One Day Cultural Competence Workshop
The Cathedral is hosting a workshop presented by One Small Change, Inc. on Friday, September 20, from 10 a m. – 3 p.m. These one-day Cultural Competence workshops are designed to create dialogue and introduce “foundational” concepts for how one person can make a positive difference. We address topics such as prejudice, implicit and explicit bias, poverty, privilege, the impact of stereotypes, microaggressions, and the role of expectation. We will cover different topics using a variety of media film clips and resources, large and small group activity, and home and pre-work assignments. The One Small Change facilitators emphasize strengths and dialogue, which make this training a positive and effective learning environment. Participants will learn to develop and practice skills that will help them navigate and create sustainable effective change and match their services to the communities in which they serve. There is no charge for this training, but space is limited so register soon. Contact Jeannie Mahood, jmahood@cathedralATL.org, with any questions.
The Good Books and Preachers and Leaders
As part of the Cathedral Art Committee’s rotating exhibitions in the Atrium, we are honored to present two loaned exhibitions from the Donna and Jim Philips collection. The theme of their collection Preachers and Leaders captures a wide range of hope, love, and forgiveness through the lens of some of our most important photographs of the 20th century. Within the exhibition, images of Civil Rights marches, baptismal scenes, and Sunday morning rituals come alive. One begins to examine everyone’s role within their faith, not only as a participant but as a leader within their community. Iconic portraits of key figures, such as Martin Luther King Jr., Albert Schweitzer and Billy Graham, stand side by side with devout believers, emphasizing everyone’s greater role.
