Spiritual Care Resources for Religious Holidays
From Ylisse C. Bess, MDiv., Chaplain Shelly Rambo, Associate Professor of Theology, Boston University, comes this booklet on Spiritual Care Resources for Religious Holidays.
In these challenging times, as in difficult times in the past, it is our instinct to gather and share rituals as a way of facing a shared crisis. Unfortunately, social distancing and orders to stay at home make coming together not only impossible but inadvisable. But, finding ways to share the celebration of our spiritual holy days becomes more important than ever.
The Chaplaincy Innovation Lab, with the expert leadership of Dr. Shelly Rambo and Ylisse Cheney Bess, has pulled together this resource guide with ideas for celebrating the holy days of Easter, Passover and Ramadan even when coming together in person isn’t possible. It also contains resources and ideas for those who are spiritual but not religious.
Ways to Keep Your Church Engaged
We are all struggling with isolation. How do we maintain important personal connections during this time of sheltering in place and working to stay well? And how do continue to minister to a congregation, a fellowship, with which we can't physically be present? Please download this resource for keeping congregations engaged in these times of physical and emotional separation.
