Karina Kreminski reflects on Covid-19 and the power of thinking and acting locally

Follow THEOLOGY@Brisbane on WordPress.com

Karina Kreminski is co-founder of Neighbourhood Matters and the author of Urban Spirituality (2018). She is a minister and she teaches at Morling College. Kreminski writes, “The Covid-19 pandemic has ushered in a season of ‘micro-living’. In many ways our lives have become smaller, concrete, more ordinary and local. Instead of expensive overseas travel to exotic, faraway places, we consider a walk to the local shops as extravagant. Rather than going out to enjoy the ‘foodie’ scene by tracking down the trendiest restaurant, we are cooking at home, spending money locally and focusing on enjoying time with family or neighbours. Rather than spending our leisure time in other parts of the country, we are walking the streets of our neighbourhoods.  Drawing on The Abundant Community: Awakening the power of families and Neighborhoods, by John McKnight and Peter Block and other authors, Karina Kreminski’s insights show the power of thinking and acting locally. http://www.ethos.org.au/online-resources/Engage-Mail/a-bounded-life-embracing-the-local
