The world is now too dangerous and too beautiful for anything but love. May your eyes be so blessed you see God in everyone; your ears, so you hear the cry of the poor. Your hands be so blessed that everything you touch is a sacrament. Your lips , so you speak nothing but the truth with love. May your feet be so blessed you run to those who need you . And may your heart be so opened, so set on fire, that your love, YOUR LOVE, CHANGES EVERYTHING.
Most of us have been paying attention to the news as information about COVID-19 changes hour to hour. This virus is aggressive. Our government leaders strong encouragement to social isolation may feel extreme to some.
You know what? As people of faith, those words also describe our hope. Hope that this virus will be halted. Hope that our sense of community with one another will be restored. Hope that God has not left us to fend this virus alone.
In the waters of baptism, we are claimed as children of God, as part of God's family,which means we don't live in this world separate from one another.
While we do the social distancing, may we read the Bible daily and meditate so we have a clearer mind when things seem to be coming at us!!
