Rev. Robin Jacobson gives an update on how the COVID-19 epidemic is affecting Trinity United Church in Vernon, BC. Robin talks about a planning group who are engaged in how church will be in the days to come.
Our Next steps are:
- Next Meeting: We will be meeting again on Wednesday Aug 5 and not at the end of July as previously discussed. Due to the recent rise in Covid-19 infections we will be meeting online, by zoom, and not in person, also as previously discussed. You would be very welcome if you feel you would like to be part of this or any future conversations. Please just let Jillian in the office know and we will be sure to include you.
- Homework: We will be doing our best to answer at least two questions at that meeting:
As a Christ-centered, United Church of Canada, faith community in Vernon BC
‘WHY EXACTLY ARE WE HERE?
How do we apply our God-given purpose specifically
to this Covid-19 exposed context in which we find ourselves?
‘WHO ARE WE?’
We will attempt a SWOT exercise to discern what we understand to be our
Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats.
All of our homework, then, is please to begin thinking about how you may want to respond to these questions.
