The Check-In: Faith During Crisis

May 21, 2020

Sometimes on these episodes we look at the things that are getting us through - the books, the music, the coping strategies and structures that are helping us get by in a crisis. A big answer to this question for many of us is our faith.

But one challenging aspect of this crisis has been that it comes with public health orders and advice to shut down and isolate, in order to stay safe, just when you need those you love around you and you need your faith community.

So how are our faith communities in mid-Missouri connecting and sustaining themselves and each other during this crisis? And what tough decisions are they making about whether to congregate with their faith community going forward?

In this episode, we have three mid-Missouri faith leaders to talk with us about faith during crisis.

Our guests:

Clyde Ruffin with Second Missionary Baptist Church.

Janna Lancaster with Congregation Beth Shalom, or CBS.

Shakir Hamoodi with the Islamic Center of Central Missouri.

To hear the live show, tune in weekdays at noon. Also, you can leave us a voicemail at 877-532-0971 about how you are handling the isolation during the coronavirus pandemic.
