Dear Lori,

The first digital Easter is just a few days away. While we know this is a challenging time for many church leaders, we hope that you and your people are able to find joy and hope as you celebrate the resurrection of Jesus this Sunday, apart, yet together in spirit.

In this roundup, you'll find some articles to inspire your Easter message—and other digital services beyond Easter Sunday—as well as some that offer a glimpse into current church trends and others that encourage us to continue reaching out to the next generation during this unprecedented time. After all, as Barna president David Kinnaman shared in his book Faith for Exiles, even the most resilient of younger disciples struggle to grasp the full scope of the gospel.

We hope the data, tools and resources listed below help equip you and your team to see clearly, lead confidently and engage effectively in our current moment.

Happy Easter,

—Barna Group
