God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
While we all do our part to suppress the spread of the Coronavirus, there are plenty of opportunities to grow closer to our refuge and strength!
Explore these resources from Ambassadors of Reconciliation for ideas about how to make the best of our time of self-isolation.
The best defense against these challenging times is God's Word and the promises He offers there.
The COVID-19 outbreak continues to impact all aspects of our lives, including our economy, work, family, neighborhood, schools and church! Many of our churches have responded by suspending gatherings at church buildings, including worship and Bible study.
People are now isolated from being spiritually fed and satan delights in nothing more than God's children feeling isolated from the gifts of His means of grace!
But, what can we do???
First, we encourage each of you to seek regular opportunity to be in God's Word to keep yourself well nourished. Then as reconcilers be prepared to share the good news with others who are feeling fearful, anxious, uncertain or abandoned.
As it is Lent, Ambassadors of Reconciliation has FREE Daily Devotions. Just click the link and bookmark it to return each day. For each devotion you may read and/or listen to it. These are all great reminders of what God has done for you in Christ. Just what we need to hear today!
To serve you, we have many Bible studies you can review online for FREE. These Bible studies address many of the feelings people are having right now! You will find comfort from God's Word for you and for those you serve. Studies for which you'd like a hardcopy, may be ordered from our bookstore.
Another opportunity we have is to begin meeting for small-group Bible study online! It's a GREAT way to stay connected and encourage one another through the promises of God's Word. Anyone can get a group to come together at Ambassadors of Reconciliation's Group Video Chat for FREE to have a Bible study! If you have a group, you may begin immediately by just selecting a room name and a time to meet. Otherwise, contact us if you are interested in starting or participating in such a study!
You may also study Conflict Resolution vs Reconciliation Self-paced Study for FREE. This online study is available to anyone, anytime, anywhere.
In this time of isolation and quarantine, we must be prudent so we are not exposed or inadvertently share the virus. To enable this critical work of reconciliation, Ambassadors of Reconciliation is making our new Coach's Corner video chat feature available to ANYONE who wishes to provide spiritual care during this time of COVID-19 isolation.
Coach's Corner is a simple always-on, always-available way you can effectively connect with people you would normally meet with personally. This allows you to provide the spiritual care that is desperately needed at this critical time while honoring the need to remain socially distant. Contact us if you'd like to have access to this feature. We will be delighted to make this available to you!
Finally, we are pleased to announce the introduction of a new online training course; Coaching People to Reconcile - Online Practicum! We have been training people to be Conflict Coaches for years with live training events around the world. Now, we are offering that same training online! This online experience includes all of the components of our traditional events, including: lecture, demonstration, practicum experience, discussion and feedback.
Sign up today to join a cohort from around the nation (or world!) as you learn together. We plan to keep the cohort size small so you have access to the instructor(s). You don't need to travel. You can stay in the comfort of your own home or office.
We're limiting the cohort size for the initial courses to just 6 students so space is limited! Use the coupon code Psalm46 to receive $150 off!
