It’s hard not to panic with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) spreading across the globe at an alarming rate. Responsive measures are in process here in the U.S. As more cases manifest, universities (like UVA and William & Mary yesterday) are opting for students to go home and finish their semesters online. Conferences and sporting events have been cancelled. It’s hard to find disinfectant wipes anywhere in stores. Whole shelves of supplies are completely empty.
Like I said, it would be easy right now to panic. But, here’s the thing about Lent, about our faith. No matter what scary thing looms on our horizon (or continues scaring us from the past), God is with us – always. God’s grace will help us deal with whatever may come, and whatever we’ve come through.
So, there’s no reason to panic. Just ‘sayin, one more time:
grace, peace & panic-free zones
