In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Chandler Vannoy are joined by Tim Keller, founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan and author of The Reason for God, The Prodigal God, and the How to Find God Series. They discuss how lessons learned while serving in New York City after 9/11 can be helpful in response to the current COVID-19 situation.
“Right now, a lot of our cultural idols are being smashed.”
“How do we minimize the damage of this situation to our ministries and also how do we capitalize on the situation to minister?”
“This is not like the 2008 recession. This is not like 9/11 in New York City. These are all somewhat unique, but they are all cataclysmic.”
“After 9/11, we knew that 14,000 small business went away overnight and all the people that worked their lost their livelihood. We put out word that if you could prove you worked there we could help.”
“It’s going to take time, but be looking for ways to step in and if you are praying for it, the Lord will show them to you.”
