||2012 ELCA Youth Gathering, citizens with the saints|
July 18–22, 2012, New Orleans, Louisiana
Gather again, in New Orleans, not to cheer on the Saints football team, but to stand with the saints of God in that place: the young and the old, the privileged and the uninvited, the lonely and the claimed, the powerful and the shamed, the weak and the strong, those who have built new homes and those still struggling to rebuild.
Please join us in the summer of 2012 and be a part of God bringing in God’s New Creation through the church.
