We have people who quit going to church, and people who never went to church, and people who have been in church since the cradle. A lot of them feel like their denominations went off and left them. Some just go to our Bible study and then go to their churches.

Gene is a part of our class. His faith has stayed strong through this whole ordeal - even today. To the extent that any of us are "good", Gene is.

Sickness, hospitalization in the time of COVID has been difficult. Death in the time of COVID is bordering on cruel, because of the separation. Our Bible study never stopped meeting in person, although many among us have health issues that make them high risk - for them we have been streaming with Zoom. But being together is a gift, and a big part of who we are.

Gene has been up in San Antonio alone. I don't like the expression, "All we can do is pray", as if it is somehow insufficient. But at a time like this it feels like there should be more. Right now, all we can do is pray. I appreciate knowing that many of you are a part of that.

Praying for Mr. Gene. God and his church family is critical for his proper healing. I think the death of a spouse affects men a lot harder than women. Men tend to be used to their wife taking care of them. I work in the death care industry and some verses that comfort myself with having to deal with death and grieving families on a regular basis and not suffer the effects of burn out with such sadness.
2 Corithians 1:

3 [b][c]Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of [d]mercies, and the God of all comfort,
4 Which comforteth us in all our tribulation, [e]that we may be able to comfort them which are in any affliction by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.


Matt. 5:4
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.


Psalms 138 KJV
3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
