If you would have told me that markets would be depleted and that we could not hold church services on Sunday, I would have thought that you were an alarmist.

And if you would have added that it would be best for me to “self-quarantine” because I am one of the “vulnerable” to COVID-19 (I’m 67), I would have thought that you had lost your mind.

Well, it’s happened. What a difference a few days make.

The President has declared a national emergency and the United States are in an absolute panic.

I’m not quite sure why so many people have emptied the store shelves of toilet paper though. It has become so valuable that we may start using it as currency!

“How much for that coffee? Will two squares of toilet paper do?”

All joking aside, you can see people’s concern begin to mount. That is why we want to bring church to you and provide daily encouragement for you and your family.

Please visit my church website for our sermons that we have posted on YouTube.

Although we’re not meeting in person, let me make this clear: The church marches on. Let’s use this time to rally and continue to spread the hope of Jesus.
