At PA IPL, we believe that policy is a covenant with the future. We see household and congregational action as important spiritual discipline, and as illustrations of the possible.  We know, too, that more is needed and that action is possible at local, state, and national levels.

In these calls and beyond, we focus attention on the moral implications of climate change and energy policy.  We are committed to conversations that are radically nonpartisan, and that invite everyone into bold and necessary action.
