November 30 is the World Day of Cities for Life/Cities against the Death Penalty. On this date, cities across the world mobilize to renounce the death penalty and work for a more civil form of justice. Congregations are invited to light their worship space as a sign of solidarity on the evening of November 30. A representative of each Congregation will be presented with a candle at the prayer service to take back to their faith community.
