Life in the Days of COVID-19

This is a trying time for many.

While we can hope and pray for science to arrive at a solution - vaccine and treatment - the states of our souls are more important by far. This biological crisis will pass, but for those who don't look after the state of the soul, the repercussions could be eternal.

Never forget our Lord's words to Solomon, 3000 years ago, at the dedication of the First Temple.

When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command the locust to devour the land, or send pestilence among my people, if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. - 2 Chronicles 7:13-14

It is up to each of us, as Christians, to follow that command.

A good place to start is the prayers we've assembled.
But, it's only a starting point!!

Read Scripture.
Read the Church Fathers.

Amend your lives.

You eternity may depend on it
