COVID Reflections

COVID, the Global Pandemic and Life:
Mid-Week Reflections by an Anglican Priest

These twelve reflections were written by the Rev. Nancy Yee from March 2020 to June 2020. Rev. Nancy wrote these weekly reflections in her basement during the initial stages of the global pandemic, when the world was shaken by the virus and went into lockdown. The Rev. Nancy wanted to connect with her parishioners and this seemed to be the only way to do so when services were suspended because of the novel coronavirus.

Rev. Nancy believes these reflections were inspired by the Holy Spirit. The words seemed to flow from within Rev. Nancy's soul and being. The ease in which these reflections were written, the many resources that crossed her path that inspired her words and were so appropriate for the reflection that week, and the many positive and encouraging responses she received has led her to believe that God was a part of these reflections in a good way.

Each reflection represents the Rev. Nancy's thoughts and musings for that week. Each reflection contains many different topics, not necessarily connected by a theme. Some reflections have extra attachments; some have images. Some are thought-provoking. Some may be better than others.

These reflections were sent out each week to the parishioners of St. James the Apostle and St. Philip, two Anglican parishes under her charge. Now, they are being shared with the wider community on this website in the hope that the reflections may be a blessing to others.
