Happy Summer Solstice!

Over the past couple days, on June 20 and 21, we celebrated the summer solstice! During these days, the Sun travels along its northernmost path in the sky, marking the longest day of the year and the official beginning of the summer season.

Many different faith communities around the world celebrate the summer solstice as the return of warmth and a time of renewed energy and life. At Virginia Interfaith Power and Light, we use this time to continue caring for and appreciating Creation; and, to renew our commitments to protect and advocate for our shared home on this Earth.
