40 Days of Lent | Part 2
Lent is a season where we have the opportunity to grow our hearts and our faith. These 40 days offer a time when we get to look at our lives with honesty and our actions with purpose. And it is through this honest assessment during Lent that we get to renew our aspirations, and our intentions, to follow Jesus.
40 days of Lent | Part 1
Rather than viewing this Lenten season as a time to do without, our hope is to provide you with daily reminders that will both inspire and challenge you to take action and grow closer to Jesus. Hear from our bishop as he shares his thoughts and reflections during this Lenten season.
Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing
The Diocese of Atlanta is proud to be home to a new resource for the worldwide Episcopal Church. Located at the Atlanta University Center among Morehouse, Spelman and Clark Atlanta campuses on the Westside of Atlanta, the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing will provide parishes and dioceses around the world with the support to address racism head-on through racial reconciliation and healing. The resource and training center is housed in what was known as the historic Absalom Jones Episcopal Center and Chapel building. The creation of the Center aligns with The Episcopal Church and our Diocese’s commitment to reach across the borders and boundaries that divide the human family of God.

That is one of many questions participants wrestled with during an August 30 discussion at The Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta, GA.
