How we are staying connected during “shelter-in-place”

It is good to give thanks to God, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night. (Psalm 92:1-2)

First and foremost, I encourage all of us to make frequent phone calls and to connect digitally as often as possible. Hearing each other’s voices and “seeing” each other helps us stay grounded and connected during a time of uncertainty and isolation. This is a great time to send cards and letters, and to breathe in the beauty of creation outside.

Together we are the Body of Christ, caring for one another, our community, and the world.
