  • Face coverings and physical distancing have proven to be especially divisive issues
  • It is always imperative that we exercise love, brotherly affection and common sense toward one another even as we seek to be prudent regarding the coronavirus-19 and appropriately respectful of guidance released by governing authorities

Letting Our Christian Light Shine

  • By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another – John 13:35
  • Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor – Romans 12:10
  • Therefore, do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is – Ephesians 5:17
  • Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God – Romans 13:1
