June 3 Inspiration

From the Desk of Tanya Karn, Youth Ministry Director

We are not often given the privilege of knowing that we are living through a major historical event. What our world is currently experiencing is something that we will talk about with our children and grandchildren for years to come. We will get asked questions like, “What do you remember about the pandemic of 2020?” or “What did you do all day while everyone had to stay home?” This is completely new territory for our world, which is history in the making.

And as we face this historic event, we have a choice to make. How do we want to remember this time? As a time of frustration and fear? Or as a gift of time with our families?

I want to encourage you all to keep a memento of your thoughts, fears, joys, and even prayers during this time together. Whether it be a family journal, silly pictures, or recording some of your family time together, these are moments you are going to want to remember after we are through this.

Join me in praying for this situation, for all the people impacted, and for the health and safety of our neighbors.

“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.”Romans 15:13
