The coming crisis for churches
I’m a part of a few clergy groups on social networking sites. They exist as a much needed resource and a place for clergy to speak plainly with each other. Some folks offer humor. Some tell stories of awesome things that happen in their congregations and how they saw God at work — those are pretty great! And for some, these are places they can receive pastoral care and a listening ear from other clergy — also very needed.
Since the pandemic started, it is has been difficult to read some of the posts, but I read them anyway.
