None of us could have imagined that at the start of this year we would be in national lockdown again as Covid 19 continues to have a devastating effect on the UK and all over the world.
As we know, all areas of life have been drastically affected including of course church life. It has been a monumental shift for many in ministry to try an adapt to new ways of doing church and moving to online services. Whether high tech or the most basic provision it is proving exhausting and challenging to preach and pastor in new and innovative ways.
Here at ESPS Ministries we are constantly looking to produce and source articles that will be helpful and inspirational for you in ministry and in life. Follow the link below to excellent FREE resources from Global Leadership Network where they have pulled together a variety of resources to encourage and equip pastors and leaders during this pandemic. It’s always helpful to hear form others with their insights and experience.
As well as great leadership and inspirational links on the page, I’d like to draw your attention to the Max Lucado link “Anxious for nothing” for a free bible study based on his book of the same title. These will be so helpful, especially if we are feeling stressed and anxious.
I cannot recommend his book highly enough. It’s a wonderfully kind, loving and encouraging book full of his own stories as well as biblical examples to build us up in our faith and help keep our eyes on Jesus.
