Leading Beyond the Crisis
Rev. David Hockett, District Superintendent
In an earlier edition of our District eNews, I shared the phrase, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our world like almost nothing since the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic or the Great Depression. It is a humanitarian, economic, healthcare, educational, political, social, and spiritual crisis like nothing experienced in our lifetime. It has impacted nearly every facet of life including the life of the Church. All of this has happened in the context of increasingly divisive and toxic politics, our ongoing denominational divisions, and the plague of racial injustice. These months of crisis make the future seem uncertain and the path forward unclear.
