A Note From the Rector

Dear Saints,

The Book of Common Prayer offers in prayer that God might “guide the nations of the world into the way of justice and truth, and establish among them that peace which is the fruit of righteousness.” This weekend we welcome the Rev. Dr. Gary Mason to lead us through a weekend dedicated to reflections on the peace of God which surpasses all understanding. In the details given below of the weekend’s events, you will see how through worship, and music, and the spoken word there are opportunities for you and I to be formed as peacemakers for the world we live in. We have invited our parish and our local neighbors, and I encourage you to do the same such that we might share with others the abundant life together which we enjoy in this church. A few spots are still available for the closing lunch and address with Dr. Mason in the Ross Room following the 11:15 a.m. service, so please do register soon if you would like to have the opportunity to engage him and others in that more intimate setting.

Whether you are able to be with us this weekend or whether you are away, may God’s peace be with you.
Peace,
Simon+


 

A Weekend for Peace

Join us this September as we welcome The Rev. Dr. Gary Mason to All Saints’. Dr. Mason is a Methodist minister who spent 27 years in parish ministry in Belfast where he played an integral role in the Northern Irish peace process, and who now directs a conflict transformation organization based in Belfast called “Rethinking Conflict.”

In his lecture, Dr. Mason will address the needs of Atlanta in seeking a peaceable common life, touching on racial identity, the legacies of slavery and the ongoing struggle for civil rights, economic disparity, the impact of gentrification, and the more positive heritage of Atlanta as a city that has been “too busy to hate.” Stay with us that evening for Songs of Peace, a concert of music, poetry and other performances, in collaboration with various high schools and collegiate communities in Atlanta as well as professional artists.

On Sunday, Dr. Mason will deliver the sermon at the 9:00 a.m. worship service, and then he will lead a discussion in the Rector’s Forum with a panel of our youth about hopes the generations of the future might have for peace in their time. The weekend will conclude with a closing luncheon when Dr. Mason will deliver the keynote address.

We excitedly look forward to this weekend of peace. We hope you’ll plan to join us.

Wednesday Morning Discussion Group 
Wednesdays, 10:00-11:30 a.m. in P307, Parish House
Facilitated by The Rev. Dr. Jim Donald
“I Believe in the Holy Spirit.” We say it in the Creed. We think the faith stool has three legs. But what is it, this Spirit business? And what does it mean to trust it? Or is it him? Or her? This group is discussing Anglican scholar Michael Green’s classic, I Believe in the Holy Spirit. What does scripture say? What does history say? How does it work in your life? How does it influence the Church? For more information, contact The Rev. Dr. Jim Donald at jasdonald@aol.com.

Jezebels: Women’s Book Study
Wednesdays, 5:00-6:00 p.m. in P201, Parish House

Widening the Circle: The Art of Dialogue with all Sorts of Saints
Wednesdays, September 26 and October 3, 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the Ross Room, Parish House
Join our Rector, Simon, for a five-session course on the art of dialogue. The course is intended for parishioners to join one another in exploring the art of practicing holy conversations that seek to learn from and be enriched by the insights of others. Participants can expect to grow in relationship, to learn from a wide array of viewpoints, and to be better prepared to promote civil discourse in their everyday lives. Childcare will be available. For more information, contact Lauri Begley at lbegley@allsaintsatlanta.org.

Contemplative Prayer 
Wednesdays, 7:00-8:30 p.m. in P202, Parish House
Psalm 46:10 tells us, “Be still and know that I am God,” but it can be difficult to carve out a place and time for meditation. In a sermon, The Rev. Kim Jackson said, “Come away, and go to a deserted place and rest a while,” even in the midst of so much that screams for our attention. At the prayer gatherings, you will learn history and theory of contemplative prayer through readings for reflection and discussion, with time to engage in the discipline of centering prayer in restful, holy silence. Contact Gretchen Chateau at jetteyeknight@hotmail.com for more information.

The Terrible Speed of Grace: Eudora Welty’s Short Stories
Sundays, October 7, 14 and 21, 10:20-11:05 a.m. in the Ross Room, Parish House
Facilitated by Scholar-in-Residence Dr. Clark Lemons
And he said to me my grace is enough for you, for power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9). Grace is the gift of God, but we can also bestow grace on others and they on us. Or we can choose not to give or accept the grace St. Paul talks about in Corinthians. American writers reveal the presence of grace-it’s almost an obsession with many of them. They most clearly do it in a short story in which there are characters in conflict and a thought-provoking end. We will study the stories of Eudora Welty, well-known novelist and short story writer from Jackson, Mississippi. Stories will be available before class, and I hope-not require-that you read them ahead so you can discuss, give opinions, and ask questions. Maybe we’ll discover just what grace is. Contact The Rev. Kim Jackson at kjackson@allsaintsatlanta.org for more information.

Novel Theology: The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai
Wednesday, October 17, 7:00-8:00 p.m. in P307, Parish House
Facilitator: Simon Mainwaring
Join this group in a discussion that will explore the lives of characters trapped in India’s class system, both the lower and the upper class. In a crumbling, isolated house at the foot of Mount Kanchenjunga in the Himalayas lives an embittered judge who wants only to retire in peace, when his orphaned granddaughter, Sai, arrives on his doorstep. The judge’s cook watches over her distractedly, for his thoughts are often on his son, Biju, who is hopscotching from one gritty New York restaurant to another. Kiran Desai’s characters face numerous choices that majestically illuminate the consequences of colonialism as it collides with the modern world. For more information, contact Amelia Tuttle at amelia.tuttle9@gmail.com.
