Online services, events, and videos offer faith leaders a gift of spiritual nourishment. With the abundance of resources available, we asked people in the Faith+Lead Learning Lab for recommendations. Here are some highlights to dive into.
Learning – Reading More Barth Together
A minister told us about a three-part series from Will Willimon and Stanley Hauerwas called “Reading More Barth Together”. The first part is found here on Willimon’s blog.
Listening – The Many
Several people have been listening to The Many, a music collective offering weekly music of lament. These live events are hosted on Facebook and YouTube on Wednesdays at 8 PM CT.
Embracing Justice – Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man
A lead pastor let us know about Emmanuel Acho’s series on YouTube, “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man”. Acho provides education and information on racism, social injustice, and related topics.
Reaching Out – Sermon Sharing
One pastor shared that she reached out to other preachers and asked them to send her their most powerful, Scripture-soaked sermons. Being able to go in and read these sermons when she most needed them made a difference.
Praying – Virtually Together
We heard about online prayer and worship services that were impacting people’s daily lives. One congregation is offering a “Pray as You Go” weekly spiritual event over Zoom. This is a short service of music, Scripture, and prayer. Another person recommends Morning and Evening Prayer from Canterbury Cathedral, which includes bonus drop-in visits from a delightful cat.
