This week I was in a conference call with a colleague in Minnesota. As we discussed the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing we also lamented the lack of connection that this distancing requires. She said something like, “You know, we always talk about six degrees of separation, but that’s not really about separation, it’s about connection. I wonder if there’s a way we could create something called ‘six degrees of connection’?” In this time when we are called to avoid crowds for the safety of our community, how can we find ways to connect?
I invite you in this time of quarantine to take time to reflect. What are you pondering in the midst of isolation? How are you experiencing God in this time? What’s occupying your thoughts and prayers?
If you would like, I invite you to write those reflections and share them on this blog page. Let’s see how many connections we can nurture in this time of disconnection.
