Each year Lutheran Advocacy Ministry in Pennsylvania (LAMPa) gathers members for a lobby-and-learning day at the Capitol in Harrisburg on a particular issue.  This year, it’s climate change.  LAMPa’s advocacy and workshop day will be April 18 (Learn more here – anyone of any faith tradition is welcome to register, but recognize ahead of time that examples will be chosen for Lutherans).

The day before their learning day,  they gather for a less formal faith-and-learning event. This year LAMPa is teaming up with PA IPL and the national ELCA “glocal event team” for celebration and more.  Click the image for a PDF poster that will tell you more about the add-on afternoon canoe trip (with DCNR officials) or hike, too.
