The Lutherans are Back with a Weekend of Witnessing
By Mary-Devon Dupuy
Rarely, New Orleanians spot groups of young people roaming the streets with absolutely no intentions of finding alcohol. It’s that time of year again; and the Lutherans are back with their matching t-shirts. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America hosts an annual youth trip to New Orleans, and they’ll be bearing witness this year until July 22.
ELCA congregations from all over the country fly down to New Orleans to bring the good book to the Crescent City. This year, they’re staying from July 18-July 22.
The petite proselytizers didn’t bring their fake id’s, but they didn’t bring their fire and brimstone sandwich boards, either. The focus of their mission is mostly charity-oriented.
Their annual trip is called “The Gathering,” and there is a ratio of one adult leader for every five youths. This year’s theme is “Citizens with the Saints,” and the ECLA’s primary goals are to spread discipleship, peacemaking, and justice with the New Orleans community. On “Justice Day,” they’ll be engaging with locals on issues like affordable housing, community care, cultural literacy, and environmental sustainability.
You may have spotted them yesterday, performing the Macarena for all of Champion Square. Although their dance moves are decidedly outdated, they’ll argue that their message is always current. If you’re interested in checking out their merch, you can find Gathering Communion Ware for a meager $110 on their site.
