Reconciliation Efforts Spurs Speaker Series in Venice

VENICE – At the 2017 Annual Convention, the plenary speaker was Dr. Catherine Meeks from the Diocese of Atlanta, who challenged the diocese to help create a Beloved Community that could better deal with racism by ending the fiddling around about issues of race and instead use prayer, dialogue and the Holy Eucharist to help come to new solutions within a Christian framework. Since that session, numerous Beloved Community efforts have sprung up, including this speaker session series in the Venice Deanery.
