I’m observing some reactions on social media that people are taking during this pandemic. As people are facing this crisis they are reacting to the situation with denial. They say, “It’s not my problem. This crisis may not even be real.” As the crisis moves on, they react by dismissing it. “Ok, it real but it’s not big deal. It won’t last long.” That then bring them into defiance. They telling us to do certain things but, “I refuse to let this crimp my style. I’m not going to let this limit me! I’m healthy, for goodness sake!” But over time they move to a stage of delayed acceptance. “Well, OK, it is a big deal and it will affect me.” This then takes people to a stage of disruption. They say, “This crisis has just turned my life upside down and I’m going to have to make some tough choices! The kids are out of school. I’m out of work. I’ve got bills to pay. I’m going to have to rethink my priorities.” With that people move into distress phase. “This pandemic is going to last a long time. It is not going away easily. It is going to change everything!” We have never had this type of crisis to affect everyone at the same time. It is going to change everything and it will cause a lot of distress in people’s lives. But with determination we can get through this. With God’s grace we’ll get through this together. Let’s be determined as a church to get through this together. Let’s trust God like never before to make the difference with the tough choices we have to make going forward.
