Serving God's People for over 130 years!
Welcome to Atonement
Welcome to the Church of the Atonement, an Episcopal church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition. For more than 130 years, Atonement has been a witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our Edgewater neighborhood and in the wider community. Today, we continue in that witness as an active, visionary, and inclusive congregation that serves God through daily prayer and worship, the practice of lifelong Christian learning, and ministries of outreach and justice.
Whoever you are, and wherever you are in your walk of faith, you are most welcome here. Your presence, your faith, your prayers, and your questions are wanted here. Your gifts and your energy are needed here. You are invited to come and see what God has in mind for you here.
God, Mysticism and Human Sexuality
Join us for our regular Sunday morning parish forum on Sun., Sep. 25 at 10 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Miguel Díaz recently published his book Queer God de Amor, which gives a queer reading of the mysticism of St John of the Cross. In this forum he will talk about the issues of that book and the erotic themes that abound in spirituality more generally.
Fireside chats with Father Dan
Father Dan invites you to a time of telling your story and hearing the stories of others, particularly the story of how you came to Atonement and what continues to draw you into this sacred community. These conversations are where we can hear and see God at work in this community. Sign up for one of these dates on the clipboards in Montgomery Hall: Tue., Oct. 4, 1–3 p.m. and Sun. Oct. 23, 1–3 p.m.
