[Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta] Amid all of the public turmoil about immigration, how do Christians respond in a way that allows them to live into their baptismal promise to respect the dignity of all persons and the imperative from Jesus to love our neighbor as ourselves?

That is one of many questions participants will wrestle with during an August 30 discussion at The Cathedral of St. Philip, 2744 Peachtree Road, N.E, Atlanta, GA 30305. The session, scheduled for 1 p.m. – 3 p.m., is free and open to the public. It will be streamed live at stphilipscathedral.org/stream.

The event will include presentations by priests and Christian lay leaders from the Atlanta area actively involved in responding to the needs of our immigrant neighbors.

Episcopal bishops Robert Wright of the Diocese of Atlanta and Jose McLoughlin of the Diocese of Western North Carolina will provide theological guidance and practical ways Christians can respond to this hotly debated issue.

There will also be information provided by an attorney specializing in immigration law. The event is free and open to the public.
