“The life of our city is rich in poetic and marvelous subjects. We are enveloped and steeped as though in an atmosphere of the marvelous; but we do not notice it.” – Charles Baudelaire
“By the blessing of the righteous the city will be strong.” Proverbs 11:10
Dear Kaleid Ladies,
Today, we are so excited to announce our fall Kaleid Circles. Hopefully as you look at them you will find that one (or more!) sounds like it’s just for you! We would simply love to have you as a part of the Kaleid community in the coming months…we always have a lot of fun, do interesting things, and learn a lot as we seek to follow God with courage into the shifts in our lives and our worlds.
We’re excited for the theme this fall, taken from our Foundations Circle. It is “See the City.” After all, we live here. Our everyday comings and goings are woven into the fabric of greater Atlanta, just as greater Atlanta is woven into us. God has always been a God of place, and we believe that we do well to see our place with clearer vision so that we can love well where we live.
At Kaleid, we believe that…
Our physical land is the place where we notice God’s life and steward God’s gifts. Our local neighborhood is the place where we inhabit a particular story of God at work in the world. And our wider community is the place where our participation in systems can bring God’s blessing to our city.
When it comes to seeing our city, we need clearer vision to see its needs, its reality, and how God is working where we live.
So, this fall we are all about Seeing the City. Four of our six circles are related to the theme, and the other two are contemplative circles where we continue to connect with the faithful love of God, even as we delight in and wrestle with very real aspects of our spot on the map.
Our fall circles include an Atlanta Bike Tour, a book club on Dear White Peacemakers, a Foundations Circle where we look at God’s invitation to See the City more deeply, a circle called Embracing Shifts where we listen to God together as we navigate changes in our lives, a contemplative mornings circle called Dwell, and another great Atlanta option that is TBD.
We hope you’ll scroll through the opportunities on our Circles Page and find a place to connect with this community to see our city together!
