Avoiding the post-pandemic crash [Sermon]

Generally speaking, our bodies and minds are designed to handle crises for short periods of time. But the COVID-19 pandemic has been anything but short. We have been living in a state of emergency perpetually.

Therapist Sarah Covey talks about the possibility (for some people, not all) of a post-pandemic “crash,” when our fatigued systems just can’t keep it up anymore.

In this practical sermon on Psalm 116, I explore what God’s word teaches us about coming through trauma, and about the importance of connecting (or re-connecting) with God and others in the wake of trauma.

The YouTube version of the sermon is below, and the audio-only download is underneath. Also provided is a link to the extra background material called “growing deeper” as a part of The Pulse Podcast.

As mentioned, you can also access the extra background content as a part of The Pulse Podcast with Matthew Ruttan by going here (or by finding it wherever you subscribe to podcasts — iTunes (Apple), Spotify, Google Podcasts, Stitcher or TuneIn). It’s called “A healing response to trauma (Growing deeper with Psalm 116).”
