Hands holding lit candle

As the world progresses through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and experiences great suffering, loss and adjustment to a new normal spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally,  two questions that may be helpful for us to ask ourselves are, “Where is God in all of this crisis?” and “What does He want me to know and to learn about my relationship with him at this time in my life?” To this end, we are providing the articles and podcasts below from various spiritual formation ministries that may be helpful for you to remain spiritually focused and connected to the God in whom we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:27-28) during these challenging times.
