(THE STILLBRIDGE PROJECT) - EFFECT OF COVID 19 ON OUR OUTREACH EVENTS 2020
'' The Stillbridge Project focus is reaching out but due to COVID 19 all came to standstill.
With stead rising in deaths globally it will take some time before us human congregate freely again.
POINT TO PONDER - COVID 19
In the midst of all of the headaches and heartaches of the COVID-19 pandemic, one blessing is that the reality of our need for each other is becoming more real to us. The fact that we can’t fulfill the Great Commission by ourselves is more intensely felt now than ever, when we are in lock down, when we can’t leave our homes, when churches can’t meet, when outreach events can’t be held, when missionaries can’t be sent, when we can’t even have a cup of coffee with someone with whom we want to share the hope of Jesus!
So we have an incredible learning opportunity and reset opportunity. We desperately need each other in order for the hope of the nations to go to the nations. How does this happen in our new reality? That’s what we need to figure out together! In our season, and possibly not just a season but in this new post-COVID-19 mission era of decreased mobility and increased digital connectivity, how do we collaborate for the sake of the gospel?
There is no textbook here. Everybody knows that nobody knows what to do. We need new-wineskin thinking and strategizing and action. I don’t think we realize the extent to which our planning and organizations are based on old wineskin barriers and categories. For example, most church community groups are organized based on geography. The concept of community needs to be re-imagined—not defined by the limitations of physical location and space—but the community as relationships without any more geographic borders or commute time. The same goes for community outreach.
We need a re-imagining of place, of space, of presence; of love, of outreach, of community.
