REIMAGINING COMMUNITY: Engaging people in virtual space
Religious faith depends upon community. How are we to find and build community in this time of social distancing and church, synagogue, and mosque closures? Rev. Annette Flynn leads this course that will help you connect with people and build community, even when the circumstances seem to make it impossible.
This package includes a one-hour personalized coaching session with Rev. Flynn.
From the introduction:
“The church is in a wilderness. We can’t rely on our structures of in-person gathering, receiving the reassuring hug, the sound of combining our voices together in pray and praise, the deep bonds reinforced in our small groups and Sunday school classes. Pastors are wandering, pivoting, not knowing what their role is when they can’t visit the sick, perform the rites and rituals and liturgies that form and inform the people of God.
“God’s response to the wanderers in the Exodus story was covenant. God reassured the people by making good on the promise to be with them and to supply their needs. Manna, quail, and water from a rock. Wilderness need not be devoid of life-support. It was, and still is, supported and presided over by a life- giving and trustworthy God.
“There is much at stake for your church in this moment. You may be in a wilderness, but you are still required to move. Focus on what you have: technology that allows you to meet virtually, your beautiful brain, your compassionate heart, and God. You are a leader in this once-in-a-century occurrence.”
