The world finds itself in a unique and rare moment in history. Each region, country and community is dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. While each community is experiencing the effects of coronavirus to different levels of severity, we all have one thing in common. We are in a season of waiting. We are all waiting to see what lies ahead on the other side of this crisis.
HOW TO WAIT WITH HOPE-FILLED EXPECTATION
Jewish Voice staff members Ezra Benjamin and Carly Berna speak with Rabbi Joshua Brumbach and Pastor Mike Maiden about the significance of the period we are in right now.
Biblically speaking, the 50 days between Passover and Shavuot (Easter and Pentecost) are always seasons of waiting. We find ourselves in a context – as we did with Passover – to relating to and learning from biblical events in an unprecedented way. We can glean wisdom from the ways the Old Testament Fathers of the Faith and Jesus' disciples waited during this period. They waited in hope-filled expectation that the Lord was going to do great things!
