In a world still reeling from pandemic and in a nation confronting the persistence of racism and systemic injustice, this timely volume brings the wisdom of experience from clergy and other leaders on the frontlines of spiritual care and social advocacy. Contributors respond to questions about what we are learning during these crisesabout God, our nation and world, and ourselves, questions about being the church and about being neighbors. The messages are richly diverse and compellingly relevant, offering biblical insights and prophetic exhortation as well as creative ministry ideas and reminders about self-care. An invaluable handbook for surviving the current crises and uncertain future with compassion, hope, and resilience.
This rich anthology of faith-based writers, compiled by noted Baptist editor Curtis Ramsey-Lucas, offers the practical wisdom of church leaders from across the United States, addressing pastors and other congregational leaders working to overcome the dilemmas placed on them by the COVID-19 pandemic from their own and others experiences. Some of the 18 authors deal with theological responses to crises; others give first-hand experience in mastering the latest technologies to communicate and care for their members; and still others share their knowledge in coping with the social and community issues, in ministry to not only their members, but also their neighbors in meeting physical and spiritual needs. Special attention is given to raising the social justice issues expressed in light of Black Lives Matter, other racial minorities, immigrants, children, and lower-income Americans.Rev. Daniel R. Gangler, MDiv, DMin, retired United Methodist communicator
