According to a Pew Forum Survey a few years ago 76 percent of Kentuckians identify as Christians. Yet one of the great challenges for many Kentuckians is how to live out their faith in public. But with the coronavirus, there are several opportunities. Jesus said the greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. The second greatest commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself. This means that you look out for their well-being and minister to their needs when you have an opportunity. For those who are anxious, it means to pray for them and offer a calming word and encouragement when appropriate. Followers of Jesus should be grounded in faith, hope, and love, and those are the best things they can offer those who are hurting in a time of crisis.
