Title Opinion: Does faith matter in 2021? Degree of recognition Regional Media name/outlet Anglican News Media type Web Country Australia Date 08/02/21 Description Drawing on an integrated lens with a knowledge base in social work, sociology, philosophy and theology, I gently argue in this piece: that faith will matter in 2021 and that the contraries of life do not have to define us. When times are hard during COVID-19, we can reach out to others for professional and personal help. Furthermore, as we continue to deal with the disaster, COVID-19, and as 2020 ceases and 2021 starts tick-tocking, we also have the option of leaning into Jesus and letting Jesus journey with us through our trauma.
In this opinion piece, I also suggest that as the trauma of 2020 overshadows the dawning of 2021, that the Old Testament book of Genesis can assist us with transitioning into the New Year. It gifts us with secrets about resilience, as found in relationships. This is because narratives of trauma and people's responses to trauma saturate Genesis.
