On Thursday, April 12, nine parishioners of Church of the Common Ground gathered with their pastor, The Rev. Monica Mainwaring, to learn from the Care and Counseling Center of Georgia's Rev. Brady Radford alongside GCCC’s director Rev. Sandye Mullins. This partnership and opportunity to gain training in peer-to-peer counseling is possible with the generosity of the Episcopal Community Foundation for Middle and North Georgia's (ECF) Small Acts of Charity Grant. Church of the Common Ground is a worshipping community of the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta, meeting regularly through the week for prayer, Bible Study, and service to the community, and always on Sunday afternoons for worship. The pastoral needs within and beyond the community might be met, at times, by these newly trained peer-to-peer counselors. Training continues Thursday, May 3, and the parishioners who participated are excited to continue, and grateful for the opportunity. Thank you ECF and GCCC!
