Like most of us, Dr. Tony Evans is adapting to the new normal of social distancing, a result of the spread of COVID-19. He is preaching to a congregation that he deeply loves, but not from the pulpit where he normally stands, instead, he is preaching from his “home pulpit” … the middle of his living room.
Despite so much change, Dr. Evans is maintaining some familiarity by doing something he does best—going directly to the people and proclaiming God’s word.
In a rare sit-down interview, Dr. Evans graciously allows us access to his other new normal, walking through grief of losing his wife Louis.
This past December, Evans lost the woman he loved and cherished for nearly 50 years of marriage. “I’m taking one day at a time, it’s a roller coaster of uphills and downhills,” he told Christian Headlines.
You can tell in his voice that there is deep grief, yet at the same time, you sense a strength that only comes from having God at the center of his life.
