Faith and Justice Collective

The MICAH Project

Contact Sarah Hill at

In fulfillment of Micah 6:8, The MICAH Project nurtures racial healing as part of our spiritual formation by facilitating and engaging in honest conversations about race. We seek as a church community to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God and one another. We focus on anti-racism efforts in Georgia and their meaning for us as people of faith. We gather to study, attend programs, and engage in conversations about race and its legacies, centering our experience in our responsibilities as Christians and our need for spiritual growth.

Sacred Ground

Contact Ann Stuart Pearce at

Sacred Ground is a film-based and readings-based dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. Small groups are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of racism and the social construction of race, while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity. This curriculum is part of Becoming Beloved Community, the Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice in our personal lives, our ministries, and our society. The eleven-session curriculum takes approximately six months to complete, meeting every other week. We launch new Sacred Ground dialogue circles in October and they end in April. If you are interested, please send an email to .”

Prison Engagement

Ending Mass Incarceration: A Multifaith Coalition

Contact: Jan Kibler at

After the June 2019 and the January 2023 interfaith conferences, “Ending Mass Incarceration,” hosted by Ebenezer Baptist Church and The Temple, a coalition of midtown faith communities began meeting to see how we could come together as people of faith to address structural injustices related to the prison system. You are welcome to attend the monthly meetings at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church with fellow All Saints’ parishioners and discern how you might join in the multifaceted work. The present focus of the coalition is on expungements, cash bail reform, and partnering with the Georgia Justice Project on restorative justice sentencing alternatives.

All Saints' Freedom Writers

Contact Rev. Dr. Jenny McBride at

All Saints’ parishioners are each invited into a friendship with an individual incarcerated at a women’s facility in Georgia. Interested individuals are prepared through a letter writing training and participate in a regular time of reflective processing over Zoom with other All Saints’ letter writers, as we discuss what we are learning from our pen pals about the prison system and about ourselves. By building a relationship with an incarcerated person, letter writers will be meeting a basic need identified by those who are surviving prison, namely, a supportive relationship with others and connection to the outside world. Our letter writing is grounded in Jesus’s words that whatever we do for persons who are most vulnerable in our society, like those in prison, we do it to him (Matthew 25:36).

Death Penalty Abolition

Contact Rev. Jenny McBride at

Recent conversations about the death penalty were sparked at All Saints’ as a group of thirty-five parishioners gathered in the spring of 2023 to discuss Rev. Dr. Jenny McBride’s book, You Shall Not Condemn: A Story of Faith and Advocacy on Death Row (Wipf & Stock, 2022). All Saints’ parishioners are invited to join in the work of Georgians For Alternatives to the Death Penalty, which seeks to abolish the death penalty in Georgia, and New Hope House, which ministers to families of men on Georgia’s death row.

Faithful Advocates

Contact Suzanne Wakefield at

Faithful Advocates work in collaboration with other faith communities and local organizations, and in support of ministries at All Saints’, to promote justice, peace, and human dignity by participating in the democratic process. We work in a nonpartisan manner, raising awareness and focusing primarily at the state level by connecting with legislators through various communication channels, including annual Lobby Days.

Bridge of Light in Partnership with All Saints’

Contact: Tasia Blair at

Bridge of Light's mission is to restore dignity and hope to people who are experiencing homelessness, who are transitioning out of homelessness, or are at-risk of becoming unhoused. Bridge of Light deploys three mobile resource centers that provide free showers, laundry service, haircuts, and clothing. All Saints’ Young Adults have partnered with Bridge of Light, making this ministry our primary service opportunity, and parishioners of any age are invited to volunteer with us.

Core Ministries

Many participants in the Collective are also active in our parish’s Core Ministries: Threads, Refugee Ministries, Midtown Assistance Center, and Covenant Community. These ministries are a primary way that we at All Saints’ enact the works of mercy that Jesus names in Matthew 25, namely, to feed the hungry, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked, and care for the sick. Click here to learn more about each of our core ministries and to find contact information:
