Smoke on the Mountain

The Christ Church Players proudly present their annual summer show, a production of “Smoke on the Mountain” on August 24 and 25th, 2018 at 7:00 PM.

This production tells the story of a Saturday Night Gospel Sing at a country church in North Carolina’s Smoky Mountains in 1938. The show features two dozen rousing bluegrass songs played and sung by the Sanders Family, a traveling group making its return to performing after a five-year hiatus. Pastor Oglethorpe, the young and enthusiastic minister of Mount Pleasant Baptist Church, has enlisted the Sanders Family in his efforts to bring his tiny congregation into “the modern world.” Between songs, the family members “witness” – telling stories about important events in their lives. Though they try to appear perfect in the eyes of a congregation who wants to be inspired by their songs, one thing after another goes awry and they reveal their true – and hilariously imperfect – natures. By the evening’s end, the Sanders Family has endeared themselves to us by revealing their weaknesses and allowing us to share in their triumphs.

Tickets are available for $10 through the church office at 770-447-1188. For more information, see the website at www.ccnorcross.org.

This production is also in honor of the year long celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the founding of Christ Church Episcopal in Norcross August, 1978, in the home of the former Mayor, Gary Cobb. Since that start, the congregation has grown to more than 300 families with over 30 different ministries.

SUMMA Debate Camp

summa.jpg

SUMMA Student Theological Debate Society invites high school students entering grades 9–12 in the fall of 2018 to apply for SUMMA Debate Camp, held July 17–25 at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. SUMMA Camp is a unique opportunity for students to explore their faith through intellectual channels, meet lifelong friends, and have a lot of fun on one of the most beautiful college campuses in the country!

At SUMMA Camp, students of all faiths learn valuable skills for debate, public speaking, and theological reflection. No previous debate experience or formal theological study is necessary. Campers have a true collegiate experience, but camp is not all work! There is plenty of time left over to swim, play sports, watch movies, go bowling, and have lots of great, summer fun!

SUMMA camper Abby tells her story!

At the beginning of camp, a resolution is introduced, and each student argues both sides of the issue. Past resolutions include:

  • "In Christ there is hope for Cruella de Vil,"
  • “Christians, Muslims, and Jews all worship the same God,”
  • "Euthanasia is morally justified," 
  • "Christian marriage is a solemn and public covenant between a man and a woman in the presence of God," 
  • "Outside the Church, there is no salvation." 

At the end of camp, the SUMMA prize is awarded to the student who best exemplifies the spirit of SUMMA camp: speaking the truth in love. The SUMMA prize includes a $1,000 scholarship.

For all students, the cost of SUMMA is partially defrayed through donations, grants, and an endowment. The cost to parents is $750, which includes room, all meals, and all materials.

A limited number of scholarships are available for students with demonstrated financial need.

For more information and to apply, visit summa.sewanee.edu, or contact recruitment specialist Walker Adams at hwadams@sewanee.edu.

Book Study: The Cross and the Lynching Tree, by James H. Cone

St-Barts-book-study-July-2018.png

Book Study: The Cross and the Lynching Tree, by James H. Cone
Facilitated by Rev. Dr. Angela Shepherd

  • Wednesday mornings (10:00-11:30am), July 11-August 15
  • Wednesday evenings (6:30-8:00pm), July 11-August 15

The same material will be covered in the morning and evening sessions. 

“The cross and the lynching tree are separated by nearly 2,000 years. One is the universal symbol of Christian faith; the other is the quintessential symbol of black oppression in America. Though both are symbols of death, one represents a message of hope and salvation, while the other signifies the negation of that message by white supremacy. What is at stake is the credibility and promise of the Christian gospel and the hope that we may heal the wounds of racial violence that continue to divide our churches and our society.”
–James Cone

Books are available for purchase in the church office or in the Parish Hall on Sundays ($24.08). Ebooks are available online. The book is also available in small quantities from the DeKalb and Fulton public libraries.

All are welcome. Registration is needed so we can create additional small groups during the same timeframe as needed. Call the church office at 404-634-3336 to reserve your spot, or sign up online at https://tinyurl.com/ConeBook.

2018 Christian Formation Conference: Coming Home

  • Kanuga Conference Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The oldest Christian formation conference for Episcopal educators, the Christian
Formation Conference has been a Kanuga staple since 1928. Each year, clergy,
professional educators, and countless volunteers come together to share the best
formation practices, be inspired by great speakers from around the country, and be
rekindled for ministry.

Keynote Speaker: Victoria Garvey
An educator for most of her life, Victoria Garvey has a passion for learning and teaching, and
for the Church. In her professional career, Vicki has taught at nearly every level, from 2nd
graders through graduate school, but she has spent most of that time at Seabury-Western,
teaching biblical languages and biblical theology, her doctoral area. Her exploration of the
Bible with ‘footnotes’ is deep and captivating. Most recently, those passions were fed in her
position as Bishop’s Associate for Lifelong Christian Formation in the Episcopal Diocese of
Chicago. Currently she serves on two faculties for the wider church, consults with dioceses
concerning congregational vitality, speaks locally, nationally and internationally, facilitates
workshops, leads retreats, and serves the wider church as member of several churchwide
commissions. She is a four-time deputy from the Diocese of Chicago to General Convention.

Community Healthcare Services Clinic Ribbon Cutting

CrawfordvilleStreet.jpg

This clinic in Taliaferro County is the first fruit of a call in 2016 by Bishop Rob Wright to identify and help meet pressing needs within the 27 counties of our Diocese without an Episcopal presence.

Using the Asset-Based Community Development model developed by Episcopal Relief and Development, a small group of volunteers studied the counties, made contact with local leaders and worked with them over the past two years to identify and accomplish their local priority.

The most pressing need identified by Taliaferro County residents was access to primary healthcare. A partnership of county, city and school officials was formed that developed a plan to create and support this health clinic. Located on county school property the clinic will serve uninsured children and adults from Taliaferro County's population of 1,700.

For more information about plans for our remaining unserved counties, email Don Plummer at dplummer@episcopalatlanta.org

Jon Sweeney Lecture and Book Signing

PhyllisTickleALife.png

Jon Sweeney Lecture and Book Signing May 3rd!

Phyllis Tickle died at 81 in September 2015. Before her death, she named Jon M. Sweeney her official biographer. Sweeney is coming to Atlanta to give a lecture on the life and career of this extraordinary woman. He will discuss her written work over fifty years (poetry, plays, literary, spiritual, and historical/theological), her marriage and family, and life on the Farm in Lucy, the subject of much of her oeuvre. Then there's Tickle’s work as an academic and book publisher in Tennessee, her impact as the founding editor in religion at Publishers Weekly during the boom of spiritual writing and interfaith understanding in the 1990s; relationships with Gwendolyn Brooks, John Shelby Spong, Marcus Borg, Brian McLaren, and Desmond Tutu; and the impact she had on the communities where all of her writing, scholarship, and advocacy has seen the greatest impact: the hundreds of thousands who took on fixed-hour prayer due to her The Divine Hours series; the Episcopal Church USA writ large; LGBTQ Christians awaiting full acceptance; and Emergence Christianity, for which she served as historian, forecaster, and champion.

This lecture is made possible by the generous support of our Book Fellows program.

Spring Mini Retreat - Sacred Citizenship

  • Amerson House, St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Location: Amerson House on the campus of St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church

Guided by Kimberly Broerman, Spiritual Director, Deep Waters Center

Whatever our political affiliations, the 2016 election and radical change of administrations, have left many of us with unprecedented feelings of heartbreak, rage, fear, and despair about the state of our beloved nation. We have seen with growing clarity the deep divisions, fears and hostilities among our citizenship, and watched our government move in directions that contradict many of our deepest beliefs and values. 

Simultaneously, we have witnessed and experienced a groundswell of new activism and political involvement on a number of fronts, and more truth coming to light around sexual abuse and discrimination, race relations, and gun violence, among other pressing concerns. We have careened between soaring hope and crushing despair.

In this Spring’s mini-retreat, we will reflect on our call to sacred citizenship, how we allow our faith convictions to shape our witness and work to heal the soul of our nation, to continue to form, re-form and transform our democracy into a “more perfect union.” Through deep dialogue, prayer and reflection, we will listen for the invitation of God to each and all of us in these times, how we discern what is ours to do in God’s ongoing work of creation and redemption. 

So we invite you in this Easter season to come away to the peace and quiet of Amerson House, to join with other seekers in search of hope, direction, and new life, not just for ourselves, but for our shared life as Americans. We trust and pray as always this retreat will be a time of spiritual rest, nourishment, and discernment for one and all.

Cost: $40 ($30 for St. Bart’s members) - includes lunch and materials. All proceeds will support the work of Amerson House Spirituality Center.

To Register: Email Lisa Persons amersonhouseevents@gmail.com or (404) 218-5527. Space is limited; sign up by Wednesday, April 25

We’ll also look at the reasons for including this book in the Bible, who the lovers might be, the difficulties of interpreting this book, and the disadvantages of reading this book in a language other than Hebrew. This class employs the video series "Uppity Women of the Bible," featuring Bible professor Dr. Lisa Wolfe. Class participants will benefit from reading Song of Songs before the class (try https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Song+of+Solomon+1-8&version=NRSV).

The Sewanee Contemplative Exchange: Bridging the Gap Between Contemplation and Compassionate Action

sewaneecontemplativeexchange.jpg

We live in a world saturated by dualisms, categories in which we place people and things in order to grant them worth and priority. We separate ourselves from each other—and God from ourselves—resulting in persistent tension and frustration, pain and grief. For too long we have separated—even if in our minds—the spheres of contemplation and action, of silence and embodiment, of prayer and reconciliation. When these two vital aspects of our lives are pulled apart, our contemplation easily becomes an insular escape and our compassionate action becomes reactive and driven by anger.

We are invited to integrate ourselves, to seek wholeness in our spiritual practice, In Christ, we see a reconciliation of all aspects of our being. In His personhood we see the potential for an authentic religious practice in which silence nurtures justice. We encounter a space where contemplation and compassionate action are no longer competing with each other; rather, they exist in a circular relationship in which silence grounds action and justice leads us to further prayer. We find hope and wholeness in our union with God and with one another.

Leadership for this event comes from a collaboration of colleagues from:  The Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation, Washington D.C.; The Beecken Center of the School of Theology, The University of the South; St. Mary's Sewanee:  The Ayres Center for Spiritual Development; Mary and Martha's Place, Atlanta, Georgia; Grace Episcopal Church, Gainesville, Georgia; and a consortium of clergy from The Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta and beyond, community and seminary leaders, spiritual directors, and teachers. 

Special Guest:  Dr. Lerita Coleman Brown, Ayse I Carden Distinguished Professor Emerita of Psychology, Agnes Scott College, will lead a series of guided meditations on the writings of Howard Thurman, weaving times of silence and prayer with reflection and pilgrimage.

In addition to a day of reflection and prayer, we will share a special pilgrimage to the historic Highlander Folk School, where Dr. King, Rosa Parks, and other civil rights leaders met to pray and reflect together.

For questions and information, please contact The Rev. Dr. Stuart Higginbotham (stuart@gracechurchgainesville.org) or Rebecca Parker (rebecca@maryandmarthasplace.com).

However, there has not been a regular, sustainable congregation at Zion since the early part of the 20th Century.

Adult Education Series: Discovering Dietrich Bonhoeffer

April 2018 - Dan Beck, Bonhoeffer.png

This talk will look at the life and work of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a German theologian who met martyrdom at the hands of Nazis. In the first week, we follow his life from a birth in privilege, through his rise as a theologian, then his struggle to free the church of Nazi domination, and finally into his participation in the plot to overthrow the Nazi government. 

We will dive into some of his works, including "Life Together," "The Cost of Discipleship," "Ethics," and the remarkable "Letters and Papers from Prison." The central question will be: "How can churches and individuals of faith respond to evil in places of great power?"

Presenter: Dr. Dan Beck. Dan is an organist, chorister, teacher, and member of St. Bartholomew's. He has a doctorate in divinity.
