RCW_bishop_225_On Sunday, March 4, we will welcome back to St. Paul’s the Right Reverend Robert Wright, 10th Bishop of the Diocese of Atlanta. Bishop Wright last visited us in April 2015. As before, Bishop Wright will preach at the 9 and 11:15 a.m. services and lead the Adult Forum at 10:10 a.m.

As part of our five-week Lenten series on Unlearning Racism, Bishop Wright will share his perspective in helping the Diocese of Atlanta grow into The Beloved Community.

In 2014 at a Service of Repentance and Reconciliation in his diocese, Bishop Wright said, “You remember The Beloved Community; it’s that phrase that Dr. King popularized. It’s the acknowledgment that practicing the love exemplified by Jesus of Nazareth can, has, will transform ‘opposers’ into friends and bring about miracles in people’s hearts. The Beloved Community seeks to describe the reality that good is created, locally and cosmically when people practice Christian love through reconciliation and redemption.”

Do plan to join us as we welcome Bishop Wright back to St. Paul’s!
