The Coronavirus Faith Capsule
Introducing the Coronavirus Faith Capsule
After just over four months, it is so lovely to welcome you back to the Cathedral for the public celebrations of Mass. A lot has happened over the last few months, and things will continue to be strange and unfamiliar for the foreseeable future. I was listening to Radio Four last week, and on the programme Loose Ends the presenter interviewed a man who had started an initiative with teenagers called ‘the Coronavirus Time Capsule’, which has given teenagers a unique platform to channel their energies and anxieties of this pandemic by reflecting upon their own experiences of lock-down.
As we, as a community of faith, arrive at a new transition moment – returning to the public celebration of Mass for the first time – I thought that this may be a good experience to create our own ‘Coronavirus Faith Capsule’, where we are able to reflect upon our own experiences of lock-down within the context of living out our faith, and how our faith has grown/changed/been tested as a result of this experience.
Would you like to offer your voice and contribute?
Do you have any reflections or images of how you lived out your faith during lock-down which you would like to share?
Coming Up… The Next Step
My plan is to create and share a Coronavirus Faith Capsule podcast series; interviewing and chatting with people from different walks of life about how their faith has been impacted and changed by the lock-down. All of us have a story to share, and invaluable experiences to record for future generations.
