Atlanta's Episcopal Clergy Renew Their Vows... In A Synagogue

From Atlanta-

It’s “Holy Week,” the week leading up to Easter. And, every year at this time, Episcopal bishops, priests and deacons renew their ordination vows.

The Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta followed that tradition this morning with a ceremony. But one part of the event was very untraditional: instead of a church, the priests gathered in The Temple – Atlanta’s oldest synagogue. 

So how did this happen? It was the idea of Episcopal Bishop of the Atlanta Diocese – the Rt. Rev. Robert Wright.

"The renewal of vows is a great opportunity for me to gather the clergy and for us to make these sacred promises again and again in the places that in fact Jesus would have been," Bishop Wright said.
