Video: Atlanta Airport Chaplain

The Diocese of Atlanta reports on the ministry of the Rev. Donna S. Mote, missioner for innovation and engagement, and her ministry at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport:

She’s distributed ashes to mark the beginning of Lent, helped direct frazzled travelers to the right terminals, and accompanied those who are grieving. She’s also participated in honor guard ceremonies as the remains of service members are carried home.

“I especially pay attention to those people that most folks, including passengers in the airport, don’t really pay attention to — custodial folks, fry cooks, people you only really see if you’re paying attention,” she said. “There’s the world in grief, there’s the world in joy –— really, the whole world is passing through there.”
