Where is God in COVID-19?
In the warm smile of an old friend seen virtually, gone and now reunited.
In the tear of a family member who lost a loved one… perhaps their only one.
In the hands of a nurse who left the safety of their home to care for a stranger.
In the resilience of a food store clerk who understands the necessity of food.
In the care of a doctor who lives a ministry of hope.
In the words of sacred scripture proclaimed in faith, at a bedside, for the last time.
In the parent who is fearful at the uncertainty of their child’s future.
In the pain of a Homeless Shelter and the people who show us the meaning of trusting in providence.
In the hearts of the people of Europe who stood on their porches on Easter to clap for a minute in support of all healthcare workers worldwide.
In the fear of an isolated nursing home resident.
In the brokenhearted, lonely, furloughed, poor and marginalized.
In the songs of the birds which herald each new day, and in the majestic purple primrose peeking from the soil.
God is most certainly here. A God who journeys, heals, and loves us dearly.
