In this interview I also spend time talking about "Strong Ties" and "Weak Ties" and how these ties are important during non-crises times and crises times (like COVID-19)––and why it is important to have Weak Ties in place before a crisis happens upon us, especially for urban/inner-city churches and churches existing in resource-lacking communities.
This podcast interview is about 35 minutes long, but recaps well the issues facing Hill-like communities in the face of COVID-19.
