Episcopal Diocese of Georgia / Spring Clergy Conference (2019)
- Event Start DateApril 29, 2019
The Clergy of the Diocese of Georgia will meet April 29-May 1 at Honey Creek for the Spring Clergy Conference. Dr. Catherine Meeks of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing in the Diocese of Atlanta will be our speaker. A sought-after teacher and workshop leader, Dr. Meeks brings four decades of experience to the work of transforming the dismantling racism work in Atlanta. The core of her work has been with people who have been marginalized because of economic status, race, gender or physical ability as they pursue liberation, justice, and access to resources that can help lead them to health, wellness, and more abundant life.
Leading a study of Just Mercy in Lent (see above) is the best way to prepare for her presentation. This event is required of all priests in a full-time call and encouraged for those serving part-time as well as the deacons of the Diocese.
