I sit here and wonder, where do I begin? I find it hard to comfort myself,

 how do I comfort others?


It would be so easy to allow myself to say that because I do not know

 what to do, I’ll do nothing. But that would be too easy. We all know that

 is not the right thing to do. Many pastors are doing video sermons and

 “virtual” worship. Is that the “right” thing to do? The Bishop has told us

 ,”Do not live in Fear.” But, isn’t a little fear a good thing.

Sally reminded us in a recent e-mail that the Bible tells us again and

 again, “Fear not.” I am trying. It is now time to practice what I preach. I

 am striving to live as one with hope. I am looking for the rainbow at the

 end of the storm. My eyes are set on the Promised Land. I know that

 God did not do this. God did not wish for this to happen or even allow

 it to happen. This is on us. Like all of the other bad in this world, 

human actions and free will got us into this mess.

So, trust in God. Live in Hope. But stay at home. Keep yourself and

 others safe and virus free. Only go out when it is absolutely necessary.

 Give our grocery stores a break and only buy what you need. Stock up

 on Tylenol and Nyquil so that if you do get sick you can treat your

 symptoms the moment they appear. Take warnings seriously.   There 

is no way to know if we overreact, but we will defiantly know if we don’t.

 And pray. Pray for everyone, there is no one that is not affected by this.

Remember always that we are one big family, in this together.

Romans 5:3-5 Revised Standard Version (RSV). 3 More than that, we

 rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4

and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5

and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured

 into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us.

 Fear not my friends, live as people with faith.

 Pastor Anita
