Another Contemplating Covid-19 Initiative from BGST
Online Prayer + Spiritual Formation
Let God hover over your chaos.The Chinese word for "crisis" consists of two characters - danger and opportunity. In these challenging times, it is easier to see danger rather than to discern opportunity. Where is God in the midst of this? Pray with scripture and discover the essential disposition for discernment in a time of crisis, and how creation may emerge from chaos.
