When I am afraid, I will trust in You.Psalm 56:3
The news about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and its impact on us gives us every reason to be anxious and fearful. However, God is greater than any circumstance we might face and His perfect love casts out all fear (1 John 4:18). During times like this, we need to exercise wisdom and prudence. We are also called to pray, trust, and serve those around us. We can serve others by taking the steps recommended by health authorities to prevent the spread of the virus. We can also assist those who are the most vulnerable.
We have listed some links below to help you stay informed on the latest news about the virus, and we have also shared some links to Biblical resources for you during this time. The days ahead are uncertain, but we can place our hope in God who is our ever-present help in times of trouble (Psalm 46:1).
