Today, one-year after the explosion of the port in Beirut, Lebanon continues to be affected by multiple crises, including a severe economic crisis. Over the last year, in addition to their immediate response to the explosion, United Church Mission & Service partners, the Middle East Council of Churches, and the Joint Christian Committee for Social Service in Lebanon have continued to support the people of Lebanon in a context where essential goods are out of reach for many people. ow.ly/wO5n50FKBwTPlease keep the partners and people in your prayers today, and make a gift to the Global Emergency Response to help the people of Lebanon access food, shelter, and medical supplies. united-church.ca/social-action/act-now/global-emergency-response [Photo credit: Håvard Bjelland/Norwegian Church Aid]#UCCan #Beirutexplosion #MissionandService ...

What does it mean to be essential?Church and congregation leaders have been asking themselves this since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Peter Youngren, the founding pastor of Toronto International Celebration Church, said that question underpinned Celebration Church’s lawsuit for an exemption to a public health order that allowed only 10 people to gather for indoor worship.“It’s not like, 'You can’t be a good Christian unless you go to Sunday services,’” Youngren told Broadview associate editor Andrew Faiz. In Youngren's eyes, the case was about “equal treatment” for churches. “The box stores being open, is that essential?”Other churches didn't bother waiting for an answer and as a result, found a surprisingly strong sense of connection online. Zoom services have flourished in attendance, far surpassing in-person numbers.Rev. Wendell Gibbs from First Baptist Church said, “Rather than [the church] seeing itself as an essential service, how about seeing that you are an essential servant? ... In this pandemic, how can you still serve but not be part of the problem?”There is one point that many church leaders agree on. As explained by Neil MacCarthy, the director of public relations and communications for the Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto, this pandemic has shown that in times of divisive and tragic crisis, our link to the spiritual remains crucial.“Faith, to many, is essential.”To read more about the ways different congregations have navigated the pandemic’s restrictions, click here: ow.ly/3B2r50FGDhC ...
