“...until we all attain to the unity of faith...” Ephesians 4:13
Bill Gates wrote yesterday in the Washington Post: “World War II was the defining moment of my parents’ generation. Similarly, the coronavirus pandemic — the first in a century — will define this era. But there is one big difference between a world war and a pandemic: All of humanity can work together to learn about the disease and develop the capacity to fight it. With
the right tools in hand, and smart implementation, we will eventually be able to declare an end to this pandemic — and turn our attention to how to prevent and contain the next one.”
“United We Stand, Divided We Fall,” as the rallying cry goes. As Mr. Gates says: this moment in time will define us as a nation and as a world. We have already seen tremendous progress in great minds and great spirits coming together to defeat a common enemy. Working together we
will meet the enormous tasks that continue to confront us. Let us continue to believe in the goodness of God and in ourselves so we can define a generational moment pleasing to God and helpful to all humanity.
Prayer: Dear Lord, we ask that you continue to bring us together so that we may achieve unity of spirit and mind to meet the challenges ahead of us. This we pray in your name. Amen.
