A Serious Note From Tom
Our lives these days are filled with peaks and valleys. A perfect example occurred late this afternoon. The valley was an email informing me that the father of a woman in our church family who had tested positive for Covid-19 just died. Incredibly sad for all. The virus is taking a toll on everyone - physically, emotionally, economically - and keeps pushing us deeper into life's valleys.
Yet amidst the valleys, there remain many peaks, one which appeared a few moments later when I received a note from a long-time Community Church family, the Randolphs. Jennifer wrote in the email that their family business had
shifted its resources to manufacturing protective face shields, noting
with every face shield produced we protect one more medical professional currently at risk.
An inspiring, wonderful peak.
Peaks and valleys. The death of a loved one. Concurrently, a nimble, values-based family business doing a 180 degree turn that is helping the global crisis we're in - and ultimately, saving lives.
