These Sunday classes meet at 10:10 a.m. unless otherwise noted.
OLD FASHIONED SUNDAY SCHOOL Child Hall Canon George Maxwell continues a series focusing on what Paul, the apostle, was actually doing and why. All are welcome. You will find a light heart, warm welcome, and good coffee!
IMMORTAL DIAMOND: THE SEARCH FOR OUR TRUE SELF Room 239 Join Canon Carolynne Williams for a discussion of Richard Rohr's book, Immortal Diamond: The Search for Our True Self. Rohr writes: “We are all looking for an immortal diamond: something utterly reliable, something loyal and true.” II John 2 reminds us of the “truth that abides in us,” but most of us know little about this, so we end up as St. Augustine admits: “Late have I loved you! You were within, but I was without.”
ADULT CONFIRMATION CLASS Adult Confirmation class is held in Room 120 during the 10:10 a.m. Sunday School hour. These classes are open to all, regardless of plans to be confirmed. In the fall, our Living Faith class studied “Falling in Love with the Bible Again.” This is a continuation of that conversation, but moving to “Falling in Love with the Church Again.” Those wishing to participate in this class in order to be confirmed, re-affirmed, or received should contact Canon Lauren Holder, lholder@ cathedralATL.org, and mark your calendars for our April 28 confirmation service. February 24: The Anglican Way of Christianity March 3: The Sacraments and Sacramental Rites March 10: Marking Time March 17: Basic Beliefs March 24: The Church March 31: A Trinitarian Life April 7: What’s next?

SPIRITUALITY RETURN AND REST: A LENTEN QUIET DAY
THE GIFT OF SABBATH
For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: In returning and rest you shall be saved… Isaiah 30:15a
WOMEN'S LENTEN RETREAT: MARCH 29–31
Give yourself a day of quiet and prayer as you prepare your heart for Easter. The Rev. Buddy Crawford, senior associate rector at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal Church, will lead the program. Buddy is a familiar face here at the Cathedral; after his ordination he served on staff as assistant for pastoral care. Lent is often focused on making penance, being sorrowful for failings, and confessing sins - what we think of as the work of repentance. However, the words in Hebrew “teshuvah” and Greek “metanoia” translated as repent literally mean “to turn” or “to return.” The parables in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures invite us to change directions in our hearts and minds. This “turning” is the first step that leads us back to fullness of life in God. The day will include time in silence and meditation, praying the scriptures, walking the labyrinth, and other creative activities. The Quiet Day will take place in the Lanier House on the Cathedral campus, 9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, March 16. The cost is $20 and includes lunch. Please register at cathedralATL. org/quietday or by contacting Jeannie Mahood, jmahood@ cathedralATL.org or 404-365-1031.
“Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy” Exodus 20:8 Many of us long to slow down, rest, and set time apart for God, and yet we find it increasingly hard to observe the commandment, or to receive God’s gift, of sabbath. Join other women from the Cathedral this weekend, as we reflect on sabbath, learn from its wisdom, and, most important, simply keep sabbath together. In the beautiful setting of St. Mary’s Retreat Center in Sewanee, Tennessee, and in the sabbath spirit, there will be plenty of time to rest, play, enjoy the outdoors, and be in fellowship with God and one another. The retreat will be led by the Rev. Cathy Zappa, canon for education and worship, and Jeannie Mahood, program coordinator for spirituality. Costs for the weekend, which cover lodging and meals, are $282 (private) and $225 (shared/double). The deadline for registration and payment is February 25. Register online at cathedralATL.org/lentenretreat, or contact Jeannie Mahood, jmahood@cathedralATL.org or 404-365-1031, for further information. Space is limited so register soon!

BEYOND DESPAIR AND DENIAL: FACING CLIMATE CHANGE WITH MORAL URGENCY AND HOPE Yale Divinity School and the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies present a panel discussion on the intersection of climate change and our faith, Tuesday, March 12 at 7 p.m. in Child Hall. A reception will precede the event at 6 p.m. in the Atrium. Amid dire news of climate change, the question only intensifies: What do we do now? As we sort through the accumulating data and endless politics, a vital element gets lost — the moral dimension of the environmental crisis, and its especially punishing toll on poor communities. The time is now for a galvanizing religious and spiritual witness. Join us for a public conversation focused on ethical solutions and practical strategies for building a movement that meets the climate crisis.
Mary Evelyn Tucker Co-Director of the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale Jon Sawyer Founding Director of the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting Codi Norred Program Director of Georgia Interfaith Power & Light Clifton Granby Assistant Professor of Ethics and Philosophy at Yale Divinity School RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-432-5359; for more information visit divinity.yale.edu/climateyale.
