St. Mark’s Episcopal invites community to “Let it begin in me. . .”
A service of peace and justice with a conversation centering on racial trust building, affordable housing, poverty, and community policing
Sunday, September 10, 2023 will focus on peace and justice with both worship and bold conversation. At both the 8:30 spoken worship and the 10:30 festival service with Choir, Soloists and Organ, LaGrange mayor The Rev. Dr. Willie Edmondson will serve as guest preacher.
At 9:30 a.m., Mayor Edmondson will be joined in the parish hall by other civic and community leaders for coffee and bold conversations centering around peace and justice. Specifically, the challenges of racial trust building, affordable housing, poverty, and community policing issues in LaGrange and Troup County.
Community leaders engaging in this forum are:
Chief Garrett Fiveashe, Chief of Police – LaGrange, GA
Charlton Askew and Anne Gentry, Racial Trust building
Sherri Brown, Circles of Troup County
Mayor’s Affordable Housing Coalition
Both the 8:30 and 10:30 services, as well as the 9:30 meeting, are open to the public and all are welcome. The community is invited to come exactly as you are.
Kay Durand, of St. Mark’s Worship Committee says “I am so honored to facilitate this conversation at St. Mark’s. There is no place more appropriate to begin these conversations than our churches”.
We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being. We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.
