Coronavirus Update from Compassionate SA
Thanks to the work of our friends at Compassionate SA, we are able to bring you an update on local information regarding the Coronavirus.

San Antonio's Metro Health Leadership Team reports that: The response has been a wonderful representation of the coordination of efforts here in our City. Several City Departments are involved as well as key partners like STRAC and TX DSHS. As of last Friday, we have 3 confirmed positive cases in Bexar County. All three  cases are evacuees that were in quarantine at Lackland Air Force Base (LAFB). Those individuals are at a maximum level isolation from the general public.  At this time, the risk to the public remains low.  Also, 90 evacuees from the first group at LAFB completed their 14-day quarantine and have departed to their homes .

The City of San Antonio Metro Health District has put together information posters about the virus, how to reduce your risk and basic facts sheets. You can find links to this information in English, Spanish, Chinese and Vietnamese via the link below.

Sallie's Ponderings
Sallie gives some interest advice in this edition of Sallie's Ponderings:

Do nothing.

During Lent, perhaps it is in "doing nothing", we find a whole lot of something. Perhaps over french fries.

Imagine! God's Earth and People Restored
April 24-27
Washington, DC

On April 24, 2020, join together with Presbyterians from across the nation in Washington, D.C. to learn how Presbyterians and partners are answering this call and working for the restoration of God’s creation and people. Through plenaries, workshops, and networking opportunities, this Compassion Peace and Justice Training Day offers the chance to explore the various ways we are addressing climate change, ecological destruction and environmental racism. Advancing climate justice and just transition to value and protect people who have historically been made vulnerable by economic and environmental injustice will be a special focus.

Many will continue the learning by attending the Ecumenical Advocacy Days: Imagine! God’s Earth and People Restored from Friday evening on April 24 through Lobby Day on Monday the 27th. Almost 1,000 Christian advocates join us every year for a weekend of workshops, lectures and concrete actions addressing movements for social change.

We believe that God created this world, called it good, and told humans to care for it.
We are blessed to have this sacred task.
