It’s natural that when we have a new threat–talking about the Coronavirus–that we compare it to something we already know about.
But the Coronavirus is very different from the flu that we’re all very familiar with. Different in several important ways.
This article will help greatly if you’d like to know more and see why this is a much bigger deal than, for instance, a new strain of flu.
This is a time to look out for each other.
A time to ask for help if you need it, especially if you’re in a high-risk group.
A very good time to keep one another in our prayers. And most of all, to help one another when we’re able to do so.
That was a great priority for St Francis in his day; the need was very, very great.
And that’s certainly true for us today.

I am a man who strives to be compassionate and believes that the life and teachings of Jesus still show us how to live and how to treat others in the 21st Century.***I believe that the tide of ugliness coming from elected officials and so-called leaders of the evangelical churches is a tragedy and must be countered with a renewed emphasis on modeling the compassion, teaching and life of Jesus.***I also believe that we have failed miserably in our stewardship of the Earth, our common home, and that this is also a grave failure of our corporate will and must be addressed.***These two horrible trends--the abrogation of the clear teachings of Jesus to follow in his footsteps and our failings to care for the Earth and all its inhabitants--must be resisted, must be countered with clear teachings and committed actions.***That is the mission, the driving force, behind our movement.
