Words of Hope During COVID-19
Linda Tower Pevey, author of We Are the Church… Let’s Act Like It, encourages us to focus on what we can do rather than what we can’t as we practice social distancing.
This journey in grief has been packed with brokenness and blessings. My spiritual director often asks me, “What is God teaching your heart today?” God is teaching my heart that God is more mysterious and elusive than ever, and yet the paradox is that God is more real and nearer than ever.
—Nell E. Noonan, A Widow’s Prayer: Finding God’s Grace in the Days Ahead (Upper Room Books, 2015)
What is God teaching your heart today? Join the conversation.
The LORD is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.
—Psalm 145:18 (NRSV)
