This brief course will explore how some of our local religious communities have adapted and continued to thrive during the Covid-19 pandemic. From transitioning worship sessions to Zoom and Facebook to providing pastoral care and education while wearing protective gear, we will reflect on how Covid-19 has changed our conceptions of religious connection as well as our theologies.
