A Message from our Presiding Bishop
In the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, we are now at another one of those threshold moments when important and significant decisions must be made on all levels of our global community for the good and the well-being of the entire human family. In this moment, I would ask you to allow me to share with you a Word to the Church: What Would Love Do?
Follow the link below and you will find resources ECF has gathered from across the Church, designed to inform and support us through the current COVID-19 pandemic. Included are the most recent messages, resources and recommendations from the Episcopal Church, recommendations from the CDC and WHO (in English and Spanish), and various worship, prayer, and community resources to use during this time. We hope you find them helpful. We join in prayer with our siblings around the world, as we navigate this difficult time together.
Ideas & Resources for Lament and Thanksgiving for Youth and Those Who Minister with Them is a curated resource for individuals or groups (specifically teens and young adults) to name and share experiences of loss, grief, anger, alongside hope and solidarity in the midst of COVID-19. It was created and compiled by The Confirmation Collaborative, a group of Christian formation leaders in The Episcopal Church.
