 Adult Christian Formation

All classes meet at 9:30 am in room M-110 unless otherwise noted.

9/15 : Our Seminarian, Colin Brown, will discuss conflict and violence in the Old Testament.
9/22, 29 & 10/6: We are excited to host Dr. Kyle Lambelet, currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Emory University's Candler School of Theology who specializes in teaching on religion and the ethics of nonviolence, organizing and social change. He recently completed his Ph.D. at the University of Notre Dame in the joint program of the Department of Theology and Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. Dr. Lambelet will be leading us in the below discussion:
Conflict as Communion
Conflict is a dirty word. In our homes, in our church, and in our society we often associate conflict with sin, brokenness, and failure. What does conflict have to do with communion? In this three-week adult education series Dr. Kyle Lambelet, a faculty member at Emory's Candler School of Theology, will explore how we understand conflict theologically: not merely as sin or evidence of our finitude, but as the foundation of communion. Beginning with a Trinitarian account of unity in difference, what theologians call perichoresis, we will explore the goodness of conflict theologically and scripturally as well as build skills for engaging conflict in healthy ways.

Name Tag Reorganization

The two name tag spinners in the Commons have been reorganized to be alphabetical across the two fixtures. Please look to the tabs at the top of the spinners to find your nametape alphabetically. 

A special thanks to Toni Graney for her weekly work of organizing the name tags and her work in getting the two spinners reset so that the name tags can be more evenly distributed across the panels.

ReviveATL: Love in Action
an Episcopal Church Revival
January 22, 2020 from 6-8 p.m.
Atlanta University Center

This past year, Presiding Bishop Curry has urged people of faith to follow The Way of Love, fostering a community of people who follow Jesus by forming loving, liberating and life-giving relationships with God, their neighbors, and the environment.

This Way of Love is reflected by the Diocese of Atlanta's purpose statement:
We challenge ourselves and the world to love like Jesus as we worship joyfully, serve compassionately, and grow spiritually. 

What does Love in Action look like in a world that is hurting? ReviveATL invites us to live out our call to serve Jesus and love as he loves the unwelcome, the disenfranchised, the lost, and the found.

All are welcome. Come experience Love in Action. 


Details: Prior to the Revival, food trucks will be available from 4:30-6 p.m. to allow for early arrivals. A more detailed program will be released this fall.
Early bird registration before Nov. 1 includes guaranteed seating. Registration will be opening soon.
