As I write this from Charlottesville, Virginia, we’ve been under stay-at-home orders for almost a month. Virtual church continues and while I am grateful for the technology that allows many of us to be connected through cyberspace, I deeply miss being in the same physical space with the Body of Christ.
As soon as the public health crisis required us to refrain from gathering, the Outlook began to explore ways we could support individuals and congregations as they quickly adapted to new ways of being the church. Knowing that our faith is critical in times of challenge and our faith communities are indispensable in caring for each other and the world, we are creating resources that strengthen ongoing ministry being done in innovative ways. To that end, you can find weekly liturgies for worship, Scripture commentary, Christian ed and family faith formation activities, devotion videos and more on our website or in your email inbox.
Our staff meets every Wednesday to discuss how we can best use our platform and resources to support and equip you in this challenging time. Our small size enables us to be flexible and responsive. Our independence allows us to create and curate content that is timely and relevant. We pray our ministry strengthens and facilitates yours.
During this time of COVID-19, we have made much of our content available for free, knowing the importance of accessibility no matter the ability to pay. We would, however, ask you to consider making a donation as you are able. Any amount helps us continue our work. As an independent publication we receive no funds from the denomination. Subscription and ad revenue, while important to our operating budget, are not enough to cover our costs. Donations are critical to sustaining our mission. Hence, we ask you to support us.
Many of you have been kind enough to contact us and express your gratitude for the resources and content we produce. We are encouraged by these messages. We are profoundly grateful to be in ministry with you. We appreciate every gift, no matter the amount, as every donation reminds us that our work makes a difference in yours.
Grace and peace,
Editor, the Presbyterian Outlook
