If not, what are the barriers?
LAMPa often can tailor learning and advocacy materials connected to your plans for the churchwide day of service, making it a day of "God's work. Our hands. Our voices." Knowing this, would you be interested in this for the coming years?
Would you be willing to write and share a prayer, litany or reflection related to justice, peacemaking or stewardship of the earth as a resource for our common ministry?
Sharing your name, contact information, and areas of particular interest will allow LAMPa staff to contact you about issues in which you are interested as well as connect you, with your permission, with other advocates and lawmakers. Only LAMPa staff will see names. Survey responses will be shared as a summary with policy council and bishops. Contact information will not be shared or sold. THANK YOU for helping to strengthen our ministry of public witness.
