Event description

Description

We are looking forward to our fourth annual advocacy gathering; we will begin the day with Affirmation of Baptism. Walking Wet is all about whom God has called us to be as He claims us in the waters of baptism. Walking Wet means we know where we belong and to whom we belong. Walking Wet is to know without a doubt that through the waters of baptism, God promises to always love us, to forgive us, to support us, and to always be by our side. Walking Wet is about confidence and trust. Walking Wet implies we are part of a large group, brothers and sisters in Christ. Walking Wet gives us a new perspective from which to love and serve our neighbor.

Our Keynote Speaker will be Rev. Amy Reumann, ELCA Director of Advocacy

Following our Keynote, Bishop Gordy will take us on a tour of the new Synod Office.

Lunch will be provided. Following lunch, you will have the opportunity to attend two out of five workshops. Topics will include:

  • Care for Creation by Georgia Interfaith Power and Light,
  • Migration by Lutheran Services of Georgia and Jordan Slappey,
  • Congregational Advocacy by Hilton Austin, Dawn Bennett, and Catherine Strate
  • The Truth about Medicaid Expansion by Pastor Matt Steinhauer.
  • Criminal Justice Reform by Southern Poverty Law Center

We look forward to a great day; and we hope you will be able to join us.
