The World Council of Churches says’ We are conscious that flattening the Covid-19 curve has realized its own share of challenges, which emphasize the fissures in the way society is ordered. There has been an increase in internet usage in this season of Covid-19 isolative measures. How has that affected you? Has this been a blessing or an inconvenience? How are you communicating with your congregants and ministry partners? How has your region fared in dealing with the various add-on implications of flattening the curve – domestic violence, unemployment, food scarcity, mental health and suicide challenges, crime and violence, inability to gather together in one physical place as a worshipping community, isolation and containment, infections, and death? Many of you are already actively involved in effecting change, and we welcome your stories of resilience, solidarity and hope.
