Commemorate the Centenary of the Signing of the Armistice that Ended WWI Hostilities

The Armistice that ended WWI hostilities was signed at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. November 11, 2018 is the centenary of the signing of the Armistice.

On this day, the plan is for bells to toll across our nation of six time zones to commemorate the peace. The U.S. WWI Commission is asking each State WWI Commission to organize the ringing of the bells of peace.

The GA WWI Centennial Commission is requesting the Episcopal churches in the Diocese of Atlanta to toll their bells on November 11, 2018 at 11:00am. For further information and updates, please contact Don Plummer at dplummer@episcopalatlanta.org.

Episcopal Veterans Fellowship, Diocese of Atlanta Kick-off

vet.jpg

Be part of the kick-off for the Episcopal Veterans Fellowship in Georgia! Join with others who feel called to minster to and with veterans and their families.

Featured Presenters: 
- The Rev. David Peters, founder of the Episcopal Veterans Fellowship;
- The Right Reverend Carl Wright, Episcopal Church Bishop Suffragan for Armed Services and Federal Ministries; 
- The Right Reverend Robert Wright, bishop of the Diocese of Atlanta.

The Episcopal Veterans Fellowship equips Christians for ministry to veterans through prayer, hospitality, and reconciliation. The EVF offers educational workshops, consulting, and coaching so your Church can reach out with God’s love to the veterans who live in your community.

The Episcopal Veterans Fellowship (EVF) was born in 2009 in a resolution* from General Convention to “Encourage the establishment of an Episcopal Veterans Fellowship for each diocese.” 

In 2014, with a blessing from the Rt. Rev. Andy Doyle of the Diocese of Texas and a grant from the Episcopal Evangelism Society, a group of veterans gathered at St. David’s Episcopal Church for a Pilgrimage of Remembrance and Reconciliation. Under the stained-glass window depicting St. Martin of Tours, the patron saint of veterans, they prayed for their friends who died in war and homecoming. 

By 2015, four parishes in the Diocese of Texas hosted EVF groups, a testament to the enthusiasm and dedication of those first members.

In 2017, EVF founder The Rev. David Peters was named one of five Episcopal Church Foundation (ECF) Fellows and is using his grant to travel around the country offering healing services for veterans and assisting parishes and dioceses interested in starting EVF chapters.

SANKOFA: A Salute to the Music of Black Composers

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

As we live into our new companion relationship with the Diocese of Cape Coast, Ghana, we have a rare opportunity to host a group of 13 vocalists that will perform in tribute to the music of black composers. 

Highpoint Episcopal Community Church is pleased to present and host a celebration of voice, heritage, and relationship on February 25. 

The concert will showcase the wonderful art songs and spiritual arrangements that are both forgotten and celebrated. The musicians are a mix of opera singers from the Atlanta Opera Chorus and Capital City Opera, as well as music educators. 

This performance is also based on one guiding principle: SANKOFA. This word from the Twi language of Ghana translates to we have to go back to get something in order to go forward. Bishop Wright used this message to guide the first diocesan pilgrimage to Ghana.

Serendipitously, we have the honor to have the Rev. George Neequaye from Ghana (cousin of The Rev. Canon John Thompson-Quartay) staying in a newly built suite at High Point. George will offer his wisdom and story to our evening celebration.  

This concert is free and open to the community. Reception to follow. Please come join us.

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.

It is offered several times throughout the year and is required for all parish clergy and all lay leaders, including vestry members.  Training sessions are developed by the Diocese of Atlanta Beloved Community: Commission for Dismantling Racism.

The training was adjusted in 2012 to "reflect the fruit of several conversations that the commission has conducted," said Dr. Catherine Meeks of Riverdale, commission chair. "We have wanted to reframe the training in a way that makes the experience a part of the ongoing spiritual formation of the participants," she said.

Training, required of all clergy and lay leaders, runs for a single day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Although there is no charge to take the training, pre-registration is requested no later than one week in advance.

Diocesan Day on Immigration

Amid all of the public turmoil about immigration, how do Christians respond in a way that allows them to live into their baptismal promise to respect the dignity of all persons and the imperative from Jesus to love our neighbor as ourselves?

That is one of many questions participants will wrestle with during an August 30 discussion at The Cathedral of St. Philip, 2744 Peachtree Road, N.E, Atlanta, GA 30305. The session, scheduled for 1 p.m. - 3 p.m., is free and open to the public. It will be streamed live at stphilipscathedral.org/stream

The event will include presentations by priests and Christian lay leaders from the Atlanta area actively involved in responding to the needs of our immigrant neighbors. Episcopal bishops Robert Wright of the Diocese of Atlanta and Jose McLoughlin of the Diocese of Western North Carolina will provide theological guidance and practical ways Christians can respond to this hotly debated issue. There will also be information on accessing resources for immigrants and how people of faith can best use those resources. This event is free and open to the public. To learn more about the Diocesan Day on Immigration, click here. 

 

El obispo le da la bienvenida

Es chocante ver a Jesús llamar tonto a un emprendedor de negocios. Considera su vida: pequeños campos se convierten en grandes, pequeños graneros en más grandes. Lucas 12: 13-21 ¿Cómo le llamarías? ¡Jesús le llama tonto! En su búsqueda de MÄS este hombre no consulta a nadie sino a sí mismo. Nunca se detiene a dar gracias a Dios por la cosecha que llena sus graneros. Sus obras no se basan en la gratitud. No desarrolla un plan para compartir la riqueza con los que recogen las cosechas o construyen los graneros. No considera nunca que a su muerte la riqueza no podrá ser transferida a la siguiente realidad. No aprendió nunca que la riqueza es un don y que debemos ser co-constructores del reino de Dios. ¿Jesús socialista? No creo que Jesús se preocupe de un sistema económico o de otro. Para Jesús, se trata siempre del corazón. Se trata siempre de que seamos ricos en Dios. —Obispo Roberto Wright

TASTE & SEE: Faith at Work in Nicaragua

St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church
1790 LaVista Road, NE
Atlanta, GA 30329

Fr. Geoffrey and Susan Boyer invite you to dine with them in the company of Sarah Woodward, a member of the Jubilee House Community in Managua, Nicaragua. After dinner Sarah will speak on the Community’s remarkable work and display items for sale from various cooperatives and individuals they have assisted since migrating south from North Carolina in 1994.

The Jubilee House Community through its Center for Development in Central America has been working in Nicaragua for the past 20 years promoting the spread of sustainable agriculture, fostering  sustainable economic development, expanding healthcare, and offering educational opportunities in the third poorest country in the Americas.  Their efforts have been both astonishing and inspiring.  For example this small band of disciples has aided some 3,000 farmers with capital, (organic) certification, marketing and technical support in that time.  Their Nueva Vida Clinic has treated 100,240 patients.  They have helped to create jobs through loans of 5.3 million dollars to urban and rural co-ops and start-ups, among which is the world’s first clothing line certified as “fair trade” & “organic” from crop to consumer.  And among the 163 groups with 2,500+ people and 670 individual volunteers are two that Fr. Geoff has led personally.  

Please join us and consider whether you or your parish might be inspired to support this long-standing social justice ministry through participating in a work trip, offering financial support, or planning an informational evening in your parish.
