It is hard to ignore the impact the Coronavirus or COVID-19 has had on the world. Some governments are on complete quarantine, others are only not getting confirmations of positive identifications and looking at limiting the spread of this disease. Within the midst of it, the Church has to step up to the challenge. As a people of faith are not to succumb to the fears of men, but also have a responsibility to our fellow people. Our goal is to bring the hope of the Gospel, not to endanger others because we could not follow simple health instructions. So, how can your church effectively communicate a COVID-19 response?

Politics matter because they impact how we live. None of us are untouched by what happens in society. This would explain why emotions and anxiety can be high particularly during election season. Of course, this might not be true for all people all of the time. However, we can’t ignore their intensity when / as people engage. We thought we’d put together the first ChurchMag politics and elections survival guide to help us navigate those intense times.
Do you track your Bible reading? Have you considered using Notion to track your Bible reading? Well that’s exactly what Theology Nights has set about doing in 2020.
