Jerusalem Events 

Soup Study Pray

Each Wednesday in Lent (2024) Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church in Rothsville, PA and Brickerville United Lutheran Church in Brickerville, PA organized an evening of "Soup Study Pray."  We gathered at 6 pm for soup and online interviews with friends from around the world.  We ended with evening Vespers.


Our guests from around the world share their experience of the church in different places, and explore, from a Lutheran perspective, how churches work together and with others for the wellbeing of the world and its people. Below are links to those interviews.


Feb 21, Rev. Karen Larson shared her experience traveling to Guatemala with the non-profit Tree4Hope to learn first hand about the girls' school, Hope Academy, supported through Tree4Hope.


Feb 28. Rev. Stephen Deal,  speaking from Costa Rica where he has lived for 20 years, tells us about the ELCA's AMMPARO strategy, a Lutheran response to the migration crisis in Central America. (apologies for an abrupt end to the interview)
