A new year brings the opportunity for learning, exploring, and improving the communities around us. Join us for the Lansing Lee Conference, March 22-24, as we explore the topic of “Communities Seeking Justice.” Featuring an array of distinguished speakers and hosted in partnership with the Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations, this year’s conference hopes to tackle some of today’s most pressing issues.
Discover Radical Love and Justice
“This year’s Lansing Lee Conference will focus on how communities of faith can find their roots in God’s hope and work of justice for the world,” says The Rev. Richmond Jones, Director of Formation and Resident Chaplain of Kanuga. “By participating in the radical love of God and following the teachings of Jesus Christ, we can join in the work of restoring and championing the dignity and fulfillment of marginalized people.”
Featured speakers include Dr. Catherine Meeks, Executive Director of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing; The Rev. Ed Bacon, author of 8 Habits of Love and a regular guest host on Oprah Winfrey’s Soul Series; The Rev. Canon Marcus G. Halley, Rector of St. Paul’s Lake of the Isles, Minneapolis, MN and Missioner for Evangelism for the Episcopal Church in Minnesota; and The Rev. Dr. Stuart Higginbotham, Rector of Grace Episcopal Church, Gainesville, GA.
The speakers were carefully selected for their experiences, skills, and wisdom. “This line-up of speakers is gathered to help share stories of how they have experienced transformation through God’s redeeming love and then gone to work,” says The Rev. Jones. Attendees will leave with fresh skills that prepare them to guide positive change within their communities.
Learn in Kanuga’s Peaceful Setting
The two-day event includes an opening presentation, panel discussions and small group workshops. Attendees will also have the opportunity to create an action plan using ideas from the event. Ample time for contemplation, prayer, and holy listening provide a chance for spiritual respite and growth.
“In a time where political groups are competing to see how they can separate our society into obedient supporters, we hope to explore a new way where our identity transcends division and we know ourselves as interconnected children of God who strive towards seeking and serving Christ in all people,” says The Rev. Jones.
