Hold local observances – prayers, services, and/or a sound off. What’s a soundoff?

From the Green Faith website:
On Sept. 21 at 1:00 pm “sound off” outdoors in support of climate action for 5 minutes & 50 seconds.

Why 5 minutes 50 seconds?  That’s 350 seconds – the highest number of parts per  million of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere that’s needed for a stable climate.  We’re currently close to 400 ppm.  How to sound off?  Ring your bells (churches), sound a shofar publicly (synagogues), offer a public call to prayer (mosques), ring the meditation gong, bell or han (sanghas), chant a mantra (Hindu temples), or conduct an outdoor walking prayer/meditation – or another outdoor observance that you design.”
