on our planet
and the interdependence of everything on it. The shape of the cross was laid out with beautiful
candles. Luminous footprints led from the entrance to the cross. At the beginning of the service, we
removed our shoes to show that we were on holy ground.
Earth Hour was explained and members of the group participated with readings, prayers and stories.
An hour of darkness,
a moment of change,
a brighter future.
