Rev. Eric Doolittle Shares How to Practice Faith During a Pandemic
As the coronavirus continues to spread and the general public continue to see the world around them shut down in precaution, faith groups are trying new ways to keep their communities connected, even if they can’t do it face-to-face.
North Central College’s Rev. Eric Doolittle, chaplain, was quoted on a broadcast by WNIJ, an NPR affiliate for Northern Illinois. Many people’s daily schedules have all but exploded during the coronavirus pandemic. Rev. Doolittle mentioned in his interview that having a prayer schedule—like in Islam—can be beneficial to anyone in any faith tradition.
“So, planning that time, 10 minutes, five minutes, 20 if you can do it, to be intentional about the different parts of your self-care is essential,” said Rev. Doolittle.
