Life in the Time of COVID. Tell us your story…
The New York Times calls COVID-19 “the greatest health catastrophe in a century.” In our community, the first infections began in mid-March 2020, and the pandemic remains an ongoing public health crisis. In one way or another, we still feel its impact on our lives. The Faith & Health Board invites St. John’s members of all ages to reflect on living in the time of COVID. What have you experienced and felt? What have you lost or gained? How are you coping? How has the pandemic affected work, family, and church? Do you see a hopeful future?
