ABOUT THIS SERIES

In the past few months life as we know it has been turned upside down. We’ve been thrust into a “new normal” of social distancing, medical anxiety and civil unrest. How do we live, even thrive, in the midst of all this change? This six week series will draw upon the treasures of the Christian gospel in addressing topics like: suffering, racism, mental health and isolation. We believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ offers real hope to help us navigate this moment as well as possible. We invite you to join us.

SUFFERING: SUNDAY JUNE 21

Why would a good God allow this pandemic to happen? We bring this all-important question to Jesus and discover a surprising answer.

RACISM: SUNDAY JUNE 28

No justice. No peace. What hope do we have of loving one another when hidden prejudices burn just below the surface? We explore the possibility of unity without uniformity—the family of God made up of every race and language.

HOSPITALITY: SUNDAY JULY 5

No one is an island unto themselves. Yet we don’t want to put our loved ones and neighbours at risk. We discuss how to love one another and show hospitality during a time of physical distancing.

LAMENT: SUNDAY JULY 12

Where do I go with my grief and my sadness? We turn to Psalm 42 to discover lament as a God-given expression for our emotions and the source of Christian hope.

MENTAL HEALTH: SUNDAY JULY 19

Anxiety, depression, substance abuse. Covid-19 is taking a toll on all of us. We open Psalm 27 for a candid conversation about the forgiveness and healing available in the arms of a loving God.

SICKNESS/HEATH: SUNDAY JULY 26

What has this pandemic been like from the perspective of those working on health care’s front lines? We assemble a panel of Christian health care practitioners to discover what this pandemic’s been like from their point of view and  hear stories of how Christ is at work in the midst of suffering.
