Practising in a Pandemic: Lay Empowerment during Covid-19
August 31, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
A Conversation on the Changing Dynamic of Religious Experience During the Covid-19 Pandemic.
The Coronavirus pandemic has had a dramatic effect on the ways in which people in Scotland and around the world can practise their faith.
One prominent result has been the increased involvement of ordinary people in their faith communities – as they have taken on new roles and helped their communities to continue to thrive in difficult circumstances.
Join us to hear three exciting speakers share their experiences as lay members of diverse communities who have identified opportunities for growth and development alongside the inevitable pain and hardship that Covid-19 has wrought.
There will be opportunities for Q&A and further dialogue in small break out rooms. During the discussion period there will be time to reflect on your own faith experience and the experience of your community within the changing dynamic of religious practise over the last two years.
This event is delivered with support from the University of Glasgow’s School of Critical Studies through their undergraduate student placement scheme.
