At times of considerable challenge and change, we can be people who lift one another. Within our community, there will be vastly different scenarios unfolding for each of us. Being people for each other is the greatest gift we can give. Who we are in our families and in community is what enriches us. Being gently present for each other can make a great difference. As we adhere strictly to government guidelines and maintain high levels of physical distancing, we can reach out to care for people beyond our immediate families by phone and technology.
At our simplest and richest, we are people in relationship. God walks with us, gently present.
