LAMPa Lutheran Day in the Capitol (Harrisburg, PA)
April 27, 2023
Starting at Trinity Lutheran Church, 2000 Chestnut St., Camp Hill

Join advocates from across Pennsylvania for inspiration, learning and advocacy. Taking Micah 6:8 as as tarting point, we will focus on how we as Lutheran Christians understand our call to live together as God’s faithful people and to strive for justice and peace in the context of today’s debates over the role of faith in public life. We will be prepared to act on that call, with workshops that connect our ministries of service to opportunities to advocate with policymakers on issues from hunger to housing, creation care and more.
