In light of today's racial tensions, our culture is searching for answers. What will it take for us to live in peace among our neighbors? How can we overcome centuries of hurt and division? 

One Heart, One Mind: A Gathering on Racial Reconciliation & Orthodox Christianity will take place Sat., July 9, 2016 at 8 am to 12:00 pm in Atlanta.

St. John the Wonderworker Church
543 Cherokee Avenue SE
Atlanta, GA 30312

Admission is free and will include divine liturgy, a pancake breakfast, and conversations on race and Christianity.

St. John the Wonderworker Church will be hosting the event to mark the integration of the Atlanta chapter of the Brotherhood of St. Moses the Black. This Pan-Orthodox group is best known for the wonderful conferences they sponsor on "Linking ancient African Christianity with the African American experience."

Fr Jerome Sanderson, who is African American Orthodox Priest and a founding member of the Brotherhood, will be the featured speaker. The subject will be reconciliation between the Races from an Orthodox perspective.
