A Word from Elder Dennis Yoder

Dear Northminster Family,

This past week has been surreal. A disease that was once a headline from a far away land has reached our shores and has begun propagating into Ohio. What followed has been a cascading list of closures and restrictions, a delayed election, falling stock prices and frenzied runs on toilet paper. It's as if we awoke inside some crazy Hollywood movie and reminds me of Mark 4:35-41. Panicked disciples, fearing for their lives while on a boat in the middle of a storm woke a sleeping Jesus who calmed the wave and then asked them, "Why are you so afraid" Have you no faith?"

to finish this uplifting article from Dennis.
