Realigning our priorities

Anita Kelly suggests ways of staying emotionally healthy post-lockdown

Realigning our priorities ISTOCK

LOCKDOWN HAS HAD AN IMMENSE impact on our lives socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually. It may have taught us the value of a slower pace of life and perhaps made us reassess our priorities in life. Many people reconsidered their job situations and chose to move to more meaningful or enjoyable employment, not necessarily for financial reward. Anglican churchwardens in the Northolt Deanery recognised a natural stopping of some activities in lockdown whilst seeing new ministries spring up as was needed, according to Catherine Pickford, their Archdeacon. Not being able to meet together in church and being housebound for long periods has challenged what our real sense of purpose is. Perhaps it has drawn us closer to God, but also emphasised the importance of social connection, something that God always intended for us. Long hours on video calls for church meetings has demonstrated the intrinsic value of the need to meet face-to-face and the joy of being with others to worship God.

Come away, my beloved

If I choose to hide you away, it is for a reason.
I have brought you to this place.
Drink in the silence. Seek solitude.
