Dear Angel families,

As we confront the struggles ahead, we ask for you to reflect on our many blessings.  Please remember those that are needing support and love during this time.  May God grant them the strength and courage to persevere and remain hopeful.

May we who are merely inconvenienced, remember those whose lives are at stake.

May we who have no risk factors, remember those most vulnerable.

May we who have the luxury of working from home, remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.

May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close, remember those who have no options.

May we who have to cancel our trips, remember those that have no safe place to go.

May we who settle in for a quarantine at home, remember those who have no home.

As fear grips our country, Let us choose LOVE.  During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbours.

Amen.
