The Beloved Community: Commission for Dismantling Racism is joining with St. Paul's Episcopal Church in remembering Absalom Jones, who was the first African American to be ordained as a priest in the Episcopal Church.
The activities will begin on Friday, February 10, 2017 with the screening of the powerful and thought provoking film 13th directed by Ava Duvernay at 6:30 PM. Following the screening, there will be a discussion led on the film by Commission members as we explore its message to our community at this present moment.
On Saturday there will be a day long dismantling racism training for those who have previously registered for the session. This will be followed on Sunday by a worship service with the Rev. Dr. Emory Berry Jr., the senior pastor of the Greenforest Community Baptist Church in Decatur serving as the preacher at 4:00 PM.
All events for the weekend will be held at St. Paul's Episcopal Church at 306 Peyton Road SW, Atlanta, Georgia. Please contact St. Paul's or Dr. Catherine Meeks at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
