As the Coronavirus continues to unfold, know that the same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
God is always with you.
As we face uncertainty of what lies ahead, we will shoulder this together. If you are able and willing to help someone in need, contact Karen from Social Ministry. Please keep in contact with those that may be isolated thru texts, e-mails or a phone call, and continue to share your stewardship as best you can.
If you cant do what you do,
do what you can.
A Prayer from Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton
God, our peace and our strength, we pray for our nation and the world as we face new uncertainties around coronavirus. Protect the most vulnerable among us, especially all who are currently sick or in isolation. Grant wisdom, patience, and clarity to health care workers, especially as their work caring for others puts them at great risk. Guide us as we consider how best to prepare and respond in our families, congregations, workplaces, and communities. Give us courage to face these days not with fear but with compassion, concern, and acts of service, trusting that you abide with us always, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
