My Fellow Disciples of Jesus,
I am sharing this article,
An Easter Sermon in a Coronavirus
written by Jim Wallis.
Jim Wallis is an American theologian, writer, teacher, and political activist. He is the founder and editor of
magazine and the founder of the Washington, DC based Christian Community of the same name.
He is the author of 12 books and is well-known for his advocacy on issues of peace and social justice.
In his “Sermon,” he raises three main themes:
- Faith communities must put their moral authority behind the doctors and scientists pleading with us to practice and maintain our physical distance from one another as the only way to “flatten the curve” of this pandemic and literally save lives.
- We must also fulfill our critical role in preventing social distancing from becoming social isolation.
- We must dive into and deepen our vocation to focus on the most vulnerable.

We walk by faith, not by sight…we keep putting one foot in front of the other…we may not know where we are going, but that is okay, because wherever we are going, God is already there!
