The first nurse in New York City to die of COVID-19 contracted in the line of duty has passed.
Kious Jordon Kelly had told his family that he thought he had contracted the virus while at work.
He most certainly was right.
He’s passed and his colleagues fear he will not be the last.
Our doctors, nurses and techs–healthcare professionals of all kinds–are on the front lines as the coronavirus ravages our communities.
Pray for them. Pray for them and advocate for those who make decisions to do whatever must be done to get them the tools they need to continue to serve our communities and the patients whose care has been entrusted to them.
God bless Kious and all who are on the front lines.
Take good care of yourselves; there are rough times ahead.

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.
