Home, faith and COVID-19
'Home, faith and COVID-19' resource guide launch event with talks, discussion and an interfaith reception.
'Home, faith and COVID-19: insights from the pandemic and opportunities for the future' by Miri Lawrence, Alastair Owens, and Alison Blunt, is a guide for people of all faiths.
Produced by the Arts and Humanities Research Council-funded project, Stay Home Stories, 'Home, faith and COVID-19' draws on interviews with people from different religious communities on their experiences during periods of lockdown and COVID-19-related restrictions.
The report recognises the losses associated with the life of religious communities during the pandemic, but primarily focuses on many of the positive experiences for faith groups and the implications for future developments in religious communities.
Whilst we are still learning to live with COVID-19 and make sense of the legacies of the pandemic, most of us no longer face restrictions in how we go about our daily lives. At this interfaith launch event, we will consider how faith communities can use experiences of the pandemic to ‘build back better’ and, particularly, how we can draw from shared experiences of dealing with COVID-19 to create new dialogues among different religions.
