It’s probably not what he had in mind

Houses of worship have not just been a presence in Atlanta, they have been one of the forces that helped shape and support our community. This week, we tell the tale of Leonard Broughton who came to Atlanta to lead a church and ended up building one of Atlanta’s still-standing historical structures. Each year Broughton’s church hosts thousands of visitors of all denominations and beliefs. If you haven’t attended there’s a good chance you have, at least, heard of Broughton’s church as you will see in this week’s Stories of Atlanta.

Lance Russell is an Atlanta-based filmmaker and media communicator who, for over three decades, has been entrusted by clients to tell their stories. A seasoned producer with an innate ability to cut to the heart of the matter, Lance’s instincts are tailor-made for today’s “media bite” culture. Brief, poignant and always entertaining, Lance’s current passion is bringing Atlanta’s colorful and inspiring past to life with his “rest of the story” style video series, Stories of Atlanta. “History’s best communicators,” says Lance, “have always been storytellers. It’s in our DNA. ‘Once upon a time’ is how we got to where we are now.”

    I don’t get it. I have lived and worked in out of Atlanta since 1987 for 18 years in total. I was curious being a spiritual not religious minded person with a Catholic upbringing. I was curious how come I did not know of this church. After reading your article I now know why. Any minster that was preaching about political issues like prohabition would not be considered, in my view, a man of God. I still believe in the separation of church and state. Please tell me when and how did he welcome people of all faiths.Report
