COVID-19 has shifted much of our work, our worship, our relationships online. None of us expected to still be online almost 6 months after COVID-19 began, and yet here we are.
In this podcast episode Pastor Chelsea talks with Alison Gillmeister on spirituality in the midst of COVID.
Alison is a Catholic and teacher in Washington, D.C.. She’s grateful to all the people God has used to mold her faith over the years, especially those she met while she was a member of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Atlanta. These last few months she has been celebrating the grace received through the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius while adding a new practice alongside Pastor Chelsea.
Tune in for this conversation between two good friends, staying connected through distance and a global pandemic thanks to prayer, music, and Zoom!
