This period of mandated social distancing will be hard for all small businesses, churches, and community organizations. Finances will be stretched, anxiety will be high, and our nerves will be tested. In the midst of this, here are two things to do: 
  1. Acknowledge the fears, both real and perceived. Acknowledge them to yourself, a loved one, and your God.
  2. After you have done this, pray. Hand you fears over to God and then ask for the strength of the Holy Spirit to bless you with a since of calm. It's the calm person who can see the opportunities for ministry. It's the calm person who can back away from panic. It's the calm person who can share the love of God.
