If you’re participating in our Finding God in the Mess Read-Along, you’ll notice that one of the chapters addresses how we connect to each other in a world driving toward a contactless society. Our planned video for today features Brendan McManus, SJ, reading that chapter, in fact. But the text takes on a different meaning as we practice social distancing for the good of each other. So whether you’ve been reading the book or not, consider this question authors Jim Deeds and McManus pose: “How could you help those already in a contactless world and reach out in love to them wherever and whenever possible?” In other words, how can we use our digital tools for good to help overcome loneliness and fear, reminding us we’re in this together, even when we can’t be physically present together?
