The Regional Council of Churches of Atlanta welcomes churches, faith-based and secular nonprofit organizations, individuals, businesses, and others to join us for fellowship, to network, and to explore ideas and issues of importance to the community. We work together to promote the common good, magnify the work and witness of the church, and help establish the kingdom of God throughout our region, nation, and all of creation.

Prayer for a Pandemic by Cameron Bellm



May we who are merely inconvenienced
Remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors
Remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home
Remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close
Remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips
Remember those that have no safe place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market
Remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home
Remember those who have no home.
As fear grips our country,
let us choose love.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,
Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.
Amen.

Every Friday for over 17 years at the corner of Peachtree and 14th Streets, in rain and sweltering heat, people have stood at lunch time holding signs proclaiming that peace is the way. If you are so inclined you are invited to join them and Stand for Peace.

St. Mary's Sewanee comes to you! Maybe you cannot get to away to a retreat this summer. Perhaps you want just a nugget of inspiration or a daily dose of positivity. They’ve got it for you. Email kylene.mcdonald@stmaryssewanee.org for First Light, a Monday-through-Friday email that is the briefest of morning inspirational messages. One beautiful photograph; one thought (usually only a sentence or two) that will help you start the day with a calm, uplifting message.
