“I wear my mask to protect you, and you wear your mask to protect me, and together we show love.”
It’s not Trunk or Treat, and we’re still wearing masks to worship! I know it is strange, and I know it makes my beard itch, and my glasses fog up, but during the pandemic, it’s the right thing to do.
Recently, I’ve started hearing people doubting if COVID-19 is a real thing. This past week I listened to a person telling me it is all a conspiracy. I had another old friend sincerely explain, “the numbers are going up because they are testing more people.” That doesn’t make it any less real.
We’ve been fortunate in Stafford County, Kansas, but it is only a matter of time before the pandemic comes knocking on our door.
For those of you who doubt the danger (or even the reality), let me share our daughter has it. A cousin is dying from it. In congregations where I have served on the East Coast, Arizona, and in California, people I know and love have been stricken with it, and my family prays for them every day.
Frankly, the virus isn’t going away anytime soon. If you refuse to wear a mask — a mask that protects me — how are you showing love? I know it’s an old cliche, but it is still a question worth asking, “What would Jesus do?”
