What does preaching in a season of Advent – a season of faith, hope, and peace – look like while we’re also in a season of illness, economic loss, and other insecurities? Join Rev. Adam Hamilton and our panelists, Rev. Magrey deVega and Dr. Elaine Heath as they discuss these difficult concerns: People are ravaged by loss and disappointment. How can I inspire hope and empathy in our current context? It feels like my congregation is more divided culturally than ever before. What can heal such division? Between the extra work of technology and stress of this year, I feel like I don’t have enough time to prepare for services and other pastoring opportunities. How do we church leaders work together to help each other survive this time?
