The ELCA-Southeastern Synod is offering a time for all of our rostered ministers to continue our work on combatting racism. We are honored to have Dr. Catherine Meeks lead us in this conversation. Dr. Meeks will speak with us about the current state of racism in our country and how we as Christian leaders are called into racial healing and justice. These conversations are critical for our synod’s work and your own personal work, as we seek to become a more diverse and just beloved community. Bishop Strickland and our synod leadership strongly urge you to make time to be part of this.

Catherine Meeks, PhD, is Executive Director of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing (https://www.centerforracialhealing.org/). Prior to the center's opening she chaired its precursor, Beloved Community: Commission for Dismantling Racism for the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. A sought-after teacher, author, and workshop leader, Dr. Meeks brings four decades of experience to the work of transforming the dismantling racism work in Atlanta. The core of her work has been with people who have been marginalized because of economic status, race, gender or physical ability as they pursue liberation, justice and access to resources that can help lead them to health, wellness and a more abundant life. This work grows out of her understanding of her call to the vocation of teacher as well as her realization that all of humanity is one family which God desires to unite.
Dr. Meeks is a frequent contributor to the Facebook page for the Absalom Jones Episcopal Center for Racial Healing.

Presenters: LDR Trainers- Dale and Jean Peercy, Pastor Morgan Gordy and Pastor Kevin Massey
Disasters come to us in many forms.... natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, wildfires…industrial accidents…or biological disasters such as the Covid 19 pandemic... and some sadly are human-caused such as a mass shooting or bombing… However, it comes, being present and providing emotional spiritual care in a time of disaster is critical. It’s what we are called to do as church, as children of a loving God called to bear that love out into the world for the sake of our neighbor.
This 2 hour webinar focuses on how to render psychological first aid and provide emotional spiritual care in a disaster. We will identify the emotional responses associated with the experience of disaster; we will look at how grief and loss impact the emotional response; we will learn about the phases of disaster, the systems that come into being, the activities and partners that resource a disaster response ... and finally, we will learn about rendering psychological first aid in the aftermath of a disaster.
This is the first webinar in a four part series of webinars designed to provide basic skills and an overview of emotional spiritual care in a disaster. Hope you can come and join us!
