Whoever you are, wherever you are on your journey, we welcome you to this place and to this table. We welcome you to partake of the grace and mercy of God, because we are all children of one God. Part of the heart and identity of this place is and has been radical inclusivity, at times pushing boundaries to include those on the margins, those who are voiceless, or those who have been oppressed or made invisible by our society and churches.

At St. Bartholomew’s, we are not all the same. We have come from different backgrounds, families, cultures, and religious and political upbringing.

We are multi-racial. We are straight and gay. We are single and coupled. We are variously abled. We are young and… older. We are different shapes and sizes. We are different. We are not all the same, nor need we be the same, nor should you. We support and celebrate diversity, knowing it enriches us; and makes for a roomy church.

What binds us together is our desire to be a worship and faith community based on our baptism into the body of Jesus Christ and the vision to which we believe that vision calls us: a life which is transformative for us and thereby for the world around us.

St. Bartholomew’s is currently in a time of transition following the retirement of our Rector of 14 years, the Reverend Mac Thigpen, at the end of April, 2016.  With guidance from the Bishop’s office of the Diocese of Atlanta and the parish vestry, and under the leadership of Senior Warden Juliana Lancaster, the parish is beginning the process of calling an Interim Rector.  Following the hire of an interim,  a search committee will be formed, a parish profile created, and the the search process for a new rector undertaken.  During this time, the Vestry and Staff continue to do the work they have been called to do and are here to serve. Follow updates in the process through the resource link on the web page.

Come knowing that there is room for you, for me, room for us all in the hospitality of Jesus. I have heard it said that heaven is complete unity in unimaginable diversity. Complete unity in unimaginable diversity. May we come finding room in our own hearts and minds for the prayer of God’s kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven, even when it may seem distant from us in time and space, but by which we are mysteriously linked by the love of God and the miracle of being.

A fellow traveler on the journey,

The Rev. Beverley Elliott,
Senior Associate
Rector
