About The Series
The latest opportunity for Georgians to explore southern history through the eyes of their rural churches is “Saving Grace,” which will premiere on Georgia Public Broadcasting on Sept. 10 at 9 p.m. The six-episode series will focus on the remarkable stories and historic architecture of churches across the state. The final episode features an exclusive conversation with President Jimmy Carter. New episodes will air on Mondays at 9pm and re-air on Saturdays at 10:30am.
“Saving Grace will tell the stories of the great people that settled Georgia after it was founded in 1733...little known stories that helped shape the society in which we now live,” said Sonny Seals, chairman and co-founder of Historic Rural Churches of Georgia. “Whether they are nearby or have moved away, Georgians continue to be fascinated by the history of these churches and the communities they define.”
