I suspect that most of you reading this, have never lived through a time like we are currently experiencing. Do I go out or stay in? Am I appropriately cautious or paranoid? Are we ever going to return to anything like, what my memory identifies as normal? I don’t know! People ask why we haven’t opened the church for worship. Folks ask for my thoughts, as a minister, on the current social discord, but are really seeking an affirmation of what they already believe. And my responsibility is to reflect and apply the gospel message to current events as objectively as I can.
