Psalms for Divine Protection from COVID-19

May 28th, 2020|

The Psalms have gained prominence among Christians since the rise of COVID-19. Psalm 91 has been particularly popular. This is understandable given that it speaks of how God will save you "from the deadly disease" (v. 3, NLT), and the assurance that "pestilence" and "plague" (v. 6, NIV) "will not come near you" (v. 7). How are we to interpret such claims in the Psalms? What are we to think [...]

April 21st, 2020|Tags: , , , |

I’ve included a link to the video interview here. https://youtu.be/471tSmOAhLo Over the next couple weeks, I’ll unpack here some of [...]

Leading through the COVID-19 Crisis – Lessons on the Run

April 9th, 2020|

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everybody. Within the span of a week, it put our small, non-profit organization into a cash-flow crisis, forcing us into temporary wage reductions and layoffs to reduce expenses initially by approximately 66% and requiring us quickly to identify new ways to generate income. As we've been forced to make quick, high-consequence decisions and to take unplanned, unhappy actions over a remarkably short period, I've [...]

How has COVID-19 impacted Horizon?

April 6th, 2020|

An open letter to our constituency   The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everybody. It's changed our everyday behaviours, disrupted our regular social patterns, and affected our spiritual and mental health. In the span of one week, Horizon went from a vibrant on-campus community to a locked-down and mostly empty facility. We don't take for granted how seamlessly we were able to transition from in-class to exclusively online course [...]
