Shall We Gather At The River?
July’s flooding from hurricane Dennis creates much needed space for prayer, study, reflection and action. Alan Jenkins of the Presbytery of Greater Atlanta’s Caring for Creation Committee shares his experience of those record July rains and what God’s covenant with Noah, humanity, and all other living creatures can mean for us today.

Prayer for the EnvironmentOpen our eyes to see your gracious hand in all your works, and teach us to be more responsible in our stewardship; that, rejoicing in your whole creation,
we may learn to serve you with gladness;
for the sake of him through whom all things were made,
your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
Book of Common Prayer (American, 1979)
Atlanta Beltline Facts
Redevelop and revitalize a 22-mile loop of historic railroad around Atlanta, connecting 45 in-town neighborhoods, many of which have long been divided from each other by railroad tracks and highways
Shape the future of Atlanta’s urban core, ensuring future growth occurs in an attractive and equitable manner
Address Atlanta’s lack of greenspace, creating a linear park that connects 40 of Atlanta’s parks, including over 1,200 acres of new greenspace and improvements to approximately 700 acres of existing greenspace.
Enhance mobility with connections to existing and future transit and activity centers
Offer more than 33 miles of multi-use trails close to Atlanta’s center, creating a true live-work-play community unlike any other in the country
The BeltLine is expected to create more than 30,000 permanent jobs in the next 20-25 years, a job increase that is 50 percent greater than what would be created without the BeltLine. The BeltLine will also generate 48,000 one year construction jobs in the area.
