The seminary faculty have been consulted regularly by LCC pastors seeking advice on how to balance concerns about public health with the need to provide spiritual care. As most jurisdictions in Canada are allowing churches to gather again for public worship, it is important to think theologically about how to comply with health directives without compromising the faith.
The faculty decided to compile their various pieces of advice and analysis into a Faculty Opinion as a resource to pastors and congregations. They hope and pray that it will serve as an encouragement to faithfulness and an exhortation to “lift up your hearts”.
