    Beautifully stated. Thank you.
    We are, indeed, it seems, at war.

    We trust in the LORD of Hosts…

    Good words to read and reread
    I watch my nurse daughter (someone who is driven to heal both man and beast) and i am amazed – how does she keep going?
    She works for a national corporation who sent all their employees a little box containing a small spray hand sanitizer and a 6″ high “doll” that laughs hysterically when you press its belly. She has a friend who works for their competition. That company retrofitted the machines they depend on to allow their nurses to monitor their patients from a safe distance if they’re covid posit instead of staying closed up with them for 4+ hours in a small room.
    And there are other pressures imposed by a hospital that hasn’t taken PPDs seriously…
    It is true that waging war is very hard on the participants, the boots on the ground participants..
    God keeo

    Cash, thank you for in insightful and heartfelt article. It allows us to be human.

    “Let’s stop making this about politics. It’s so far beyond that now. What we are going to endure is much deeper and important than our partisan politics.” God bless and keep you and yours Cash.

    ERunner–Always great to hear from you, brother. Thanks for your kind words, and may the Lord also protect you and all your family from this terrible plague.

    Thanks Cash! I anticipate that we are going to see a continued crisis unfold even after this pandemic wanes. Currently, I’m praying on behalf of health care workers who are working the frontline of this warfare. God bless and keep them all.

    Pstrmike—Thanks for praying for them. 🙏

    I would like to share a good story of the church in action at this time:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/06/nyregion/cathedral-st-john-the-divine-coronavirus-field-hospital.html?fbclid=IwAR2Qo01Qibq2TohFvZ8mGrFEzE8G12fv3YuI8v6Iz-tinZ5Vzczvz-CwxcU

    From a pastor friend, regarding what this church is doing:

    “Wow! Talk about a sermon illustration. Since the building cannot, at the moment, receive the gathered Body of Christ around the sacramental Body of Christ, it now receives Christ in the body of the neighbor in need.” – William Cwirla
