From the heart - conversations with God online, and offline. A reflection by Marianne Ejdersten, Director of Communications for the World Council of Churches, Geneva, Switzerland
The year 2020 is one etched forever in our memories. The unimaginable happened when a virus seized the world. Vulnerability became the norm and fiction became reality. Overnight life became more precious for all of us, the world’s billions. Normality took a break; frustration set in. Everything we took for granted went on hold. Society closed; offices shut; schools halted; churches sealed their doors; the hemorrhaging of money accelerated from the public purse. Anxiety and the grip of fear cripple as the most vulnerable face worsening exposure. The pandemic is hitting the world hard. So, being a church in a time of vulnerability has huge relevance. As a present church, God’s presence in the world precedes all. It is in God that we live, feel, and exist. The mission of the church is to provide space for that presence at all of life’s stages.
