Wednesdays, September 12, 19 & 26 :: 6:30 - 7:30 PM

A three-part introduction to how odd and alien early Christians were not only in their own time to Jews, Greeks, and Romans, but even more to us. Are early Christians the ancestors we want to resurrect, remember, learn from and embrace? Would you like to be an early Christian?

Elements of a Contemplative Reformation: Fall Workshops

September 15, October 13, November 3

We are reflecting on elements of a contemplative reformation within the context of Grace Episcopal Church and the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta–and the broader community of which we are a part. There are elements of theological reflection as well as practice that are essential as we lean more into this deeper, contemplative tradition within our parishes and communities. To that end, we are offering these spaces for conversation, study, and practice. more information

The next Women's Study will meet on Wednesday evenings in October. We'll focus our studies on the work of Brene Brown. Watch for more details!

Poetry of Recollection and Communion
Or, Poetry Consecrating our Common Conversation into Communion

Wednesdays, November 7, 14 & 28 :: 6:30 - 7:30 PM

A two-part introduction to American poetry’s attempts to make sense of our common experience by drawing language into the depths and hopes of our modern American experience. We will also explore how many American poets, while abandoning Christian or any religious affiliation, continue to be full of the ecstasy and the communion of flesh and sounds in poetry. Also, how do Christian poets find ways to make poetry in the midst of a radically secular America?

Our third meeting will be an offering to the parish. Those who are willing will bring their own poems or poems they choose to share at the beginning of Advent.
