Bishop Lucinda Ashby delivers the latest message (below) from her home office between Zoom meetings. She continues a virtual visitation schedule with congregations, sharing online worship and coffee hours. “This is not business as usual, and we cannot carry on the way that we are accustomed,” she explains. “On the other hand, I am so grateful for the fact that we have technology that allows us to communicate in this way, and to gather in virtual worship. I’m very grateful for the doctors, nurses and epidemiologists who are working at great personal risk to eradicate the effects of the coronavirus.” Bishop Lucinda examines the balance between thanksgiving and lament during this time and invites us to explore the spiritual relocation and shared human experience of the Psalms.
