A couple months ago, I showed up at a meeting where I was supposed to meet a Poudre School District administrator about a proposal they had for how Foothills could better support vulnerable students. As I sat down, I thought I recognized the person they wanted me to meet. But it took the whole hour before we both realized we live next door to each other!
Another week of sheltering-in-place has passed. How are you doing? I’ve realized that in a given day my answer often includes nearly every feeling word I know. From scared to angry to wonder to anguish to blah. Sometimes all at once.
It hit me today that in just a few days, my family and I will have been sheltering-in-place for a full month. A month ago tomorrow the Governor declared a state of emergency. This Sunday – Easter Sunday! – will be our fifth Sunday online! It feels both longer and shorter. Time is a really strange thing in a pandemic.
Being a large congregation with over 1200 people in our community circles, it can be difficult to get a pulse on how every individual person is doing, all the time. But just because it’s difficult doesn’t mean it’s not worth doing, especially in times like today.
How are you holding up? Wherever you are, and however you are doing, as Sean shared on Sunday, you are loved, and it is enough.
