A Note From the Rector

Dear Saints,

This Sunday, as we return to our regular worship schedule, and our hot breakfasts in Ellis Hall, we are reminded of how the rhythms of life of this church community hold together as one body. We live in divisive times, and as the events in Charlottesville of this past weekend have once again shown us, we are people in need of remembering what it is that we hold in common. This parish is a body where many journeys weave in and out of one another, including those of our youth, who this Sunday will share of their recent pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago. May we join with them, as fellow pilgrims on the way of Jesus, and offer our lives and our prayers in action to the service of God’s world. Though we are many, we are one body.

Peace,
Simon+


This Sunday

Rector’s Forum: Love Bade Me Welcome

Sunday, August 27, 10:20 a.m. in Ellis Hall, Parish House
Hospitality has been at the heart of Christian community since the Corinthians started arguing with the apostle Paul about dining arrangements in the early church. How we invite, how we welcome, how we recognize Christ in one another are all essential qualities for the 21st century church too. Join The Rev. Dr. Simon Mainwaring as he shares some of his own story of welcome, and imagine with him how the hospitality of God might be calling the Saints as a welcoming community of faith.

Refugee Ministries Move-in Day

Saturday, September 16, 10:30 a.m.—2:00 p.m.
Help furnish an apartment for a newly arriving refugee family. We need volunteers to drive a Uhaul truck, help unload the closet at All Saints’, unload items into the apartment, grocery shop for groceries for a week for the family (reimbursed and list provided); and bring the items to the apartment, unpack the kitchen, make beds, hang pictures, and provide lunch and beverages for volunteers. If you are interested in donating items to help the family get through their first new weeks here, please view our signup at signupgenius.com/go/4090e4ca4ab2aa2ff2-donations1. To donate or volunteer, contact Louisa Merchant at louisam@allsaintsatlanta.org or 404—403—5908. Thank you for providing a warm welcome to a family in need!
