Pilgrimage Through the Pandemic
How can the church help care for and support people who are on their own Pilgrimage Through the Pandemic?
Join the Bishop of Edinburgh, the Rt Rev Dr John Armes in conversation with the Rev Karen Georgia Thompson, the United Church of Christ Associate General Minister as she describes her Pilgrimage through the Pandemic following the sudden death of her father due to COVID19, his burial, her own experience of the illness and the aftermath of these experiences.
Her Pilgrimage involved death, grief, considering one’s own mortality, illness, exhaustion and the love and care received from others. She considers the role of faith, hope and community in the midst of the crisis. In particular how do those who have lost loved ones to the illness find ways to mark their death? How can the church help care for and support people who are on their own Pilgrimage Through the Pandemic?
