What does it mean to be a church in the time of COVID-19?
The current pandemic hasn’t just interrupted our ordinary life. It raises questions about what it means to be a church. How are we a church when we are not together? In the coming weeks, you are invited to be a part of theological conversation on the classic depiction of Christian community in Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Life Together. Written during the repression of the “Confessing Church” during 1930’s Germany, Bonhoeffer reflects on the experience of Christian community through his stewardship of a secret seminary. Questions like: how to be alone; how to be together; and how to reconcile our ideals of community with reality all come to the fore, as Bonhoeffer articulates a vision of community strong enough to stand up to the tragedy of his context.
