STATE COLLEGE – double launch #EachGeneration and Central PA IPL Circuit Riders

January 9, 2018 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

PA IPL supporters in Centre, Huntingdon, and Blair Counties are joining forces to get to know one another, encourage one another, pray together,  learn of the activities of PA IPL, build community, and make common cause around caring for our Common Home and all who inhabit it.  We’re calling it the Central PA IPL Circuit Riders, as we’ll rotate amongst faith communities and institutions, so everyone gets a chance to see new places and people… and the chance to share familiar ones.

Pennsylvania Interfaith Power & Light (PA IPL) invites you to the first monthly meeting of  the Central PA IPL Circuit Riders. on Tuesday evening, January 9 at Trinity Lutheran Church from 7 to 8:30 p.m. for a presentation on the Justice for #EachGeneration  initiative — an inter-religious effort launched by the United Church of Christ Council for Climate Justice to support the 21 young people — including several with Pennsylvania ties — who are currently suing the federal government, seeking accountability and action for the damage done to our climate.  READ MORE, link to supports, see a video, and get a one-pager.

The evening’s presentation will be one of what is hoped to be 1,000 Sermons  preached or presentations given in support of these 10-21 year olds before the hoped for February 5 hearing of the case in U.S. District Court of Oregon…. we hope it will give you ideas and inspire you to create a sermon or study opportunity in your own faith community.  We’d love to share it here on our website, where it can go on to inspire others!   We’ll have some resources to share.

Find us in the Peace Room at Trinity Lutheran Church in State College.  It is not hard to find — just bear to your left after coming in the main entrance. Directions.

A Call for Sermons in Solidarity with Youth Seeking Justice

Twenty-one youth have taken our federal government to court in demanding accountability and action in response to the damage done to our climate and the immense impact this damage has on their generation. Ultimately, the case brought by the youth is about seeking justice for #EachGeneration. To further the compelling and inspiring efforts of the youth, a range of faith organizations have initiated a call for more than a thousand sermons to be preached in solidarity with them. To pledge a commitment to deliver a sermon, visit www.eachgeneration.org. Youth are especially encouraged to preach.
