Joy to the World: Preparing to Welcome God and One Another in Advent

  • Home of Becky and David Lockman (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Advent Retreat

Preparing for Christmas entails more than buying gifts, planning worship, and baking fruit cake—it's about making space for joy. The Rev. Ryan Kuratko will be leading an Advent Quiet Day on this topic with reflections that emerge from his work in comparative theology. The event will be spiritual, practical, and at least a bit joyful.

The retreat begins Friday evening (6:00 - 8:45 PM) with a light supper, reflection by Ryan, and shared prayer and practice. Saturday begins at 9:00 AM and continues until 3:00 PM, closing with a Eucharist. Reflections, prayers, quiet, and friendly conversation will focus on God as the source of joy, the joy we find in others and in ourselves, and living joyfully in a time of anxiety. Come enjoy some time set aside for you.

The retreat will be held at David and Becky Lockman’s house, 1241 Brittain Estates Drive, Watkinsville 30677. Cost is $15, which includes 2 meals as well as childcare on Saturday at St. Gregory's, if needed. If childcare is needed, please contact Karen Kassinger (706-549-3631) no later than Saturday, November 25. 

Registration deadline is Saturday, Nov. 25. Or you can print out a registration form and mail it in with check. All registration payments are due by Nov. 25.

Please make check out  to St. Gregory's w/ "Advent Retreat" in the memo and mail to St. Gregory's at 3195 Barnett Shoals Road, Athens, GA 30605.

We hope to see you there!

ON THE PILGRIMS' WAY: Discovering the Historic Beauty and Rich Tradition of Christianity in the British Isles

Would you like to deepen your appreciation of the Episcopal/Anglican tradition while enriching your faith? How about seeing some of the most beautiful, history-soaked places in England, with a touch of Scotland? For all English-speaking Christians, not just Episcopalians, a pilgrimage to the U.K. is a unique opportunity to connect to the roots of our faith, which came to the British Isles surprisingly early – perhaps only a century after Christ. Invite your friends and come join me as we make a pilgrimage – from the far south all the way to the Scottish border – exploring the great cathedrals, abbeys, and other sites - at least one very important pub included(!) - crucial to our inheritance of the faith Jesus “once delivered to the apostles.”

Though we'll be getting around by bus & train, not walking for days like medieval pilgrims (save for a couple hours on St. Cuthbert's Way for those who are able), we'll nonetheless treat this trip as a pilgrimage:  a chance not only to see wonderful sites & scenery, learn some fascinating history, and truly enjoy the companionship of friends, but to renew our faith, mainly through worshipping in some of these historic places, where Christians have prayed, sung, and shared the Eucharist for centuries upon centuries.

Household Rituals and Finding God in Everyday Life

  • Highpoint Episcopal Community Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We do it all the time. We open the door. We close the door. An everyday ritual that changes everything by the doing of it. Deuteronomy says to write the first commandment—the one about loving God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength—on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. It suggests that there is something innately holy about our coming and going from the house. That opening or closing a door is in and of itself a way of loving God. 

In this three-week art studio series, we will explore doorways as holy spaces. Join us on Sunday afternoons, November 5, 12, 19 from 2:00 - 3:30 in the Pop-up Studio for Practicing the Pastoral Arts. Please email Ruth Pattison (ruthpattison1@gmail.com) by Ocotber 30 to reserve your space. $45.00 for the series.

  • Create your own sacred space and time
  • Relax in God’s mysterious presence
  • Enjoy interactive small and large group discussions
  • Engage in activities such as meditation, journaling, and body prayer
  • And don’t forget music, good food, and conversation!

Westina Matthews, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor, General Theological Seminary, is an author, public speaker, retreat leader, and spiritual director whose practice reflects contemplative living through “holy listening.”

St. Mark’s Gospel Performance

Screen Shot 2017-10-16 at 1.16.19 PM.png
  • Free admission
     

  • Registration is required
     

  • Reception will follow the presentation

 

Actor Tom Bair will present an exciting storytelling performance of the entirety of The Gospel of St. Mark on Thursday, November 2 in Child Hall. Jointly sponsored by the Cathedral and the Diocese of Atlanta, the show will start at 5 p.m. and a reception will follow. Admission is free, but please register here.

This compelling and remarkable story is said to have been written down by St. Mark, but is attributed to St. Peter. It tells of Jesus’s conflict with the religious and secular authorities of the time, his important teachings, his somewhat stormy, often humorous relationships with his disciples, his miraculous acts and above all, his unique sense of mission. This is “a riveting journey” to quote a recent article in the Episcopal Journal. Bair’s voice is “crystal-clear and his articulation holds one’s interest throughout.” It is performed in the simple, elegant English prose of the King James Bible. 

Tom Bair has appeared in dramatic roles on some of New York’s most prominent stages and in feature films, including Philip Roth’s Indignation.

Tom Bair has appeared in dramatic roles on some of NY’s most prominent stages and in feature films, including Philip Roth’s Indignation, due out in 2016.

He and his wife, Geralyn Wolf (former Bishop of Rhode Island), reside in NYC.

EQ-HR Center's 5-Day Emotional Intelligence Workshop, Hickory, NC

  • Catholic Conference Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Center for Emotional Intelligence and Human Relations Skills (EQ-HR Center) is pleased to announce an upcoming 5-day workshop at Catholic Conference Center in Hickory, NC, October 30th-November 3rd.

What happens at an EQ-HR Workshop?

This core EQ HR Center workshop is an intensive four or five-day session designed to enable participants to learn about, build and practice emotional intelligence skills in a small group setting. Skilled facilitators provide tools and feedback to enable participants to learn about themselves and to immediately practice emerging skills. As group life unfolds, participants give and receive feedback regarding the impact they have on others in the group. Participants will learn both inter-personal and intra-group communication skills.

The content of the workshop revolves around the twelve competencies that differentiate outstanding from average per- formers. These twelve competencies cover four distinct areas of ability. They are:

1. Self-awareness-Recognizing and understanding our own emotions.
2. Self-management-Effectively managing our own emotions.
3. Social Awareness-Recognizing and understanding the emotions of others.
4. Relationship Management-Applying our emotional understanding in our dealings with others.

What is the ESCI 360 Survey?

As part of this core event, workshop participants complete a comprehensive self-assessment of their emotional intelligence. They also identify up to 20 people (manager(s), direct reports, peers, clients, family and friends) who know them well and are willing to complete the same assessment in order to provide valuable feedback. What results is a detailed report of one's Emotional Intelligence strengths and development needs. This will be for the participant's eyes only and will provide possible personal items to be explored in one’s small group.

Progoff Intensive Journal Workshop at the DuBose Conference Center

  • DuBose Conference Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Progoff Intensive Journal® method is a powerful tool for self-development and growth, and has been used for years by individuals seeking to dive deeply into personal issues, deal with transitions, and open doorways into spirituality. Join us at the DuBose Conference Center Oct. 29–Nov. 3 for a full immersion into this integrated system of writing exercises. You will gain insight into many different dimensions of your life including personal relationships, career, health, dreams, and life’s meaning.

Though the workshop will be conducted in a group setting, you will work in total privacy. Your facilitator will help to guide you through the process in a non-judgmental, supportive, and low-key manner. 

This workshop is presented without dogma: people of all different backgrounds, interests, and faiths are welcome.

The workshop is divided into three modules. Register for one, two, or all.

Module 1: Life Context (LC) Workshop, Gaining a Perspective on Life

Module I (Sunday & Monday) introduces the Progoff™ method and covers about half the exercises in the Intensive Journal workbook. You will develop an inner perspective and gain greater awareness of major areas of your life, and the dialogue process will provide a unique way to gain feedback and momentum toward a deeper understanding of these areas.

Module 2: Depth Contact (DC) Workshop, Symbolic Images and Meaning in Life

Module II (Tuesday & Wednesday) will deepen your experience as you focus on the exercises in the second half of the Intensive Journal workbook. You will learn how to use Progoff's unique non-analytical method to draw forth messages from your inner symbolic experiences, which can provide important insight into your unfolding life process. You will explore past experiences that had significant meaning, gain insights into your ultimate concerns, and explore major themes in your life.

Module 3: Life Integration (LI) Workshop, Integrating the Life Process

(Thursday & Friday) Experience the cumulative dynamic process created from working with material in one workbook section and how it can lead to entries in other related areas. This progressively deepening process generates an inner momentum and energy as you apply Progoff's non-analytical Journal Feedback techniques. Your workbook becomes an active instrument as you approach situations from different perspectives. New awareness and growth become possible as you realize connections between diverse areas. You are drawing your unfolding life process forward as you move toward greater wholeness and integration. 

The skills learned here will last a lifetime. Working through these modules will introduce you to a soulful and practical companion for working through issues and transitions, but more importantly, for access to deep creative resources that live within you. The method is a genuinely contemplative, meditative process that cultivates deep inner reflection.

Residential and commuter tuition rates are offered, and CEUs are available.

Covenant House Job Fair October 26th from 8:30am-11:30 am.

The Rotary Club of Brookhaven and Covenant House are offering employers an opportunity to meet candidates at a job fair on October 26th from 8:30am-11:30 am.  

As an employer you know one exceptional employee is better than two average
employees. An exceptional employee is the one that brings a level of work ethic and
motivation above all others. I am talking about the individual who shows up early, works
extra hours when needed and does not question when asked to do something.

Wondering where you can find an exceptional employee? Or, where can you hire them early enough in their careers? The answer is at Covenant House.

"These kids were so eager to learn and listen and do well,” says Bob Cunningham, President of Cunningham Heating & Air Conditioning.

“It was the best job fair I have ever attended," said the Market Manager of Costco.

The Covenant House not only provides shelter for young adults (age 18 to 20) experiencing homelessness but it provides guidance and support along the way. The Covenant House assists young adults get their lives in order and prepares them to enter the work force and be productive citizens.

About Covenant House
Covenant House was founded in 1972 with the simple, profound mission to help homeless
kids escape the streets. Today we are the largest privately funded charity in the Americas
providing loving care and vital services to homeless, abandoned, abused, trafficked, and
exploited youth.

About Brookhaven Rotary
Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer leaders dedicated to tackling the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges. Rotary connects 1.2 million members of more than 34,000 Rotary clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas. Their work impacts lives at both the local and international levels, from helping families in need in their own communities to working toward a polio-free world. For more information, visit Rotary.

Memorial Dedication

Alta-Vista-Cemetery-Longstreet-Plot.jpg

The blessing and dedication of a memorial to commemorate those interred in more than 1,100 unmarked graves will be held Sunday, October 22, 2017, beginning at 2 p.m. The graves are in a section of the cemetery that was reserved from circa 1870 to the 1950s for the burial of black Gainesville residents.

Clergy and members of Grace Episcopal Church in Gainesville worked with community partners, and the city of Gainesville to make the memorial a reality, according to Grace Rector, The Rev. Stuart Higginbotham. 

The city provided a 7-foot black marble obelisk for the site and members of Grace and others donated matching marble benches surrounding the memorial to create a space for reflection. "It is an extraordinary example of a community coming together," Higginbotham said.

The memorial is intended to provide recognition of those unknowns interred in the 140-year-old cemetery which also holds the remains of veterans of Revolutionary War and over 100 Civil War veterans, the most famous of which is Lt. General James Longstreet.
