[Episcopal Public Policy Network policy alert] In his new video, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry reminds us to pray, fast and act this Advent and Christmas, in support of good policies that provide opportunities for and respect the dignity of people struggling with poverty.

This month, we focus on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, which aim to end poverty and hunger, reduce inequalities, ensure quality education, create opportunities for decent work, care for creation, and promote a peaceful and just global community.

During the Advent and Christmas season, we focus on the praying aspect of this campaign, and encourage all to pray for each of the SDGs using the resource below.

On Dec. 21, join the EPPN and presiding bishops of the Episcopal Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in American as we pray, fact and act. Share on social media using #PrayFastAct and @TheEPPN. On the 21st, post a picture of a dinner place setting with the reason you are fasting.

Read the one-pager on the Sustainable Development Goals.

Pray for each of the goals using these prayers from the World Council of Churches.
