Book Discussion and Author Talk: "Faith

in a Time of Pandemic"

May 21, 12:00 pm or 7:00 pm

How can we respond spiritually when a pandemic hits our nation? How can our faith help us to face our fears, going beyond panic and denial, to hopeful and courageous action?

The Coronavirus is changing everything in our society. It can provoke isolation and self-interested individualism. It can also inspire kindness, generosity, patience, and compassion. Facing the pandemic with God as our companion will deepen our sense of agency as well as peace and move us from self-interest and nation-first to planetary loyalty. This text provides a theological, pastoral, and spiritual pathway to help you, your family, and congregation find your way through the wilderness of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Join us to discuss this book and enjoy a conversation with the author. Bruce Epperly is a UCC minister on Cape Cod. He is also a professor and the author of our fifty books including “Finding God in Suffering: A Journey with Job,” “Become Fire: Guideposts for Interspiritual Pilgrims,” and “Angels, Mysteries, and Miracles: A Progressive Vision.”

On May 21, we will offer two different discussion sections: one at noon, and one at 7pm. Please go to the following link to register and let us know which group you plan to attend. We will send out information about how to access the discussion via Zoom before the event.
