Sara Miles is coming to Atlanta

I’ve just received word that Sara Miles will be in Atlanta, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, the weekend of April 12-13. On Saturday, the 12th, she and her colleague Paul Fromberg are leading a program on the connection between worship and service, from 9 AM to 2 PM; she returns to St. Luke’s the following morning to teach an adult education class.

If you don’t know Sara’s wonderful book, Take This Bread, read my review of it here. Better yet, just get the book. Her website is worth a look-see as well.

Here’s the blurb about this event from the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta’s newspaper:

“TAKE THIS BREAD” author Sara Miles, an internationally known journalist and atheist turned Episcopalian, will talk about an innovative program for feeding the hungry from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 12, at St. Luke’s, Atlanta, 435 Peachtree St. Miles and the Rev. Paul Fromberg of St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church in San Francisco will lead the workshop. Tickets are $15 per person; lunch and materials are included. The day will focus on an innovative program of feeding people, literally over the altar, and the implications of sharing food and sharing Eucharist for Christians. The workshop will end with an innovative Eucharist. Information: Katherine Avery at 404.873.7624 or

St. Luke’s is located at 435 Peachtree St. NE.
