Reconciliation: From Africa to Atlanta

Our next Atlanta emergent cohort gathering will be held on Tuesday, July 31st @
Salsa Havana near Ormewood Park. The conversation will begin at 8pm. You'll want to come hungry if you like Cuban food--es sabroso! Our topic this month deals with reconciliation, patriarchy, and emerging communities of faith. I will be sharing stories from my participation in the Amahoro Africa gathering in May. Specifically we'll want to be asking one another what reconciliation looks like in communities of faith. Where do we need to seek reconciliation here in Atlanta? How can we be ambassadors of reconciliation amongst other faith communities around the world?

If you have time, read this short article by Volf before coming.

About Us

You're a part of a bigger conversation, a bigger story of God's creation unfolding and realizing it's Creator's dreams in the clue of Jesus. Gather monthly to re-imagine how we can best participate locally in this conversation, story, dreams. This is an Emergent Cohort meeting to flesh out four commitments: to God in the way of Jesus, to the Church in all its Forms, to God's World, and to One Another. This is a theological conversation for any practitioners in the way of Jesus.
