‘#InThisTogether’ is invaluable handbook for surviving current crises, uncertain future

VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 11/23/20)—In a world still reeling from pandemic and in a nation confronting the persistence of racism and systemic injustice, the timely “#InThisTogether: Ministry in Times of Crisis” offers the wisdom of experience from clergy and other leaders on the frontlines of spiritual care and social advocacy.

Contributors respond to questions about what we are learning during these crises—about God, our nation, ourselves, neighborliness and the church. The messages are richly diverse and compellingly relevant, offering biblical insights and prophetic exhortation as well as creative ministry ideas and reminders about self-care. The book is an invaluable handbook for surviving the current crises and uncertain future with compassion, hope and resilience.

The book is edited by Curtis Ramsey-Lucas, editor of The Christian Citizen, a digital-first publication of American Baptist Home Mission Societies. In addition, he is editor of The Christian Citizen Weekly e-newsletter and host of the Justice. Mercy. Faith. podcast. His articles have appeared in The Washington Post, Religion News Service, Sojourners, Baptist News Global and Good Faith Media.
