Redeeming the Time
Each week, we the pastoral staff would like to provide you with a variety of resources and thoughts for you to reclaim your time during the current pandemic. Some of these will take the form of encouraging thoughts and journal entries, while some, like today’s entry, will highlight a practical resource for edification. Although COVID-19 has provided speed bumps for all of our lives, God is also gracious in providing little blessings in our quarantining. One such blessing might potentially be having extra time for us to educate ourselves in theological training with others via distance learning.
Enter in Ligonier Connect, which has decided to bless the global church by giving away over 100 of their courses for free for a season. Inside their platform, you can sign up to take any course you wish either by yourself, or by creating an online study group with several friends. Even if, like me, you have kids in the house and your workload has increased exponentially with homeschooling, or juggling children and work with every limb you have, course lectures may be a beneficial way to reclaim time folding laundry, doing dishes or perhaps while riding your peloton.
Easily Accessible Seminary Level Training
Perhaps the main thing that continues to impress me about Ligonier Ministries is the way they’ve been able to make high-level, academic, seminary-level material accessible and digestible for the broader church. Inside the course brochure, you’ll find courses on Biblical Studies, Christian Living, Church History, Theology, as well as Worldview & Culture. Although each course is quality, if you’re not sure where to start, I’d recommend any of the following:
