Bishop Spong in five-part Atlanta series



The Rt. Rev. John Shelby Spong, liberal Chrsitian, critical thinker, provocative author and speaker, and bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark, New Jersey from 1978 to 2000, will lead a five-part program on Building a New Christianity for a New World, September 16-19, in Atlanta.

Update of August 24

Momentum is building for this historic Atlanta event. The latest news is that the series will be capped with the
unveiling of a portrait of Bishop Spong in the Hall of Honor at the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel at Morehouse College. Placed along with other world leaders, such as Dr. King, Mahatma Gandhi, Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Andrew Young, Jimmy Carter, and others, Bishop Spong is being honored as a prominent modern day Christian prophet defending the civil and human rights of the oppressed and abused around the world today. This special recognition will take place following the Sunday afternoon lecture and discussion with Bishop Spong at the King Chapel at Morehouse, the last of the five part series by Bishop Spong.

You don’t have to be ‘churched’ to join, you simply have to be open to thoughtful dialog that may take you out of your comfort zone, but in a good way if you are open to it!
