Faith in Action
Updated: Jan 31, 2022
I can’t believe it’s November already. How did we get to this point in 2021 so fast? And how is it that life can both feel at a standstill and like it’s been moving at breakneck speed, all at the same time? Life often feels that way, but I know it’s also somewhat a product of the strange times we’re living in. But let me encourage you today. Yes, life may be different, but human beings are resilient. We can find a new equilibrium, adapt, and grow. I believe that this message is also important for believers. We may face new challenges, but the truth and hope of Christ’s gospel is unchanging and eternal.
In November, I’m also acutely aware of the oncoming cold weather. Whenever winter is on the verge of making its icy appearance, my thoughts inevitably wander to those families and individuals in Ukraine who I know will struggle and suffer more through the cold winter months than I ever will. In fact, whenever I talk about Ukraine with someone, in my mind’s eye, it’s those village families and vulnerable seniors that I see.
