Hi subscriber,

Here's a thought, a quote, and a resource I wanted to share with you this Thursday.

As Mark Sayers points out, the pandemic didn’t create a crisis. It helped to reveal a crisis that will not end when the pandemic is over.

We face two urgent tasks.

One is to prepare ourselves for what may be a sustained period of uncertainty. Things aren’t going back to the way they were. We will need to create and sustain rhythms of trust and work that help us through hard times, an important skill at any time.

We’ll also have to help churches recenter on what matters most. Refocusing on the core doctrines and practices of the church is always important, but even more so in times of uncertainty.

The good news: God isn’t worried. That sounds like a cliché, but it counts for a lot.

“The best protection one can have from the devil and his schemes is a humble heart.”

(Jonathan Edwards)

I’m late to the party, but I read Carolyn Weber’s book Surprised by Oxford while on vacation. It’s one of the best books I’ve read in ages. If you’re looking for some good summer reading, check it out.
Thanks for reading!
