Multifaith Exhibition: Faith in Pandemic Times
Theme: Faith in Pandemic Times
Social restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic have increased feelings of loneliness and social isolation.
And with places of worship forced to close to contain the spread of virus, important religious festivals not celebrated, and religious rituals held online rather than in-person, people have found it increasingly difficult to maintain a sense of community.
The 'Faith in Pandemic Times' theme is an exploration of any of the following:
- How have you or your faith community been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic ?
- Where have you found strength, hope, and purpose in times of isolation, anxiety, and uncertainty?
- Where have you found faith in pandemic times?
- How does one worship alone? How can you embrace your faith tradition during a pandemic?
- Can sacred texts and rituals provide comfort in times of isolation?
- How have you been able to maintain a sense of community?
