We do not practice social distancing because we are fearful.
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love, and sound judgment.2 Timothy 1:7 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
We actually practice social distancing because of the “love and sound judgment” we have been blessed with. The spread of COVID-19 follows the laws of nature put in place by God. Understanding that our human systems can be overwhelmed when a virus spreads rapidly we, as the church, must demonstrate sound judgment and follow the guidelines that slow the spread of this disease.
Yes, that means we are canceling in-person meetings for the time being. But it also means we are here for each other. When you cannot see each other in person remember to call, text, Facebook or Snapchat. Use social media to share what is good in your life. Today I showed my colleagues from work my new office mates, fur buddies Oreo and Luna. They were napping at my feet during our Zoom meeting.
While we keep our physical distance let’s become spiritually closer than ever. Watch our Facebook pages for times and days we will be LIVE there or streaming on YouTube.
Stay Safe! Stay Healthy! Share LOVE without Hugs!
