The Covid-19 pandemic and Canada’s isolation response caused all religious organizations to close their physical services. Some groups were ready for the change because they had already been broadcasting certain services. Other congregations struggled to reach out. Religious and community leaders know that their function is as much pastoral (caring for the people) as it is theological (spreading and reinforcing the core messages of the faith), so not only pulpit services but also coffee chats and social gatherings are shifting to online. Considering FUFON’s May theme of “Theologically Alive,” what do we want from our congregation in normal times, and how did that change in pandemic time? How do we keep the chalice flame illuminated?
