In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Chandler Vannoy are joined by Rasool Berry, teaching pastor and host of “In Pursuit of Jesus.” They discuss the mission of the church during the pandemic and why reflecting on the past is useful.
“What I learned was that Jesus is more glorious and more worthy of worship after I went through this journey than I even had an appreciation of before.”
“I thought how amazing would it be for us as a church for people to not be able to talk about the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 without talking about the church’s response.”
“For every hand that you can’t shake, that should be a phone call or text that you make.”
“When we are able to gather and relax these social distancing policies we are always going to make available online our resources.”
“More than ever, being aware of what’s happening in our city, in our nation, around the globe, is just part of what has to happen.”
“We have most of the New Testament because someone was writing correspondence to someone they could not physically be with.”
“That tension of intentional time and also intentional distance has been an important balancing act at home.”
“Reflection, in general, is such an important and under-utilized discipline right now because we live in an information age, but information is not the same as wisdom.”
“I see sanctification as us allowing God to help us fully realize who He has made us to be, not just simply trying to become more like somebody else.”
