I continue to marvel at the fact that the entire world is dealing with this coronavirus!
Normally, our disasters and crises are more localized. A hurricane hits New Orleans. A fire rages in California. A plane crashes in Indonesia. Bali is overwhelmed by a tsunami. That sort of thing.
We are accustomed to dealing with small-scale brokenness. And our hearts break when that happens.
But in this moment, the entire world is dealing with the same thing. Of course, the struggle is not exactly the same in each place. Still, the struggle is universal. And, frankly, it is hard even to make sense of how expansive this terrible event is.
Within that reality, though, there are some blessings. And one of those blessings is that followers of Jesus all around the world can offer encouragement and hope and comfort to one another.
So today, here is a word from our brothers and sisters in Zimbabwe. We probably haven't heard much from them lately. And we probably haven't thought much of them lately. But these dear friends have a good word for us today.
Listen and be encouraged!
