Bring a dish for potluck sharing Sunday, February 23, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the Lanier House. We will gather for dinner and a facilitated discussion of two engaging articles that further our conversations about race and healing. Both articles feature how members of two churches (one in Baltimore, the other in Newnan, Georgia) have confronted and responded in real time to edgy issues about the legacy of slavery when clergy and parishioners were suddenly confronted with startling discoveries.
- In slavery, her family was owned by his. Now they attend a Baltimore church seeking to atone for its past from the Baltimore Sun, September 12, 2019
- How 17 Outsize Portraits Rattled a Small Southern Town from The New York Times, January 19, 2020 (in particular the story of Rev. Jimmy Patterson, pastor of First Baptist Church of Newnan)
Please assist us with an RSVP on or before February 20 and include in your reply what you would like to contribute to our potluck dinner: main dish, side dish/bread, dessert or beverage. To RSVP or for further info, contact Jeannie Mahood, jmahood@cathedralATL.org or 404-365-1031.
