2020 & 2021 have revolutionized the way we live our lives, from habits as simple as shaking hands and hugging are now under scrutiny. The season did not just throw a spanner in the works, it formatted life as we knew it.

One area that was greatly affected was…still is relationships; how we relate with one another at home, church, office and in our neighborhoods. At the onset of Covid 19, physical interactions or face time became outlawed and suddenly we were in very unfamiliar grounds.

The state of human connections as we knew it was severed. Communities that thrived on physical meetings like churches though not the exception were throw into disarray; businesses too were affected, some more than others.

Though one thing was clear, there needed to be a revolution in how we connected going forward.

Sadly, it was not going to be a shiny new invention we were going to employ but tools that have been with us all along. Tools which had had their importance and effectiveness downplayed, in some cases even vilified. They have been within our grasp the entire time. i.e. Digital media!!

Were you caught flatfooted as a church/ministry, non profit or business?? What have you done since to correct your situation? How can I be of help??
