Sunday Morning Discussion Group:
Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Sunday, March 26, 10:20—11:05 a.m. in the Fireplace Room, Tate Hall
Facilitated by The Rev. Dr. Jim Donald

Bonhoeffer, a German Lutheran pastor, left New York City to return to Nazi Germany in 1943 to join the underground church. He was imprisoned and executed about a week before the Third Reich’s fall. What does it cost to be a disciple? Bonhoeffer’s distinction between “cheap” and “costly” grace has on-going challenges for our times. For more information, contact The Rev. Dr. Jim Donald at jasdonald@aol.com.

Building Beloved Community: Spiritual Formation and Dismantling Racism

Sundays, March 5, 12, 19, 26, April 2, 10:20—11:05 a.m. in the Ross Room, 3rd floor, Parish House
During Lent, we are called to the work of repentance and reconciliation. The Beloved Community: Commission for Dismantling Racism of the Diocese of Atlanta works to connect the work of healing racism to our baptismal call and our ongoing spiritual formation. We will learn about the history of the commission, the work they are doing, the training they led for the vestry, and the three-year cycle of pilgrimages to lynching sites they are leading.

  • March 5 | Repentance and Reconciliation
    The Rev. Martha Sterne and Rebecca Parker discuss the framework of repentance and reconciliation as the spiritual work of Lent.
  • March 12 | Dismantling Racism
    Scott Porter presents an overview of the training received by our vestry from the Diocesan Commission for Dismantling Racism to share how parishes can participate in the work of the Beloved Community.
  • March 19 | Catherine Meeks
    Catherine joins us again to discuss the history of the Beloved Community and the Commission for Dismantling Racism and the role of the Bishop and the Diocese in that work.
  • March 26 | Paul Zweir
    Paul, a professor and head of the mediation group at Emory Law School, is currently focused on the schism occurring in the U.S. associated with the current political environment. Using books like the Hillbilly Elegy and Stranger in Our Own Land as a discussion basis, he will share ideas
    on how communities can engage in civil discourse in times of deep division, leading us into a discussion where parishioners with diverse views can engage with one another in order to develop a greater appreciation of the community we share at All Saints’, despite our differences.
  • April 2 | Pilgrimages
    Pilgrimages play a significant role in spiritual formation as well as in dismantling racism. We have taken pilgrimages to the Clark Atlanta University Art Museum as well as the Center for Civil and Human Rights. In 2016, the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta began a three-year cycle of pilgrimages to Georgia sites of martyrdom, commonly known as lynching sites. During these visits, pilgrims offer memorial services, place historical markers, offer prayers and engage in healing conversation.

Maundy Thursday, April 13.

Soup will be provided. Bring your favorite breads, cheeses and olives to share. If you choose, take part in the profoundly strange and holy ministry of foot-washing, which is how Jesus chose not to just tell us but to show us the new Commandment to Love One Another.

Their latest book, The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World, offers us a rare opportunity to experience their astonishing and unprecedented week together, from the first embrace to the final good-bye.

Did you know that there is a purpose to love and frustration? As couples we want to feel more connected to our partners. What we often don’t have are the skills necessary to develop a connection that brings more joy in our life. This four-week course invites couples to protect, nourish and move their relationship into an even more enduring and fulfilling connection. The program is based on Imago Relationship Therapy, though this is educational (not therapy). Jesica and her husband Brian provide a fun, approachable, engaging way to learn about your relationship and its wonderful purposes. $75 per couple for the workbook. Register online at allsaintsatlanta.org/couplesreg. Contact The Rev. Kim Jackson at kjackson@allsaintsatlanta.org with questions.

All are welcome, from novices to longtime practitioners. For more information, contact Gretchen Chateau at jetteyeknight@hotmail.com.
