God, Why Coronavirus?

It has been two months and counting as our community and the world have been shaken by the Coronavirus.  Governments, businesses, churches, and homes have all been affected by the social, economic, and physical burdens of the virus.  We are filled with questions.  When will things return to normal?  Will we have a new normal?  Why is this happening?  How can we be better prepared next time?  What does the future look like?  I am sure there are many other questions you are asking too.

Fighting for Community

Romans 12:10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

 

Over the last several weeks, almost all of my routines and habits have been disrupted. My sleep schedule is messed up, work is now done from home, church is done virtually, and honestly, I sometimes don’t remember what day it is.

I am blessed with not only a strong body of believers to call my church family, but also a group of friends who have been my source of community for several years.
