The Interfaith Summit: The Role of the Faith Community in Times Like These

Hosted by the Community Council of Metropolitan Atlanta, this summit is Tuesday, December 8, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon at the Interdenominational Theological Center


This summit is for religious leaders of churches, temples, mosques, and synagogues in the metropolitan area, rather than the general public, and will include viable strategies, open dialogue, light refreshments, and purposeful fellowship, as we address three critical community issues.

The agenda will include the following issues:

1. Challenges of Disconnected Youth - Presenter: Mike Masarek, CCMA Board of Directors;

2. The Plight of Young Black Males- Presenter: Robert Yeldell, CEO, People Building People LLC;

3. The Absent Father Syndrome - Presenter: Roosevelt Muhammad, Program Coordinator, Teen Dads/Fulton County Call to Manhood; and
4. Summit Resource Panelist - Bryant Marks, Director of the Morehouse Research Center

After the opening plenary session, presenters will speak from 5-8 minutes on their respective topics, with Dr. Marks assisting with responses to special concerns during the open discussion following each presentation. The open discussions will be followed by break-out sessions, led by the presenters, after which a report-out session with recommendations will conclude the summit.

Prayer for the people of Beirut

Light of new hope

God of refuge,
hear our prayer
as we hold the people of Beirut
in our hearts at this time.
Fill us with compassion
and move us to reach out in love.

In your mercy,
bring comfort to those who mourn,
healing to those who are injured,
shelter to those who are homeless
sustenance to those who hunger.

Give strength to those who are working
to rebuild shattered lives,
and protect those who are vulnerable
especially in a time of coronavirus.

Lead us in your ways
so that together we may bring
the light of new hope
wherever there is destruction and despair.

We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.
