The way we care for others has been radically changed by the coronavirus pandemic. Social distancing has kept us from being with people. It has reminded us of our limitations. But, also provides us an opportunity to trust that God will do His part and care for them in our absence.
If you are worried and frustrated because you are not able to care for someone in your life this mini-episode will encourage you with God's words from Psalm 139.
When the world seems out of control, it is tempting to believe that you've lost all control. However, that is simply not true. You have control over so many different things.

In this episode, Jen shares the invitation Henry Nouwen gives in his book, "The Only Necessary Thing." It's an invitation to be still and attentive to God in us so that we can perceive God in the world. He is doing something new. Each time we choose to listen, we discover more of what God has for us.

One of the challenges of COVID-19 is a shortage of personal protective equipment that healthcare workers need in order to stay healthy and safe as they serve on the frontlines of this pandemic.
In today's episode, Jen reminds us that we too also need to stay safe during this battle as we serve on the spiritual frontlines. Fortunately, you have your own personal protective equipment...God's very own weapons. Supplies will never run low. But you do need to suit up in order to stand in these challenging times.
