Convention Speaker:

Dr. Catherine Meeks

We are excited to announce that the convention keynote speaker will be Dr. Catherine Meeks. Meeks is the Executive Director of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing in Atlanta, Georgia. The core of her work has been with people who have been marginalized because of economic status, race, gender or physical ability as they pursue liberation, justice, and access to resources that can help lead them to health, wellness, and a more abundant life. A sought-after teacher and workshop leader, she is the author of six books and one inspirational CD and is the editor of the bestselling Living Into God’s Dream: Dismantling Racism in America.

Book Signing

Dr. Meeks will be available on Friday during convention for a book signing. The diocese will have one of her recent books, The Night is Long but Light Comes in the Morning, available to purchase at convention (cash, check, or card).
