Finding our Silver Linings 

Friends, I was watching the opening worship service for our first ever virtual Biennial Mission Summit last night and the question was asked What have been the Silver Linings that have come out of this pandemic? And I wanted to the pose that very question to you.

What silver linings have come about in your church as a result of having to pivot due to the pandemic brought about by Covid-19?

I would like to share your silver linings with the MABC family through upcoming editions of the BodyBuilder. So please send me an email letting me know what silver linings you have discovered in the last year and a half.

Even as churches reopen, not all members can return to church.

As we all have experienced over the last year, being homebound is difficult and isolating.

Even though some of us are starting to return to church or have plans to return soon, many of your members will continue to remain homebound — just like before the pandemic.

What can we do?
