Surviving War, Pandemic, and Daily Life: Spiritual and Relational First Aid


Navigating crises requires different skill sets than navigating daily life. One requires heightened attention, monitoring of the environment, and quick responses. Daily life requires intentionality, routines, and thoughtful engagement. For the past two years, the world has been in crises with rapidly changing rules, expectations, and ways of relating to others. Sometimes it is harder in quiet times than in crises. In this talk, we assess which is our "goodness-of-fit" response and how to identify it for ourselves and others. We will also look at spiritual and relational first aid that can be helpful for pastors, NGO leaders, and clinicians in addressing times of crises and calm.
