This is a day late this week. Apologies! Here are some helpful links I came across this past week.
My friend Cynthia wrote about the impact of the social distancing on mental health. Working in a retirement community, I wonder about the long-term impact on older folks who have been isolated. Cynthia writes about several different groups, and her article is well worth reading.
What will re-opening look like for you? Sarah Eekhoff Zylstra writes about what took place when five churches reopened recently.
Glenna Marshall writes about the need for ordinary faithfulness in a post that every pastor should read.
Meghan Hill writes about what we need to know about the church in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Many people have written about missing gathering as a church. Here is a reminder that “Physical Presence is A Spiritual Gift.”
Several years ago I preached through Judges. When we read some of the accounts in Judges we wonder what on earth we are to think about what happened. Credo Magazine just began a series on Reading Judges Theologically. You may want to follow it here. And by the way, put Judges on your “Preach Soon” list.
I hope you will find something helpful to your ministry. Have a good week!
