May InterSections – Faith in this time of Crisis

Welcome to the May 2020 Issue of InterSections. People all around the world are dealing with the adverse impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Whilst some have faced unimaginable loss, others have faced the loss of livelihood, and the majority have had to cope with physical restrictions. This issue focuses on some of the concerns posed by Covid-19 and how Christians are coping and maintaining our faith during this time of crisis.

In our Feature article, Benny Tabalujan asks whether the pandemic is God’s will. Christian Bargholz in Food for Thought offers helpful advice on how Christians can maintain their connectedness during a time of enforced social isolation. In Lessons from History, Nathan Holyoak makes inspiring observations about how Christians responded to previous pandemics in history.

Several writers in ChurchScene report on how Australian congregations have responded to restrictions relating to worship and fellowship. Our Interview focuses on a young couple, Cameron and Hannah Payne, who operate on the frontlines in providing healthcare during this crisis. Our Book Review has Christian Bargholz discussing a recently published book by John Lennox: Where is God in a Coronavirus World? Lennox argues, convincingly, that God is right in our midst when we face these moments.

Finally, in our News section, we hear about the annual Belmore Road Family Camp held in Mt Eliza, Victoria. (Many other events were cancelled because of pandemic restrictions.) We pray this issue will be encouraging and be a reminder that God will sustain his people in times of trouble (Psalm 55:22).
