Them, Us, and We: Spiritual Reflections on Alvin Ailey’s Revelations

January 21, 28, February 4*, 18, in Ellis Hall (*meets in The Attic on February 4)
Let The Reverend Angela Denise Davis, M.Div., M.S., CRC, take you on an exploration of embodiment, community, and difference using Alvin Ailey’s dance masterpiece, Revelations, as a carrier oil for dialogue. Together you’ll examine the significance of African American sacred music, black bodies and black spirituality, and the use of art to encourage communities of “we-ness.”

Angela Denise Davis is an ordained minister whose areas of focus are diversity training for congregations, art as a means of spiritual direction, spiritual activism, career discernment and preparedness, and disability awareness training. She currently directs a spiritual collective, Sister Harriet, which she started in 2010, and provides career counseling for blind and visually impaired job seekers through her business, Braille South.

This four-week series culminates with an invitation to join Arts and Theology at the matinée performance of the Alvin Ailey Dance Company at the Fox Theatre on Sunday, February 18 at 3:00 p.m. For more information about Arts Theology email Matt Collins at matt@mpcollins.com.

The Episcopal Church is committed to faith communities that are nurturing and safe spaces for children and adults. Safeguarding God’s Children (SGC) is a training program for the prevention of sexual misconduct used across the Episcopal Church, providing participants information they need to protect the well-being of children, and to provide guidance on the establishment of healthy boundaries between children and the adults who care for them.

Through the course of the new year, All Saints’ will be offering a number of in-person training sessions as well as directing parishioners to online training options as we seek to build our awareness and skills to ensure that our church community follows best practices for the safeguarding of children and adults. In the new year, parishioners in various ministry roles will receive a letter from the rector inviting them either to take or to refresh their training. Further opportunities for training will be facilitated by the church through the coming year.
