Let’s be honest, we’re living in really interesting circumstances right now. This COVID-19 crisis is more than a snowstorm that slows things down for a few days, or a rainy day that forces us to cancel our plans. This is an interruption to many day-to-day routines for weeks to come.
Jesus was often interrupted in his ministry with crises; and when he was, he didn’t respond in anger, overwhelm, or even a hurried pace to fix it all quickly. We’re pausing our study of Lamentations to take the next three Sundays to learn from Jesus, and to answer the question: How should we respond to this coronavirus interruption and other intrusions?
