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.
