Robbie Morrison, the Church of Scotland Mission Development Worker for the west of Scotland, along with Michael Harvey and the present Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, Rt Rev Martin Fair, is organising a live Webinar entitled “God’s call in the time of Covid-19”, which will be held on Thursday 3rd September, from 10.00 am -12.00 noon.
Due to Covid-19 there has never been a more important time for Christians to be in contact with those around them. Weeks of self-isolation, economic disruption, disappointment, anxiety, and pressure have impacted our neighbours, friends and families and left many with big questions about life, themselves and even God.
In addition, there are signs that Covid-19 has created a mental health crisis, with more than 1 in 4 having experienced ‘significant mental distress’ according to recent research. Michael Harvey has been encouraging Christians across Scotland with a simple way in which we can connect with the big questions and the distress in our communities. The process is called Acorn and it is a simple and prayerful way for each of us to respond. In this webinar we will hear how this has been working and how we all can get involved. We will also hear from individuals around the country who have been working with Michael during this time, as they share their experiences.
