2020 will be remembered for the pandemic, Black Lives Matter and Brexit. 2020 brought losses, grief, financial problems, lockdown, loneliness, missing loved ones, disappointments, cancellations, home-schooling, anxiety, depression and travel problems. Short-term overseas trips were cancelled and some short-term mission programmes have closed completely. There were also positive times – perhaps more time to rest, listen to God and enjoy family. There were many acts of kindness, and community support. And we used Zoom (you can decide whether that is a positive or a negative!)
In this event, there will be time to:
Look inward: Tony Horsfall will help us reflect on how 2020 has impacted us, the care providers
Look outward: Hear research on how 2020 impacted mission families (Gill Bryant)
Look upward: Listen to what God is saying as we move forward (with a reflection led by Tony Horsfall)
