ABSALOM JONES CENTER FOR RACIAL HEALING
The Diocese of Atlanta is proud to be home to a new resource for the worldwide Episcopal Church. Located at the Atlanta University Center among Morehouse, Spelman and Clark Atlanta campuses on the Westside of Atlanta, the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing will provide parishes and dioceses around the world with the support to address racism head-on through racial reconciliation and healing. The resource and training center is housed in what was known as the historic Absalom Jones Episcopal Center and Chapel building. The creation of the Center aligns with The Episcopal Church and our Diocese’s commitment to reach across the borders and boundaries that divide the human family of God.

VIDEO OF DIOCESAN DAY ON IMMIGRATION
Amid all of the public turmoil about immigration, how do Christians respond in a way that allows them to live into their baptismal promise to respect the dignity of all persons and the imperative from Jesus to love our neighbor as ourselves?
That is one of many questions participants wrestled with during an August 30 discussion at The Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta, GA.

AFTER WORDS | APRIL 14, 2017
YUCK | MARCH 24, 2017
Mud and spit caused a man to see. That’s the story. – “Yuck” is the second video message in a series from the Bishop Rob Wright that we hope can inspire your self-reflections during this season of Lent. #GrowforLent #LoveLikeJesusEDA #LoveLikeJesus. See all of the Bishop’s Lenten For Faith devotionals here.
SEE | MARCH 8, 2017
You can talk about God, Jesus says, without actually seeing God’s movement. – “See” is the first video message in a series from the Bishop Rob Wright that we hope can inspire your self-reflections during this season of Lent.
SUICIDE PREVENTION | SEPTEMBER 7, 2016
“In the Diocese of Atlanta, we are love, acceptance, and hope. Here we value each and every person. I challenge all of us to ask for help when we need help and to listen to those who need to be heard. If you’re hurting, share your story. We’re here for you. We love you.” – Bishop Robert Wright
INWARD REFLECTION | FEBRUARY 12, 2016
A lenten message from Bishop Robert Wright: “I invite you to the keeping of a holy Lent. How can we set aside time to reflect on what it means to Love Like Jesus?”
LOVE | FEBRUARY 19, 2016
More than anything: Love. What does it mean to love like Jesus? How do we challenge ourselves to change the way we think of love? We strive to love our neighbor. But what does that truly mean and how can we live that out in the world? How do we extend the kind of love, honor and respect we want for our family to both friend and stranger alike?
GRATITUDE | FEBRUARY 26, 2016
What does it mean to be grateful? Let’s challenge ourselves to reflect on those things for which we give thanks. In the business of everyday life, how can we mindfully set aside the time to reflect on all that we have? How do you express gratitude for God’s goodness?
GIVE | MARCH 4, 2016
There is abundant generosity within our own hearts. Let us explore how to give more and how to share God’s love with our family, friends, neighbors and community.
LET GO | MARCH 11, 2016
Letting go is a challenge. Let’s explore how to unburden ourselves and create an open space to receive all the blessings that God can provide.
COMPASSION | MARCH 18, 2016
Good conquers evil. Love overcomes hate. Through the most difficult of times, across time and history — even when it feels as if all is lost – hope flickers just beneath the surface.
EASTER & JOY | MARCH 27, 2016
Let us reflect on and celebrate the sacrifice Jesus made for us and his unfailing love. Over Lent, we’ve learned what it means to let go, to give, to be grateful, to show compassion and to look inward. And, examined not only the ways we already love others, but also on the ways in which we don’t.
GO FORTH | MARCH 31, 2016
Let the exploration into these Lenten themes carry you forward and guide you today and always as we seek to challenge ourselves and the world to Love Like Jesus. Thank you for joining us on this journey. #GrowForLent #LoveLikeJesusEDA
