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.

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.
