WEEKLY MEDITATION 16-22 MARCH 2020

During these challenging times across the globe, it is important to remember that we serve a loving God and he is still in control. Panic and fear are far more dangerous AND contagious than any virus.

It’s important to also remember that we serve a God of love and compassion. NOT a god of confusion and fear. Pray, have faith in the Lord, and wash your hands. We will all get through this challenging time. Check-in on those who may be lonely or need help. Look for ways to help those most vulnerable and in need.  May this prayer and meditation bring you peace, comfort and a renewed focus on the Lord.
