Our world is upside down or downside up???
The swift arrival of this pandemic has in fact certainly turned our world upside down, causing us to pause and reflect. As the virus is predicted to peak in some areas this week, we, at the same time, are called as members of the living Body of Christ to enter into His passion and death as we look with hope to RESURRECTION.
In a real sense, I am reminded of a similarity we are experiencing to the early Christians, under house arrest - enclosed in their “ house church.” Their persecution came from outside authorities at the time. Ours is caused by a virus.
It would seem, then, as we now have the time to ponder more fully the final days of Jesus, we have an opportunity to also experience resurrection more hopefully.
