Many of the Christians We Remember Faced Pain and Sickness

For Charles Spurgeon, Florence Nightingale, Mother Teresa, and more, disease defined how they knew God.


For many of the Christians the church remembers and admires, sickness has had a profound role in shaping their shape. Some, like Charles Spurgeon and Martin Luther, personally struggled with chronic illness and pain. Others, like Mother Teresa and Florence Nightingale, responded in bold ways to the call they felt on their lives to attend to the needs of the suffering.


Over the years, Christianity Today has published a number of pieces detailing the ways that plagues, disease, and physical discomfort affected the faith of believers. Articles are arranged in order of date they were published, from oldest to newest.

[Cfamily]Las Búsquedas de Coronavirus Llevan a Millones a Escuchar de Jesús

Las Búsquedas de Coronavirus Llevan a Millones a Escuchar de Jesús

Decenas de miles han hecho clic para orar por salvación desde el brote. ¿Este aumento es temporal o es un presagio de mayor testimonio del Evangelio en línea?


Millones de personas preocupadas que han recurrido a Google debido a su ansiedad por el COVID-19, han terminado conectándose con evangelistas cristianos en sus resultados de búsqueda, lo que ha llevado a un aumento en las conversiones en línea durante el mes de marzo.


En Filipinas, una mujer llamada Grace se encontró un sitio web sobre el miedo al coronavirus presentado por la organización de evangelismo en línea Global Media Outreach (GMO). "Por favor, ayúdame a no preocuparme por todo", escribió en una conversación con un consejero voluntario. "Lo que está pasando ahora es muy confuso." El consejero explicó que solo Jesús puede traer paz duradera y Grace recibió a Jesús como su Salvador.


En los Estados Unidos, un voluntario de la Asociación Evangelística Billy Graham (BGEA) conversó en línea con una joven madre llamada Brittany a la que le preocupaba que el COVID-19 le quitara la vida a ella y a sus hijos. El voluntario ofreció esperanza y paz, y Brittany también aceptó a Cristo.


Tres de los mayores ministerios de evangelismo en línea —GMO, BGEA y Cru— reportan acumulativamente al menos 200 millones de presentaciones del Evangelio en internet al año. Los tres dicen que el número de personas que buscan información en línea sobre cómo conocer a Jesús ha aumentado desde que el brote de COVID-19 se declaró pandemia a principios de marzo.


De mediados a fines de marzo, la GMO vio un aumento del 170% de clics en anuncios de los motores de búsqueda sobre hallar esperanza. Los clics en anuncios ...

[Cfamily]Does Stay-in-Your-Car Worship Comply with Stay-at-Home Orders?
« Reply #1610 on: April 11, 2020, 01:00:09 AM »
Does Stay-in-Your-Car Worship Comply with Stay-at-Home Orders?

Church, state, and health officials across the country disagree about drive-in services.


Pastor David Dale had to call the sheriff to get a clear explanation of how the new rules restricting public gatherings would affect his church. The Methodist congregation had transitioned from its building to a drive-in theater, but now there was a question whether that was okay.


“This new order prohibits any activity at movie theaters,” Dale said as he hung up the phone. “I think that shuts down the drive-in.”


The Centre, Alabama, congregation is among scores across the country that moved to parking lots and drive-ins to comply with restrictions put in place to slow the spread of coronavirus.


From Michigan to Texas, Wisconsin to California, and New Jersey to North Carolina, Christians have revived this 1950s fad as a way to gather without getting physically close enough to infect each other. They stay in their own cars, honk their amens, and listen to sermons on the radios.


But as more states moved to safer-at-home and stay-at-home orders, the revival of drive-in churches raised questions. Emergency orders vary by state and even by county. They sometimes change overnight, as local leaders work with public health experts to determine what constitutes a “public gathering” and what kinds of activities should be exempt. Several states have had political fights over whether or not religious gatherings should be defined as essential.


And even when the guidelines are set, elected officials, public health officials, law enforcement officers, and pastors don’t always agree on how to interpret them. Drive-in churches have become a kind of public hermeneutic problem, negotiated in the lead-up to Easter.



Days before the holiday, the owner of a Kentucky drive-in theater that ...

[Cfamily]Interview: The Holy Fire Must Go On
« Reply #1612 on: April 13, 2020, 01:00:11 AM »
Interview: The Holy Fire Must Go On

As one of Jerusalem’s most ancient Christian celebrations is threatened by COVID-19, a brother-sister filmmaking team helps viewers experience the “Narnia” of their missionary-kid youth.


With the new coronavirus canceling Holy Week services around the globe, one of the most severe blows will be felt by Orthodox Christians. On the Saturday before Easter, which the Orthodox will observe on April 19 this year, thousands of pilgrims flock to Jerusalem’s Church of the Holy Sepulchre—the traditional location for Jesus’ crucifixion, burial, and resurrection—to witness the “miracle” of Holy Fire.


The historic church houses six ancient Christian sects—Greek, Franciscan, Armenian, Coptic, Syriac, and Ethiopian—which more or less cooperate in the administration of its affairs. By tradition, the Greek and Armenian bishops enter the tomb alone, but emerge with a divinely lit flame. The fire is shared candle-to-candle throughout the expectant and jubilant crowd.


Eventually it is transported to Greece in a special container, and then on to Serbia, Russia, and other nations in the Orthodox world.


Despite the social distancing restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Israel is nevertheless facilitating a scaled-back religious ceremony. And to avoid quarantine, foreign dignitaries will receive the flame at their airplane after it lands and immediately return home.


Mentioned obliquely in fourth-century sources, the first Western mention of the Holy Fire dates to Bernard the Wise, a monk from modern-day France who went on pilgrimage in 876 A.D. Disputed by many, its popularity with Orthodox communities worldwide makes the Holy Fire one of the world’s foremost Christian celebrations.


Local Christians are known to chant in Arabic: “We are the Christians, we have been Christians for centuries, and we shall be forever and ever. Amen!”

[Cfamily]This Easter, The Weary World Rejoices. But First It Grieves.
« Reply #1613 on: April 14, 2020, 01:00:12 AM »
This Easter, The Weary World Rejoices. But First It Grieves.

As a widow, I have newfound appreciation for why the mourning of Holy Saturday is indispensable to the journey toward joy.


The most striking of my childhood church memories occurred during our parish’s Good Friday service each year. At the end of the service, with the lights dimmed, our pastor would draw a black drape across the altar at the front of the sanctuary. As a child, the gesture reminded me of physicians I’d seen in old Hollywood movies draping the deceased. No doubt the allusion was intended. A black cloth hung on the cross above the altar, the sanctuary dressed for a funeral.


Afterward, my family and I walked quietly to the parking lot. An awkward hush followed us. Jesus had just died in there—what could you say after that? Buckled into the back seat of our station wagon, my sisters and I sat uncomfortably, waiting for the feeling to subside. This was only a pageant, right? The world wasn’t really this dark, our situation this bleak.


Eventually, conversation began to flow, and by the time we arrived home, the transition from Good Friday was complete. Like slowly waking from a bad dream, we emerged into the present once again. The next day, Holy Saturday, was filled with busyness. We made deviled eggs and rearranged the fridge to fit the ham. Nobody spoke of death or dying or thought about the black drape across the altar.


When we arrived at church on Easter morning, I always marveled at the transformed sights and smells of the sanctuary. Fragrant lilies and hyacinths blanketed the chancel, and the altar was covered in a white-and-gold embroidered cloth. The sanctuary had been scrubbed clean of death.


Even then as a child, the contrast seemed surreal. Were we the same people we’d been just two days before? After 40 days in Lent with Jesus, we stood at the foot of the cross and took in its horror, woke on ...

[Cfamily]Easter Was the Bible App’s Biggest Day Ever

Easter Was the Bible App’s Biggest Day Ever

During the locked-down holiday, 40.6 million people read Scripture on the popular app.


More people logged onto the YouVersion Bible App to read and share Scripture this Easter than any other time in the app’s decade-plus history.


Easter is typically the busiest day for the app, and with the majority of Christians celebrating the holiday online, Sunday’s stats far exceeded the record set in 2019. This year, 40.6 million people completed daily reading plans on Easter, up 54 percent. During Holy Week, another 14.1 million people shared verses, up 30 percent from the year before.


Overall, around a third of Americans say they are spending more time on their smartphones due to coronavirus quarantines, according to a Morning Consult poll released Monday.


For the month leading up to the pandemic, users on the Bible App as well as the Church Online platform—both created by ministries of the tech-savvy Life.Church—surged as congregations transitioned their devotions and worship away from in-person gatherings.



The Bible App is featuring special reading plans catered to the pandemic, with titles like “How to Stop Worrying,” “When Tragedy Strikes,” and “Gospel-Driven Work in the COVID-19 Crisis.”


The top verses shared on Easter included:



     
  • Mark 16:6 - ‘“Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.”’

  •  
  • Psalm 30:5 - “For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”

  •  
  • Luke 22:20 - “In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.’”
