Faith can play an important role in times of uncertainty - offering comfort and hope. Since COVID-19 hit Connecticut, many churches, synagogues and mosques have closed across the state. Faith leaders have moved worship online - and found new ways to bring people together.
It has not been easy. Leaders across religious traditions are under tremendous pressure guiding their congregations through grief and trauma - while helping their communities build resilience.
In a conversation recorded earlier this month, guest host Diane Orson talks with a pastor, a rabbi and an imam who have walked into a pandemic - and it is not a joke. They speak about what it has been like for clergy, where they turn when they’re feeling stressed, and whether their own faith has wavered.
