We Shall Be Changed: Conversations for Leaders in the Post Pandemic Church
IMEC is offering five opportunities for conversation using the book We Shall Be Changed: Questions For the Post Pandemic Church edited by Mark D.W. Edington. Attached is a short excerpt in PDF prepared by Church Publishing.
As Edington points out in his introduction, two viruses changed life in the past year and a half. The deadly COVID 19 respiratory virus resulted in untold death, fear and isolation. The virus of racism became front page news when George Floyd said “I can’t breathe. “ Edington describes these events as “two simultaneous pandemics linked by the deprivation of breath.” (p. xi)
