Check-in with your pastoral colleagues and share ideas about congregational care in the time of COVID-19
I've had a couple of ABCRGR pastors tell me they'd love to be able to talk with their pastoral colleagues about what's happening in churches around care and strategies for dealing with the pandemic. I think that's an excellent idea-so let's do it!

I invite you to participate in a conference call with your colleagues. I will pray for you all and we'll have a discussion around strategies you are all enacting in regards to Sunday morning worship, going online, keeping congregation members connected if you've cancelled in-person worship, and how you are keeping yourself healthy-in all ways-during these difficult times.

Because I want everyone to have the opportunity to share, I'm scheduling two calls: Wednesday, March 18, at 7:00 p.m. Eastern and Thursday, March 19, at 7:00 p.m. Eastern. Please complete the Doodle poll at this link to let me know which you plan on attending. You can choose one or the other-or if you'd like to be on both calls to hear from more folks, feel free!
