Ep 5 The Deconstruction and Reconstruction of the Pandemic Church


Pastor Courtenay and Pastor Erik are back with more discussion of the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the Church. In this episode, we discuss the deconstruction and reconstruction of several parts of church life: the physical space, worship, programs/governance/committees, theological deconstruction and reconstruction and of course the deconstruction of 20th century baggage. 

Check out The Millennial Pastor blog.

This podcast is sponsored by the Manitoba Northwestern Ontario Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC).

One thought on “Ep 5 The Deconstruction and Reconstruction of the Pandemic Church”

  1. A church is more than just a community centre or a place where the community meet to socialize, it is the house of the Lord where people meet in reverence to worship, to pray, to receive the sacraments of holy communion and to praise His Holy Name. It is a sacred place and should be preserved as such and at all costs as has been done in cities of old or else we loose our identity as Christians. Leaders, ministers , priests and the like will come and go but His Holy Sanctuary must not be relegated to a store front location for drop-ins. I have seen it happen many times in recent years where those who have made the decision to sell their church, hoping that the assets would be turned over into creating something more financially secure, but ending up losing their church, the congregation and the monies from the sale being absorbed by some national organization. You know the story Pastor Erik.
