In keeping with the parenting during pandemic theme, I wrote this article back in March and Plough magazine published it. “When the Sickness is Over” looks at parenting a toddler while in social isolation, as well as some reflections on the theological concept of already-not-yet.
I’ve written a few reflections on daily life during COVID-19. “The gift of nurturing small things in isolation” was published in The Christian Century. Here I reflect on raising a baby in a pandemic, giving and receiving living things when we are living apart, the joy of caring for small things like succulents and sourdough starter, and some theological concepts around creation.
It’s been too long since I’ve posted here. I’m just going to say sorry for neglecting my “news and events” and then jump ahead to what’s been happening in the last few months.
Sorry for neglecting my “news and events.”
So, things have been busy being stuck at home during the COVID-19 pandemic with a baby and a toddler, but I’ve still been able to do a little bit of writing so I’ll post a bit about that here.
Two months ago I wrote a blog post for my publisher, Touchwood Editions. It’s part of a great series they started early in the pandemic called “At Home With” wherein Touchwood authors write about what their lives have looked like while socially isolating/quarantining. You can learn a little more about what I’ve been up to by reading my post here.
