Rahm Emmanual said “you never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Now, I don’t subscribe to his political worldview, but we know that in a time of crisis, good can come from it. Since we’re practicing social distancing in the midst of the pandemic, we’re forced to slow down and rest more, reconnect better and in new ways with each other. The church is also finding new ways to help people. Some churches, like Simpsonville Baptist near Louisville, are expanding food distribution to the needy. Another church in West Kentucky, Pathway Baptist in Calvert City, received a love offering for servers at local restaurants who were laid off. And they raised over $10k!
