“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
Sources of news and support
May we who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home, remember those who have no work.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close, remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips remember those that have no place to go.
May we who are losing money in the tumult of the economic market, remember those who have no money at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home remember those who have no home.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbours.
